PORT JERVIS – The extensive modernization of Bon Secours Community Hospital in Port Jervis has reached another milestone – development of a state-of-the-art imaging suite, a new emergency and ambulance entrance, and an observation unit.
Hospital and community leaders gathered on Thursday to celebrate the advancements.
Michael Israel, president of Westchester Medical Center Health, the parent company to Bon Secours, praised the staff at the hospital and the work they are doing to keep the Port Jervis-Pennsylvania-and-New Jersey Tri-State area healthy.
The new high-tech equipment will provide the tools to aid the diagnosticians, Israel said.
“We are bringing in the best equipment, the best diagnostic equipment, the best facilities, to give the residents of Port Jervis and this area the ability to get the best care possible and to get that care on a local basis,” he said.
Israel called the reimagined hospital will transform the quality of care in the area.
Hospital President Dr. Mary Lahey the project will provide an “unparalleled level of care for this region.”
The total Bon Secours Hospital project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
A medical village is also being developed in Port Jervis.
