CalvertHealth Medical Center Expansion Updates

- October 11, 2017 -

It’s an exciting time at CalvertHealth! After months of planning and design review, the first phase of the private room expansion project is underway. Over the next several months, there will be many changes to the campus as the project progresses. We will continue to provide updates as they are available.

Starting Thursday, October 12 at 6pm, the small physician lot located between the CalvertHealth Medical Center (hospital) and the MOB will be closed. This parking lot is highlighted in yellow on the map below. During this time, pedestrian access will be limited and all exits leading to the area outlined below in red are to be used for emergency exit only.

The coffee bar and chapel will be closed starting on Monday, October 16.
The areas will be relocated next week to their temporary locations and should resume operations on Monday, October 23.

First Floor Transition
President and CEO, Dean Teague and his executive assistants, Levonne Wiseman and Lianna Brown have moved to Suite 301 in the Medical Office Building.

What to Expect During Construction

> The $50-million project is the largest in CalvertHealth’s history. When complete, one-fourth (76,485 square feet) of the hospital will be new or rebuilt
As construction begins at CalvertHealth Medical Center (CHMC) later this year, we want to make sure that everyone is aware of the changes that will affect certain areas – such as entrances, waiting areas and parking.

The $50-million project enabling CHMC to convert to private patient rooms is set to break ground in mid-September and take approximately three years to complete. "By 2020, our community will have access to a state-of-the-art facility that allows for enhanced patient safety, patient satisfaction and operational efficiency," said President and CEO, Dean Teague.

We’ve taken steps to minimize the impact wherever possible and apologize for any inconvenience you may experience due to the construction.
KEY CHANGES

The main entrance will close beginning late summer and not re-open until December 2020.

  • The Emergency Department (ED) entrance will serve as the entrance to the hospital.
  • The Same Day Surgery waiting area will be relocated to the Diagnostic Imaging waiting area. Patients should enter through the ED.
  • The hospital gift shop will be relocated to the hospital basement (same level as the cafeteria).
FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE

  • Free valet parking is available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of the Medical Office Building which is close to the ED entrance via outdoor and indoor walkways.
  • If you prefer to park your own car, keep an eye out for our guest shuttle to transport you to any building on the hospital campus.
  • Volunteers will be available in the ED main entrance to help you find your way.
