Aberdeen, WA- Grays Harbor Community Hospital is nearly finished with a major lobby renovation. “This renovation has impacted the patient flow in our very busy lobby area, but the end is in sight” Tom Jensen, CEO says, “We know that first impressions are important and we want our customers to have a warm welcome into our Community Hospital. We offer state-of-the-art care, and a newly renovated Lobby will reflect an atmosphere of excellence that will carry throughout a patient’s entire visit. Customers will notice an updated décor as well as additional privacy so will have been worth the brief inconvenience.”
In order to complete this exciting renovation the South end of the first floor will be completely closed for four days, Thursday, January 17th through early Monday, January 21st. Guests and patients will not be able to access the first floor from the main elevators during this period, but will be able to access the ground level, second and third floors. The tower elevator near the temporary main entrance can be used from the first floor to access the second and third floors.
This renovation will also affect some of our patient and business units on the first floor. During this brief interruption areas north of the gift shop and lobby space will be fully operational.
Both the ground floor entrance and the current main entrance will be available from 6AM to 8PM. All patients will be discharged through the temporary main level. Volunteers are available to provide directions, and additional signage will clearly designate way-finding for our patients and visitors. Valet service will continue to be available as a complimentary service to our guests.
Hospital staff, Medical staff, Board Members, as well as our community, have contributed funds specifically for this project having raised well over $100,000.

“I want to thank our community and our employees for their patience over the past couple of months. We are in the home stretch and I am excited because the results of our remodel reflect the quality of care received in the hospital” Says Larry Kahl, Chief Operations Officer.
