FLOWOOD — Woman’s Hospital has recently undergone a significant facelift that has changed the exterior of the familiar building on North Flowood and transformed patient and visitor areas into contemporary spaces. The renovations, which began in mid-2012 and were completed earlier this month, are part of an ongoing effort to provide a feeling of exclusivity to the hospital’s public and patient spaces, said hospital officials.
Improvements made to the hospital originally built in 1975 include a complete renovation of the main lobby and waiting area due to the incorporation of adjacent space and offers easier accessibility to the hospital’s admissions and business offices. The accompanying refurbishment project added upscale, yet comfortable seating areas; fresh paint in modern and uplifting colors and new flooring throughout.
Outside, a modern and spacious covered drive-through area was constructed, offering additional space for patients disembarking and entering vehicles. Other exterior changes include the addition of a new parking lot on the southwest corner of the grounds; a complete facelift of the building and accompanying landscaping improvements.
The latest renovation project complements one that was completed several years ago, said Sherry Pitts, chief executive officer. The hospital continues to upgrade exterior and interior spaces in an effort to further complement Woman’s boutique-like atmosphere.
“We understand that patients need more than just medical care when they visit our hospital,” Pitts said. “They are dealing with issues of time, convenience, privacy and the comfort of family members. We continue to implement the latest design elements combined with comfortable, soothing aesthetics. In addition to the medical care and treatment they have come to expect from Woman’s, we feel we’ve successfully enhanced the feeling of exclusivity patients expect when they enter our doors.”
