Augusta Health will undergo a facelift over the next few months. The Fishersville hospital announced plans this week to renovate the first floor of its patient tower, including converting six patient rooms from semi-private to private facilities. The renovation also includes upgrades to the bathrooms and shower areas.

The hospital also plans to renovate the Medical Office Building and create an “easy access” corridor between the main facility and the Heart and Vascular Center.

“We're excited to begin the renovations to our patient rooms to make them more comfortable and private for our patients and their families,” said Lisa Cline, Vice President of Operations at Augusta Health. “The rooms, when finished, will be a soothing place to heal.”

Construction is scheduled to start Monday, July 8, with the focus starting on the first floor renovations. Cline said that the hospital staff realizes the noise levels will increase and plan to have alternative paths set up around the first floor.

“Because we are renovating an existing space and not building new construction, we realize we will, at times, experience some noise,” Cline said. “We do apologize for that and are taking steps to minimize the inconvenience to patients and families.”

After the first floor construction finishes, Cline said the renovations will continue throughout the hospital, hopefully finishing by mid-December.
