DANVILLE — Presence United Samaritans Medical Center's North entrance will be closed temporarily beginning Tuesday due to an exterior renovation project.
The north entrance, primarily used for staff, as well as public access to the cafeteria and ground level conference rooms, faces Fairchild Street. It will be closed during construction, which is expected to last into the first quarter of 2014.
Improvements will include replacing the canopy, renovation to the vestibule, replacement of the door and windows, and other exterior work. During this time, signs will be posted to direct visitors to the east entrance, which will be re-opening. Minor work will continue in the vicinity, but the east entrance will be open.
This project is being funded by a grant as part of Gov. Pat Quinn's Illinois Jobs Now - Hospital Capital Investment Program.
Also, over the next two weeks, crews will be around the medical center campus installing new directional signs and other signs, reflecting the new name and logo for Presence United Samaritans Medical Center.
