One of the unique aspects of the expansion of Community Hospital South is the design input, provided by members of the staff and community. Patients, nurses and physicians helped design the new hospital, which will include a five-story patient tower with 150 all-private rooms; six new operating suites; and convenient, expanded outpatient services located closer to home.
