Pinckneyville Community Hospital broke ground on an $11 million renovation and expansion on May 27. The 19,222-square-foot project includes a new family medical center, patient wing addition and renovations to the hospital’s existing rehabilitative therapy and emergency departments.
The family medical center will include 33 exam rooms, three procedure rooms, enlarged nurse stations, offices and a new lobby. The center will also provide multipurpose space for community education and behavioral health programs. Additionally, a new patient wing will add four acute care patient rooms, increasing the hospital’s total bed count to 20.
Renovations will include the hospital’s existing rehabilitative care department and emergency department. The existing occupational therapy department will receive additional space for specialty rehabilitation services while the emergency department renovation will increase the number of emergency exam rooms from three to six.
Lawrence Group is providing architecture and interior design services, and is working with Murray Company and Horner & Shifrin. Construction on the 11-month project is scheduled to begin June 2021. All hospital departments will remain open during construction.
