TidalHealth Nanticoke today begins a series of renovations to the fourth and fifth floors of the Seaford, Del. hospital that will result in the temporary relocation of two services at different times over the course of the next 24 to 36 months.
The work, to enhance the safety, appearance and delivery of healthcare, will impact the Specialty Surgical and Robotics Unit (SSRU) and the Obstetrics Unit (OB).
The temporary relocations of the units will be handled in three phases. Phase one, starting Dec. 14, will see the SSRU and its team move from its traditional fifth floor location to a new space on the first floor; the former Pediatrics Short Stay Unit.
The renovations are expected to take four months. Once complete, the OB Unit will follow a similar move to the same first floor area, followed by a second move of the SSRU back downstairs in the hospital for a final refurbishing of their permanent unit.
TidalHealth will keep the community updated on the progress of the renovations and the timing of the second and third phases of the plan.
While the renovations are underway, TidalHealth team members, including its Security officers, will be available to assist visitors in reaching the rooms of their loved ones, and signage will be posted reminding all visitors of the temporary changes.
In each move, the healthcare teams of professionals working on those units will relocate with the patients, resulting in no lapse or change in the quality of care.
TidalHealth apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause in the short term but looks forward to an improved healthcare experience for patients and their loved ones upon completion of the renovations.
