Salem Township Hospital Expansion Continues as Cardio Unit Moves Into New Facility
"That will be a great addition because we'll be able to have one location for our cardio-pulmonary department" Hilton-Seibert said, "It will have its own waiting room and reception area, and it will have it's own stress testing and we're doing a lot of stress echoes...we're also performing pulmonary function tests, EKG's, halter monitors, and our sleep lab."
Hilton-Seibert says the new pharmacy is just a month or two away from completion, with mostly punch list items now being addressed. She reports the new specialty clinic area may be ready sooner than expected.
"We were looking at building both floors at the same time, but because of the weather, we focused more on the lower level--[but] thats great for us, because this allows us more space [to house specialty physicians], and we'll be able to branch back out" said Hilton-Seibert.
Hilton-Seibert says its too early to say when the new specialty physician clinic will be completed.
