The grand opening ceremony for Winn Army Community Hospital's new wing is scheduled for 11 a.m., Tuesday. The "Liberty Wing" is located along the northwest side of the facility adjacent to the Outpatient Clinic entrance.
Its opening marks the first major expansion of Winn ACH since the hospital opened in 1983. The first floor of the 65,000 square foot wing houses musculoskeletal functions including: physical therapy, occupational therapy, orthopedics and podiatry. The second floor includes behavioral medicine and social work service.
The Liberty Wing is the first phase of a two-phased plan to expand the installation hospital. Phase II is ongoing and includes a new Emergency Department, an expanded pharmacy, more than 200 additional parking spaces, and renovations to 13 clinics and departments. The Emergency Department is projected to open later this year and all Winn ACH construction projects are scheduled to be completed in 2016.
