Construction is now complete for the first phase of upgrades taking place at Community Hospital in Torrington.
According to a release from Banner Health, the $13 million, 11,000 square foot expansion includes two state-of-the-art operating rooms, a new sterile processing department, and a cardiac rehabilitation center.
The addition is slated to open to the public next month, and Banner Health officials says they’re also investing $5 million to upgrade mechanical and electrical systems throughout the entire facility.
Zachary Miller, Banner Health Community Hospital CEO, says the new addition creates a more efficient working space for staff and an option to expand surgical care in the future.
The next phase of the project is a $6.8 million renovation to 13,000 square-feet of the original facility, and is expected to kick off in 2021.
