So is it true that some patients have moved into the new hospital?
It is true. One week ago today, we moved 63 patients and their families into the first two completed floors of the new hospital. The remainder of the building is under construction and patients will move in June when the building is completed. This early move works out perfectly as these two floors of the new hospital are connected to the existing facilities via sky bridges (the only two floors that connect in this way). The move went perfectly and it was a good trial for the larger scale move in June.
Check out the video for comments from our staff and patients about move-day and we’ll continue to keep you posted as we get ready for June.
