Munson Medical Facility Updates

Construction that began in the fall 2019 will lead to four new operating rooms, an upgrade of two existing rooms, the purchase of a new da Vinci Surgical System, and construction of a new central processing unit and waiting rooms.

New surgical services suite at Munson Medical Center

This project is expected to be completed in 2021.

As part of this project, Sixth Street between Madison Street and Beaumont Place has been permanently closed. Access to the Cowell Family Cancer Center entrance and traffic flow between the east and west parts of the northern side of the hospital’s campus is now via the new road which runs in front of the cancer center entrance.

Temporary Lobby Drop-off Drive is in Place

Construction on the Surgical Services expansion project has now moved beyond utility work involving street closures on the Munson Medical Center campus. The hospital’s Facilities Construction team and contractors are now focusing on the actual building site.

Construction has closed the normal patient drop-off drive to the hospital’s main lobby and a temporary drive is in place. Please see the map.

Community residents are asked not to use the hospital campus as a shortcut to other areas of the city.

All truck traffic is being asked to use West Front Street and Medical Campus Drive to access the hospital’s loading dock.

Free valet parking continues to be available to all Cowell Family Cancer Center patients. The cancer center entrance is available via Sixth Street to Beaumont Place and north to the street in the front of the cancer center or via West Front Street and Madison Street.

Why Surgical Services Needs to Expand

Munson Medical Center’s 17 operating rooms are near capacity. We are committed to delivering the right care at the right time. This includes providing surgical services in a timely manner. Full operating rooms can cause longer wait times for patients and delay care.

Additionally, the lack of adequate operating room space means recruiting surgeons and physicians is more difficult. As a rural hospital, it is critical that we update our facilities to provide the best patient care and remain competitive in recruiting outstanding health care professionals.

To better serve our patients in the coming years, we will also upgrade facilities for women and children and create more private rooms for patients. Visit Munson Healthcare Foundations to learn more about the project and how you can help us write the next chapter.
