Salem Health preparing for hospital expansion

Dec 30, 2019, 12:18 PM by User Not Found
In order to meet the needs of a growing and aging community, Salem Health is preparing to begin construction on an addition to Building A that will add 150 beds to the Salem Hospital campus.

The project is scheduled to begin in early 2020, with first patient use planned for July 2022.

Due to the construction, the emergency room entrance will be relocated beginning Jan. 8 to maintain easy access to emergency care throughout the duration of the project. The entrance will move to the north end of Building A, on Oak Street. The entrance can still be accessed from either Mission Street or 12th Street.
