Thanks to those who attended tonight's Feasibility Update at the Nolan Center. We weren't quite as packed as the Community Meeting back on April 9th, but that was expected. Sorry, but we couldn't get SEARHC to pony up more AK Air miles for a door prize.
What we were treated to was an update on the new hospital project, as well as some conceptual designs and potential floorplan configurations for the theoretical SEARHC healthcare campus. While I'd love to drop them all on you now, you'll have to wait until Wednesday as SEARHC and Wold representatives still have one more presentation on tap, which takes place tomorrow night in front of the Borough Assembly. Then, come Wednesday morning, I'll have some juicy conceptual info to share here on the blog.
I do want to reinforce that last sentence by saying again, the designs being presented are, in fact, concepts. Nothing is concrete, nothing is close to finalized. Everything is very much fluid and in the "can this be done?" phase. The main positive to take away at this time is that they came back, not only Wold, but SEARHC. It's still moving forward. And while SEARHC didn't offer up another envelope full of milage, perhaps they're one step closer to delivering a hospital.
Also, WMC is now on Instagram. If you're looking to for another outlet for happenings at WCA, or updates on the new hospital, follow us at instagram.com/wrgmedctr. Our social media widgets can always be found in the footer of all wrangellmedicalcenter.org pages.
