Good Samaritan Planning Grand Opening of Gibault Memorial Tower

The opening of the Gibault Memorial Tower is right around the corner. After years of planning and construction, the Grand Opening of the new tower will take place on Wednesday, July 15, 2015. Everyone is invited to attend the ceremony and tour the new facility. “We are so excited to finally be able to open the Gibault Memorial Tower,” stated Rob McLin, President and CEO. “We cannot wait to show the community what we have worked so hard to create and present this state-of-the-art facility to them.”

The Grand Opening festivities will begin with a ribbon cutting at 3:30 p.m., followed by opening remarks and ceremony at 4 p.m. and ending with guided tours from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. Senior Leadership, Department Directors, physicians and hospital staff will be assisting with the tours explaining and demonstrating some of the new technology and amenities in the patient rooms.

A couple weeks following the Grand Opening, patients will begin to move into the new tower. “We are working to make this process as smooth as possible,” stated Don Page, Director of Engineering. “We plan on moving a floor every three days with the help of employees and volunteers assisting with the move or guiding visitors to the correct locations.”

Good Samaritan encourages patients and visitors to look for signage throughout the hospital and ask for assistance when needed during this time. Extra volunteers will be available around the main entrances to guide visitors who are lost or looking for a patients’ room. “This will be an exciting next couple of months for all of us,” adds McLin. “We look forward to seeing the community during the Grand Opening on July 15 and are ready to move into Gibault Memorial Tower.”
