The weather cooperated wonderfully with our planned groundbreaking ceremony last Friday. Beautiful blue skies served as the backdrop for this photo of the hospital board and other community supporters in front of the soon-to-be renovated main entrance.
One could attribute the sunshine sparkling off the ceremonial golden shovels for the glow on BMH President and CEO Steve Gordon’s face, but it had as much to do with his happiness that the Emergency Department expansion project is underway, as well as the media coverage it garnered in Vermont, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, and even as far-reaching as Washington State thanks to the Associate Press.
Zachary Stephens of the Brattleboro Reformer was there and put together this montage of photo and video from the day.
Construction began in earnest yesterday and there are a number of changes you need to know if you’re coming to the hospital as a patient or visitor. Keep checking back here and on the BMH Facebook page for updates as the project progresses.
