PeaceHealth to revamp Sacred Heart Medical Center

PeaceHealth has announced plans to modernise the Sacred Heart Medical Center, University District campus located in Eugene, Oregon, US.

PeaceHealth has announced plans to modernise the Sacred Heart Medical Center, University District campus located in Eugene, Oregon, US.

The hospital was last expanded in the early 1980s. The 15-month revitalisation project is slated to commence in April next year.

It will include the removal of four vacant buildings which include the previous Johnson Unit and the remaining wing of the former Sacred Heart General Hospital.

Under the project, the main lobby of the hospital will be transformed to accommodate the construction work and will serve as a hub for patients, visitors and caregivers.

The lobby will also feature a dining area while the Chapel and the Heartfelt Gifts shop will be relocated to more prominent spaces.

PeaceHealth Oregon network chief operating officer Todd Salnas said: “PeaceHealth has been planning to remove these outdated, unused buildings and to make the hospital lobby a more inviting, active space.

“This work in Eugene is part of the evolution of PeaceHealth’s long-range plan to guide investment in our facilities throughout our networks in Alaska, Washington and Oregon.”

PeaceHealth plans to provide care to the patients, during the modernisation project, in the main hospital tower and the inpatient Behavioral Health Unit.

Those mementos that are important to the heritage of PeaceHealth will be inventoried and archived.

It will partner with local and nonlocal nonprofit groups in order to recycle building materials, furnishings and equipment which can be used. 

PeaceHealth has about 16,000 caregivers, a group practice with over 900 providers and ten medical centers that serve urban as well as rural communities throughout the Northwest.
