Construction: Behind the Scenes
Mary Greeley began treating patients in our new west tower in the spring of 2014, which provides larger rooms, specialty care rooms, oncology family suites, on-floor procedure rooms for minor surgical procedures, and a beautiful fifth floor rooftop garden.
But our $130 million dollar capital project didn't stop there, as anyone who's visited or even driven by Mary Greeley knows. Navigating the hospital campus during this time can be tricky, so if you're planning a visit, it's a good idea to look over the hospital floor map.

New, Expanded Emergency Department Now Open
On Thursday, April 28, 2016, Mary Greeley Medical Center began treating patients in a new, expanded Emergency Department (ED).
See some key features of our new ED.
In this short video,
we take you "under the plastic"
to see all the work being done
on Mary Greeley's south tower.
Under the Plastic
The south tower of Mary Greeley’s main building is covered with scaffolding and plastic sheeting. So what’s going on back there? Workers are stripping the old brick and concrete “fins” off the building. The tower is getting new blue-skin insulation and a new brick facade that will match the west tower. Workers are also installing new windows and doing the kinds of repair work you’d find on any major renovation.
The sheeting and scaffolding on the north side of the building came down in February, providing a hint what the entire building will eventually look like. The entire exterior will be done in spring 2016.
New Cellphone Antennae
As anyone who’s been in the hospital knows, cell reception isn’t always great, particularly in the new west tower. We’re addressing that with with a new Verizon antennae installed this winter.
