Warner Hospital and Health Services are playing a waiting game to get their planned improvements started within the facility.
The city-owned facility is planning to move their billing department to 70 Clinton Plaza, behind KFC but CEO Paul Skowron indicates they are waiting for fiber to be installed there so they can have internet connectivity.
Improvements to the emergency room and relocation of the pharmacy are a few of the plans the hospital is waiting on for approval from the State of Illinois. Skowron says once they get the 'thumbs up', they'll get those going.
The pharmacy project has had a new development recently. In recent interviews on Regional Radio News, Skowron has indicated that the project had a completion date requirement of the end of the year but the requirement has been modified.
The drive of the hospital has undergone a recent redo as well. Skowron indicates their circle drive and an area near family medicine will be taken care of. It will be touch-ups of some work that was done earlier.
