Please plan to join us tomorrow at 1 p.m. for the grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting! Even if you can’t attend the ceremony and ribbon cutting, please plan to stop by for a tour later in the day. We will be giving tours of the new construction until 6 p.m. This will be your only chance to fully see the new Emergency and Radiology departments unless you are a patient.
