Renovations to Medical Center Barbour were recently completed when medical and surgical in-patients were returned to the hospital’s newly completed 3rd floor.

Since January, maintenance staff members at MCB have worked on renovations on the hospital’s 3rd floor, repainting walls, replacing sheet rock and ceilings and giving the floor a general aesthetic makeover. Renovation work, excluding the floors, was done in- house by four maintenance workers and two temporary workers. The completion of this project marks an end to the planned renovations of the hospital.
For the past four years, MCB has made several changes in different areas of the hospital including renovating its ICU and 2nd floor out-patient care unit and establishing a Senior Care Center.
Renovations to the 3rd floor aren’t only aesthetically pleasing, but make the hospital more efficient too. Computers have been placed by each of the 24 beds on the 3rd floor (prior to renovations, the floor had 15 beds). These computers will allow staff to track patient charts conveniently by the patient’s bedside.
Medical Center Barbour Auxiliary president Bev Peterson presents a $2,000.00 check to Medical Center Barbour CEO Ralph Clark in support of the Medical Center Barbour Fund.  The money will be used to help the hospital purchase a new digital mammography unit.
