Air Handler Weekend Work

Air Handler Weekend Work

On Saturday 6/17 and Sunday 6/18, construction crews will be working during the day to replace the Air Handler on the roof of the Emergency Department, on the side of the building closest to Bellevue Dr. This work is being done on the weekend when there are the least amount of surgeries taking place because this Air Handler serves some of the Operating Rooms.

The work will take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. both days. Noise from these activities will include saws cutting metal and screw guns. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience.

Replacing an air handling unit on the roof of the Emergency Department

Starting on May 30 through mid-July, Highland Hospital will be replacing an air handling unit on the roof of the Emergency Department on the hospital’s south side. The existing unit is more than 40 years old and needs to be replaced. This will involve the use of a crane, trucks and some metal-cutting noise as the old unit will need to be dismantled in pieces in order to be removed.

Mt. Vernon Ave. Partial Road Closure 12/10/16

This Saturday, December 10, Mt. Vernon Ave. will be closed from Rockingham St. to the South end of Highland Hospital. This part of the road will be closed from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. A crane will be onsite to install a new Linear Accelerator for the Radiation Oncology Department. A Linear Accelerator is a machine that provides external beam radiation treatments for patients with cancer. The old one was taken out on Saturday, November 12. Local traffic will be allowed on the street during the closure but delays can be expected. Highland Hospital will work with any households that are directly impacted by the closure.

Thank you for your patience. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Mt. Vernon Ave. Partial Road Closure, Saturday 11/12/16

This Saturday, November 12, Mt. Vernon Ave. will be closed from Rockingham St. to the South end of Highland Hospital. This part of the road will be closed from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. so a crane can remove the current Linear Accelerator from the Radiation Oncology Department. Local traffic will be allowed on the street during the closure but delays can be expected. Highland Hospital will work with any households that are directly impacted by the closure.

A Linear Accelerator is a machine that provides external beam radiation treatments for patients with cancer. The old one is being removed so that a new one can be put in its place in the next few weeks. We will send out another notice when the new Linear Accelerator is ready to be installed.

Thank you for your patience. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience. Please let us know if you have any questions. 

Continuing Construction on the New Addition

Continuing Construction on the New Addition

As part of the outdoor work that's left to be completed on the new South Addition, crews will be installing an ornamental fence on the east retaining wall, sometime in the next two weeks. With the addition completed, large amounts of noise from the construction site are no longer expected. Crews will still have a dumpster near the addition though, and a truck with a backup alarm will be picking it up occasionally as indoor construction continues.

Now that the ribbon cutting is finished, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our neighbors for their patience during this project. Highland Hospital Public Relations will continue to update this blog to provide our neighborhood with any updates on activities that are happening on hospital grounds that may impact them. We will also continue to hold our Highland Park Neighborhood Highland Hospital Interaction Committee meetings on a bimonthly basis.
