PASCAGOULA — Singing River Health System (SRHS) has cut the ribbon on the newly renovated Southeast Tower at Singing River Hospital.
The completely remodeled facility houses ortho/neuro, surgery, urology, OBGYN and pediatric patients at the hospital. The tower is three floors tall and features 15 rooms on the first floor and 16 rooms on both the second and third floors. The renovation project saw the complete interior demolition of the 1 Southeast, 2 Southeast and 3 Southeast floors at Singing River Hospital. Demolition included removing the walls, flooring, ceiling and all utilities, leaving only the original building structure of these areas. The renovated units are now equipped with technologies in infection prevention, ergonomics and aesthetics for modern healthcare. The rooms also feature computers that allow the clinical team to document the patient care in the room.
“We are excited about the completion of this renovation project and its ability to help us enhance the comfort and environment our patients experience in the hospital setting,” said Kevin Holland, Singing River Health System chief executive officer. “Every detail put into the design of the patient rooms was aimed at providing a positive experience for both the patients and their guests while they are in our care.”
Construction began on the three-story building in March 2013 and took 18 months to complete, finishing in September 2014. A combination of local contractors including Fletcher Construction, Stewart Construction, Air Masters Mechanical and Moses Electric contributed to the project.
