Renovations Continue at Salem Township Hospital

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

The 11-million dollar renovation and addition to Salem Township Hospital continues to move forward.  Hospital President Stephanie Hilton-Siebert announced to the hospital board Wednesday afternoon the Illinois Department of Public Health has given a permanent occupancy permit to the Rural Health Clinic and is allowing temporary occupancy for the new pharmacy and cardiopulmonary areas.

"That has really allowed the construction to continue on our ICU and and Medical-Surgical wing. They're also looking at our speciality physician clinics and we're hoping to get that done sooner. That would allow 20 specialty physicians to come in per week" said Hilton-Siebert.

Hilton-Siebert says the remaining portion of the project is ahead of the original completion schedule of the fall of next year.
