OSAGE | June 18 will bring more changes to a patient's access to the Mitchell County Regional Health Center as the construction project advances into the next phase.
Patients accessing the Osage clinic, the Optometry Center, the emergency room and those with clinic appointments with Dr. Branstetter will temporarily access services through the North Entrance from Pine Street; patients seeking all other services, as well as Smart Pharmacy, should enter through the South Entrance near rehabilitation services.
With the recent launch of phase two the focus on the expansion transitions to the rehabilitation department, the main entrance of the health facility and the existing clinic renovation.
According to Shelly Russell, MCRHC CEO, patients and visitors should park either in the Our Savior's Lutheran Church parking lot or in the Pine Street parking lot, whichever is closest to the identified entrance for the service they are accessing. She said signs identifying both the North and South parking and entrances will be prominently displayed.
Additionally, volunteers will greet patients at the North entrance, to assist in guiding patients and visitors through the changes.
"We are doing everything we can to help our patients navigate our campus, making their visit seamless," Russell said.
"If at any time a patient or visitor has a question about how to access our services, we want you to call us. Our priority is your safety and ability to access the health services you need," Russell said.
Patients and visitors should visit mcrhc.com or the MCRHC Facebook page for regular updates on the construction project.
