Parkview to have temporary renovations

Posted: Friday, March 29, 2019

Parkview Huntington Hospital (PHH) leaders want to make the public aware of a temporary change: the hallway connecting the hospital to the John B. Kay Medical Office Building will be closed for renovations April 1 through April 14. The closure and renovation of the hallway are part of the final phase of the hospital expansion, which is anticipated to be finished at the end of April.

During the hallway closure, anyone wishing to move between the buildings will need to use the hospital’s main entrance and the front entrance of the medical office building. In short, they will need to exit whichever building they are in and walk or drive around to the front entrance of the other building.

The Rehab and Wellness Center will remain open; however, Rehab patients will no longer enter the temporary registration area via the door in the hallway connector. The old Rehab entrance inside the hospital lobby will be reopened so Rehab patients should use that doorway to access the registration area for Rehab appointments. The hallway connector should reopen on Monday, April 15.

“We hope patients, staff and visitors will bear with us just a little bit longer,” said Angie Hormann, manager, Rehab and Wellness Center, PHH. “This is one of the final pieces in the puzzle. Soon, the entire center – both the new construction and the renovated space we used to occupy – will be open. We really appreciate the patience and understanding patients and clients have displayed throughout this whole project.”

In addition to the hallway connector, the former Rehab and Wellness space is currently being renovated and will soon be joined to the new spaces that are already complete. It will house the new Rehab registration area, additional treatment rooms and offices, and at its heart, the cardiopulmonary rehab gym. That will bring the number of gyms at the facility to four: the cardiopulmonary rehab and main gyms in the adult rehab portion of the building, and the sensory and motor gyms in the pediatric rehab area.
