A ribbon-cutting was held last week to open the new patient tower at McLeod Seacoast.
According to Monica Vehige, administrator of McLeod Seacoast, the newly built patient tower “is so much more than just bricks and mortar."
“These walls house a place where lives are touched and healing begins," Vehige said. "Our staff makes a difference in people’s lives every day and this gives us the opportunity to do even more.”
After the ribbon-cutting, attendees had the opportunity to tour the facility -- a 108,000-square-foot addition that includes two new patient floors and a dedicated ICU. The tower also has an evidence-based design and is aimed to focus on the patients and their families’ maximum comfort.
The new patient tower will start accommodating patients beginning Sept. 10. The addition of the new tower will increase McLeod Seacoast’s hospital to a 105-bed state-of-the-art medical facility.
