DeTar Hospital North Renovation Begins

Posted: Updated:

VICTORIA, Texas, January 8, 2018 – Today, DeTar Healthcare System administrators proudly announce a construction project at renovate the second floor, which includes both labor and delivery and the women’s services units.

Nearly every square inch of the departments will be upgraded. When complete, the areas will have improved functionality and modern finishes, with a variety of new equipment for almost every room on the floor.

“The $3.3 million project will be done in phases to allow hospital procedures to continue without interruption,” said Gary Malaer, CEO, DeTar Healthcare System. “Our primary concern is our patients’ safety and comfort. We hope to maintain patient satisfaction by working in phases so we may continue to admit patients to the units.”

The first phase begins on the women’s services wing. Once completed, construction will start on the labor and delivery wing’s Birthday Suites.

DeTar’s Birthday Suites are 13 labor, delivery, recovery and post-partum (LDRP) rooms that deliver nearly 1300 babies each year. The LDRP construction will be done in multiple phases so that patients will receive the quality care DeTar has provided for more than 90 years in the Crossroads community.

“In addition to new furniture for the patients, additional sleeper couches and rockers will be added to the L&D unit, and the women’s services side will offer new sleeper recliners for the comfort of guests,” added Malaer. “Of special interest are the double doors that will be added to make the unit more secure. These doors will “lock” the unit for patient safety.”

Through proper planning and with the assistance of physicians and hospital staff, the hospital will maintain sufficient beds and resources for obstetric, surgical or pediatric patients.

“We appreciate the patience and support of those we serve as we develop enhanced women and children’s units that are as responsive to the needs of our physicians and employees and, most importantly, our community’s needs for the next chapter of healthcare in Victoria,” said Malaer.

Hospital administrators expect the project will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2018.
