The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. – Lao Tzu
What was held as a vision by many, began with that single step of breaking ground for the Barnesville Hospital Emergency Department Addition/Renovation project on May 14, 2014 and culminated with the official reopening of the entrance to the Richard L. Doan Emergency Department on October 1, 2015.
Traffic flow around the hospital has been restored to pre-construction status. All Emergency Medical Service traffic will utilize the Emergency Department entrance ramp to transport patients to our facility. All non-emergency hospital traffic and access may use the Hospital Drive Entrance or the parking lot entrance to the campus.
Self-transport patients will also use the Emergency Department Entrance for Emergency Department care. Designated parking spots for Emergency Department patients will be provided. Appropriate signage will be posted directing individuals through the reopening.
Barnesville Hospital will continue to provide Contract Security Guards to assist in directing individuals to the Emergency Department.
Should you have any questions related to reopening the Emergency Department Entrance, please contact: Cynthia Touvelle, Chief Nursing Officer 740-425-5169; Michael Carpenter, Facilities Director 740-425-5109; or Ryan Gallagher, Emergency Department Manager 740-425-5104.
