Area residents will have a chance to see the new Riverside Walter Reed renovations firsthand with an open house at the Gloucester hospital from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 19.

Members of the public will meet in the new main lobby area and be led through “new private patient rooms, a state-of-the-art surgical suite, new main entrance, and lobby and registration areas,” Riverside promotional material explained.

The new structure takes the emergency department from 6,300 square feet to 16,000. In total, the new two-story building boasts four operating spaces, two procedure rooms, as well as new pre-op and post-op rooms.

The project was completed more or less on schedule, as Director of Marketing, Strategy and Development Shannon Fedors had initially quoted a completion time of late 2018 when discussing the project last year.
