Goshen Community invited to celebrate completion of new patient tower

Goshen Hospital is inviting the community to celebrate the completion of their new four-story patient tower. On March 16, a ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. Then, later in the day, from 3 to 8 p.m., there will be tours of the new facility, along with live music and art. Masks continue to be required at all Goshen Health facilities.

The tower offers numerous benefits including private rooms and state-of-the-art infection control capabilities, minimizing exposure to infection and enhancing safety for patients as well as caregivers. Enhancements were made along the way, as the COVID-19 pandemic helped inform new ideas about meeting the community’s needs. Patient rooms include sophisticated electronic communication technology, as well as more space, privacy and comfort for visitors.

“We are so excited to share the patient tower with our community,” said Randy Christophel, Goshen Health President and CEO. “We’re grateful for the support of the businesses and individuals who helped make this a reality. Their embracing our mission of improving the health of our community – together – will help us provide the most up-to-date, compassionate patient care.”

The spacious rooms allow for diagnostic and monitoring equipment to be brought to the bedside. The new building has sophisticated electronic communication, facilitating immediate feedback and monitoring patient safety.
