MILLINOCKET – Millinocket Regional Hospital has announced that its Oncology Clinic has been relocated.
Starting Wednesday, May 15, the clinic will be temporarily relocated to the med/surg floor in rooms 216 and 218 where it will remain until the renovations to the permanent clinic area are completed. With the move complete, the next phases of the renovations are underway.
Katie Mackin, Marketing Director for MRH said that the project is scheduled to get underway in July and that it should take four to five months to complete. Mackin also said that the renovation will be coordinated and run with the one at the Millinocket Memorial Library.
The next steps are to get plans approved by Fire Marshall and DHHS (pending); finalize the contract with Nickerson and O’Day; and obtain the plans review and permit from the state of Maine.
A more in-depth article detailing the financial progress of this project will be in a future issue of this paper.
