Hospital departments on the move
Great Plains Regional Medical Center will commence its month long move of various departments to the hospital’s new downtown office location beginning November 2.
The relocation is part of the initial stage of the Great Plains Regional Medical Center patient tower project. The moves make it possible for the hospital to begin demolition of the areas that will pave way for the construction of the new patient tower.
“Hospital employees have been planning the details of this move for many months,” said Treg Vyzourek, Great Plains Regional Medical Center’s director of outreach and regional development. “The renovations to the downtown location, which is across from the Pawnee Hotel, will serve our non-clinical staff and operations very well.”
The move includes employees from patient financial services, North Platte Nebraska Physicians Group, Great Plains Health Care Foundation, accounting, business development, education, marketing, outreach and compliance. In total, 65 of the hospital’s 800 employees will be housed at the new downtown location at 214 East 5th Street.
According to Vyzourek, the select hospital employees will work in the North Campus downtown until construction is complete at the main hospital campus in the Spring of 2015.
The Great Plains Regional Medical Center patient tower project includes a 116-bed, five-story patient tower featuring modernized patient units, all private rooms, more space for updated technology and visiting family members, increased parking and the expansion of the central utility plant.
Great Plains Regional Medical Center North Campus will be open to the public Monday thru Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All department phone numbers will remain the same.
