Memorial Hospital of Carbon County celebrated the completion of the latest addition in its line of Carbon County based healthcare facilities on June 3rd, 2021 during a grand opening and ribbon cutting event. An impressive turnout by residents from across Carbon County signified the community’s excitement and support for the healthcare milestone.
MHCC announced the expansion of services within the Platte Valley on June 18th, 2020 during a Facebook Live event. Local contractor, Shepard Construction, was selected as the General Contractor following the request for qualifications process. Design plans by MOA Architecture were presented to the MHCC Board of Trustees and approved on July 23rd, 2020. The $3.3 million required for the project was appropriated entirely through the hospital’s operating budget without the use of loans or government funding.
Current and future healthcare needs for the Platte Valley were considered during the design phase, resulting in a 5,842 square foot, L-shaped modern design. Five exam rooms and one medical procedure room make up the Clinical Suite. The Diagnostic Suite houses the laboratory, blood draw area and X-Ray. A dedicated Physical Therapy Suite offers exam rooms and gym/exercise area. The large, centrally located waiting room and reception area provide comfort, convenience and efficiency to patients as they enter the building. A Conference Room creates the opportunity for community meeting space, patient education forums, and more.
Patient services, led by Dr. Chris Williams, began in October of 2020 from a temporary location during the construction process, providing a multitude of family practice services. With the completion of the new facility, services will expand to include Physical Therapy, Pediatrics, OB/GYN, Orthopedics, and General Surgery. A schedule for these services will be released in coming weeks.
