The beam is the last piece of the structure - itís painted white and signed by construction workers and hospital staff.
Now, the interior walls, plumbing, electrical remain to be fitted in - and in a few months the new OR and Intensive Care Unit at Saratoga Hospital will be functioning and serving patients.
With the topping-off Saratoga Hospital is well on its way to completing a $34 million renewal project for the Hospital.
Kevin Ronayne, Hospital VP for facilties and overseer for the Hospital on the Project, talked about the need. Crowded, inadequate intensive care rooms - 9 now - would be replaced by 19 rooms geared to meet patient and anxious family needs.
The Operating Suites would be new and spacious capable of utilizing new robotic instruments and advanced techniques.
What a replacement for the Cramer House - the Hospitalís former nursing home and then the Mental Health facility.
