The medical center has spent much of 2020 adapting and responding to the Coronavirus.
Attempting to be a credible source of information for our community, modifying our hospital and clinics to accommodate both COVID patients and non-COVID patients, and working cooperatively with public health and other healthcare providers around the state and the nation to respond to a worldwide pandemic.
Additionally, we have developed new options for providing care for people at a distance, such as video visits and new ways of monitoring the health of our patients.
The fight against COVID-19 is the dominant feature of 2020 for Northfield Hospital + Clinics and unfortunately will continue into the new year.
The clinic in Northfield was simply out of room. The clinic expansion project designed in 2019 was completed in 2020 and is now operational, and we are now seeing patients in this new space.
A major expansion to our Birth Center was underway in 2020. This substantial addition to the hospital was done concurrently with the clinic addition.
New space for moms, babies and families offers new options and comforts for the birth experience.
A wound healing program has been evaluated and approved in 2020 with construction to be complete in 2021. This program will be housed in the lower level of the Birth Center addition. We are expecting to see our first patients early in the second quarter. Patients with difficult to heal wounds will have local access to comprehensive wound care programming, including hyperbaric oxygen chambers.
