Norton County Hospital to undergo maintenance for new chiller
July 16, 2019
NORTON, Kan. – Norton County Hospital would like to inform the public of upcoming work around its facilities that is projected to take place July 22-27. During this time, the hospital plans to have a new chiller installed for its air conditioning system.
Patients, visitors and employees should expect large equipment and trucks in the area that may take up some parking spaces. We are providing some tips for people at our facilities to consider:
- Please park in open spaces closest to Highway 36 to allow workers to complete the project efficiently. Please note that if a vehicle needs to be moved, our staff may page you over the hospital’s intercom system by listing the vehicle’s description and license plate number.
- The main entrance of the hospital will remain open to be used as an emergency and non-emergency entrance. This may include, at times, an entrance for patients being transported by ambulance.
- A back-up chiller is being used in the process. This means we plan to have air conditioning at all times without interruption. However, when the transition from the old chiller to the new chiller takes place, the outpatient and specialty clinic may need to be evacuated for a short period of time. We will communicate directly with those people affected prior to, during and after the evacuation period.
Thank you for your patience while this important process occurs. We will inform the public if any major changes to the plan occurs. If you have specific questions, please contact Gina Frack, Norton County Hospital CEO, at 785-877-3351.
