Much has changed in the six months since we last updated you on the Liberty Campus expansion, and we’re excited to tell you about some of the progress.
Several parts of the building are still actively under construction, including the new 4th floor inpatient unit. The sights and sounds of construction will remain through the opening of the new unit, which is currently scheduled for August.
The first of the major projects that will be complete is the expanded 1st floor cafeteria which is set to open in mid-April. The larger serving area and seating areas will open at that time and new menu items will be available in August when the full-service kitchen opens.
On the 3rd floor, we’re adding new digital signage to communicate clinic and directional information more efficiently with families. A new wall mural will also soon be installed in the hallway facing the main parking lot and I75.
And, because 90 extra feet of space has been tacked on to the north end of the building, all four floors will benefit from a new bank of elevators being installed there. These will be available for patients and families to use as soon as the 4th floor opens.
To the south, construction continues on the Proton Therapy Center, which means the crane will be a visible landmark at least for the next few weeks. And in exciting news related to our neighbors to the south, beyond our campus, you’ll notice other changes to the local landscape. The Liberty Center retail complex being built there is expected to open in the fall.
We are excited for the impact these changes will have on our patients and families living in Butler and Warren Counties, and beyond.
