Main Entrance to Hospital Closed Saturday and Sunday, July 30 & 31 Due to Construction
Please Use the “Link” Entrance
Due to scheduled construction, the hospital’s main entrance will be closed beginning at 6:00am this Saturday.morning, July 30th, through 6:00pm Sunday evening, July 31st.
All patients and visitors are asked to enter and exit the hospital via the “Link” – the walkway that connects the hospital to the Health Center Building. (see photo on the right)
Copley personnel will be stationed inside the “Link” to assist patients and visitors throughout the weekend.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
The “Link” is located just off of the “old” Emergency Department parking lot; i.e. the first lot on the left once you enter Copley’s campus from Washington Highway.
The door into the “Link” has a blue sign clearly directing one to the hospital. (see photo below, right).
The scheduled construction is for Copley’s new Surgical Center. It is being built off the main entrance, between the main lobby and the Rehabilitation Services, connecting to the back of Outpatient Services.
The project involves new construction to build the integrated Surgical Center, renovation to the Outpatient Services Center’s Infusion Suite to create a corridor connecting the Emergency Department and inpatient rooms to the Surgical Center, and modifications to re-purpose the current OR space.
Copley will gain seven (7) more parking spaces for patients and visitors near the entrance when construction is completed. Traffic flow on and off Copley’s campus will improve thanks to the construction of an exit road circling around the Rehabilitation Services building out toward Lamoille Home Health and Hospice and exiting onto Farr Avenue.
Construction should be fully completed in 18 months, with the anticipated opening of the Surgical Center scheduled for the end of 2017.
