The main entrance to the hospital allows for easy access to the Emergency Room and our confidential patient registration areas. Please use this new entrance for all of your needs. The old main entrance is still in tact; however, parking on that side of the Hospital is restricted to the Horace Nye Nursing Home.

What the Project Means for the Community

The renovation and expansion project at ECH has not only enhanced patient care, but will also increase the services available to the community. This project included the renovation and expansion of the Emergency Room, a new main lobby and entryway, and a patient-friendly layout making access to services such as laboratory, medical imaging and the veterans clinic much easier. The project also includes adding such services as MRI coming in summer 2009, chemotherapy treatment in later 2009 and a cardiac rehabilitation program slated to start in 2010.

Other Highlights of the Project

For more information about the expansion project, call the Hospital at 518.873.6377.
