Mark Vizenor, CHC, CBET joined Rebecca Lewis and Kelly Mortenson from DSGW Architects to speak in respects to The Business Case for keeping it local when building at at the ASHE (American Society for Healthcare Engineering) Region 6 conference on Thursday, April 18, 2019.
All three explained, discussed and supported the use of utilizing local resources for building projects citing nine purposeful steps that can help result with a successful project.
Mark is the Facility Operation’s Manager at FirstLight who oversees day to day operations of the physical plant, along with safety, security and construction activities for the organization.
We are deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Dr. Thomas J. Stillwell of Minnesota Urology. Dr. Stillwell has been caring for patients at FirstLight for over twenty-five years. Please keep Dr. Stillwell’s family in your thoughts during this difficult time.
As we creep closer to the end of this project, it’s hard to believe that it is this far along.
What’s happening now?
The main entry-way, otherwise known as Central Check-in:
stairs are poured
awning will be painted to match the Emergency Department (ED) Entrance
Allows for efficient patient drop- off and pick-up
The hospital lab moved into a new space, remember all draws will happen in the clinic area, so if you are scheduled, make sure you register with Central check-in!
The Mora clinic
Clinic renovations continue to happen inside and just outside the south wall of the Mora campus. Construction is slated to be finished at the end of June and is adding and additional 7,500 square feet for exam and nurse/provider space.
Behind construction walls for the past four months was the Centralized Check-in and Common’s area. If you happen to stop in for a clinic appointment you will be surprised with a new look.
The place to “check-in” for all of your appointments, whether it be clinic, lab or to see one of our many specialties.
The new gift shop will open sometime in July (simultaneously) with the eye clinic. The FirstLight Health Care Volunteers are busy with deciding what type of inventory to purchase, sell and display.
An additional space was added to the front in FirstLight’s new design, a Wellness office.
The main hospital phone number (320-679-1212), and the 800 number (1-800-245-5671), ARE NOW OPERATIONAL. Registration staff are able to take messages, but unable to transfer calls to different departments.
If you are experiencing an emergency, dial 9-1-1.
Mora clinic phone lines (320-679-1313) remain down.
Thank you for your patience while we are working diligently to resolve the problem.
