Rendering of new admissions are at Roosevelt Warm Springs Rehabilitation and Specialty Hospitals.

MEDIA ADVISORY FOR TUESDAY, NOV. 14

WHAT: Roosevelt Warm Springs Rehabilitation & Specialty Hospitals will cut the ribbon on its newly-renovated rehabilitation hospital.

BACKGROUND: The entrance lobby to the facility has been relocated in the East Wing with a new roundabout drive and canopy so it is more welcoming and accessible to patients and their families. All patient rooms on the third floor of the East Wing have received new flooring, new paint and new ceilings. The nurse’s stations have new counters and countertops. The outdoor porches on the East Wing have been restored and reopened to the outside, so patients and their families can enjoy an open-air atmosphere once again.

WHEN: 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 14
