WAYNESBORO, PA. - Demolition of five houses will begin in November to make way for an expansion of Waynesboro Hospital, although the hospital's vice president said no date has been set for construction.
Two houses on Enterprise Avenue, two on Main Street, another on Prospect Avenue and a garage will be torn down, hospital Vice President Ken Shur told the Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce at a Friday breakfast meeting.
The project includes a 9,300-square-foot addition to the hospital's diagnostic imaging center and 14,500 square feet of space for outpatient services, Shur said. An additional 105 parking spaces would be added as well, he said.
Renovations to the hospital's third floor medical-surgical area also are being considered, Shur said. That floor would get new lighting and flooring, showers would be added to rooms that do not have them and others that now accommodate three patients would be converted to semiprivate rooms, he said.
