Spectrum Health Lakeland Hospital in Niles celebrates completion of renovations
NILES, Mich. -- Spectrum Health Lakeland Hospital in Niles celebrated the completion of a two-year long renovation project on Thursday.
Hospital officials and donors gathered at the hospital in Niles for a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new cardiovascular, orthopedic, and bariatric units.
The $1.2 million cardiovascular unit and the $2.4 million ortho-bariatric unit both opened on Tuesday.
So far, patients are very happy in the new space.
"We've heard a lot of incredibly positive feedback about the new spaces," said Chief Nursing Officer Dawnell Schmeling. "How large they are, the usability of the bathrooms, and the view."
It's not just patients that are benefitting from the expansion of the hospital's facilities, which includes larger waiting rooms, mobile cardio stress tests, and exercise rehab rooms.
"We really have a space that's not only really comfortable and state-of-the-art for our patients, but also is a place where really top-talented providers want to work as well," said Chief Medical Officer Dennis Disch.
The changes now make it easier for the hospital to give patients the attention and care they deserve from highly qualified providers.
