St. Anthony Announces Renovations


St. Anthony Hospital, Pendleton, Ore., announced it will spend $6.24 million to remodel its emergency room, kitchen, pharmacy and athletic club. The kitchen remodeling will make it possible for the hospital to offer room service-style meals for patients to order when they are hungry. Among other enhancements, the emergency room renovation will add a decontamination room for use in a chemical disaster. The pharmacy project will fund the replacement of equipment, and the athletic club project will provide more space for occupational therapy.
