Patients Rerouted as UHH Prepares for Next Step in Building Project
Friday, June 22, 2018
As the building project continues at Upland Hills Health, the East Entrance and parking area at the back of campus will be closed until further notice to ensure the safety of everyone. ALL visitors and patients must park in the front of the building and enter through the Main Entrance or the Specialty Services Entrance. This affects patients going to the hospital or hospital services, SSM Health Dean clinics (both specialty and family practice), the Wellness Center, or Upland Hills Health providers on campus.
“We are very excited to bring our community a new hospital, and we are about to get started,” said Lisa Schnedler, CEO of Upland Hills Health. “With the project comes growing pains that may create temporary inconveniences for our patients. We recognize this and plan to do everything possible to minimize that while we are building the new hospital.”
The community is invited to attend a groundbreaking ceremony for the new hospital at 10 am on Friday, June 29th. A short program will be held to speak about the project and its impact on improving care and accessibility for the community.
Greeters and personnel will be available to help patients find their way, as patients may need to travel a longer distance to reach their appointment. Clinic staff are encouraging patients to allow extra time to get to your appointment.
For questions, patients can call the main hospital phone number at 608.930.8000.
