HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital in Shelbyville is starting a multi-phase, multi-million dollar development project to upgrade its registration area, radiology department and emergency department. The $2.1 million dollar project will bring higher quality care to those in Shelbyville and Shelby County.
Glenda Plunkett is the Marketing Coordinator at HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital. She says the expansion will not only upgrade services, it will provide a warmer, more friendly atmosphere for patients, visitors and staff.
Plunkett says part of the expansion includes upgrading the CT scanner in radiology from a 16-slice scanner to a 64-slice scanner. She compared this upgrade to going from a regular color TV to an HDTV in terms of picture quality, and she says not many rural hospitals have this technology. Plunkett says this expansion will build on the hospital’s already great healthcare offered.
All of the construction is expected to be completed by April.
