“I am very satisfied and very happy with services provided by Perry Memorial.”

A new $6.5 Million Emergency Department/Outpatient Services wing and renovation (Phase I) was completed and opened in 2005. Phase II construction consisted of transforming and renovating the “old” Emergency Department into an Outpatient Pre-and Post-Surgical area, which was completed in 2007.

Phase III construction was completed in 2009 and included a new Hospital Chapel, renovation of the main lobby, which provides better handicap accessibility, refurbishing of the Business Office and Hospital Cafeteria, and mechanical equipment upgrades. Perry’s next planned phase consists of the renovation of patient rooms for the inpatient units.
