SVHC Launches Website for Emergency Department Renovation Project

BENNINGTON, Vt. — A $25.8 million project to renovate and expand the Emergency Department and Main Entrance of Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC), part of Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC), requires a lot of coordination and communication.
 
The health system has launched a website to facilitate sharing news and developments about the project directly with patients. The website is located at svhealthcare.org/EDRenovation.
 
"We want to share the excitement of this important project with our community," said Ray E. Smith, the administrative director of Corporate Development and public information officer for SVHC. "Additionally, the website and our ongoing communications will provide key updates to assist patients as they navigate our hospital campus during construction."
 
The new website includes a project summary, photos and videos, illustrated designs of what the new Emergency Department will look like, a parking map, a project timeline, and recent updates.  In addition to the website, SVHC will change directional signage and publish regular updates to the local media, social media, and its weekly e-mail newsletter.
