FOSTORIA Fostoria Community Hospital announced plans Monday for a $4.6 million improvement project that includes a centralized area for diagnostic services and a new entrance and lobby.
The work, which is expected to begin this month and be completed early next year, is the latest phase in a series of upgrades at the 25-bed hospital that have totaled more than $15 million over the last 10 years.
Hospital spokesman Julie Rein hart said the hospital built a new emergency department and medical office building in 1997 followed by a two-story addition that included a second-floor surgery department in 2003.
The latest project will put a centralized diagnostic center in the first floor of that addition and add a 2,000-square-foot main entrance and lobby.
Officials said they re trying to increase accessibility, offer more convenience, upgrade technology, and enhance facilities at the hospital, which has been part of Toledo-based ProMedica Health System since 2000.
