$10 million upgrade planned for Jennings hospital

Updated:

JENNINGS, La. (AP) - Jennings American Legion Hospital is moving forward on plans for a $10 million facility upgrade.

CEO Dana Williams said Thursday the State Bond Commission has approved $10 million in hospital revenue bonds for Jefferson Davis Hospital Service District 1.

Williams tells the American Press the three-phase project will focus on improvements and upgrades to the operating and emergency rooms and entrance areas.

The project will include an upgrade and revitalization of the operating room area to include new operating rooms and a new patient holding area with support services.

Williams says patient registration, including outpatient admissions and information, will be moved to the front lobby. The move will allow the emergency room entrance to be strictly used for emergencies.
