The Huhukam Memorial Hospital in Sacaton is getting a facelift.


The hospital is undergoing a number of expansion and remodeling efforts, most notably at its front entrance and Primary Care Department.


Patients are being directed to a temporary entrance, just east of the regular front entrance. Construction is expected to last about a year. Visitors and patients can expect to see a new front entrance, patient drop off zone and expanded and remodeled patient lobby and Primary Care Department by the summer of 2017.


Gila River Health Care says the work being done is in an effort to improve patient privacy, accessibility, safety, security, and convenience.


Walk-in patients are asked to check in at the temporary registration desk on the back wall, to the left, after passing through the new temporary entrance.


Patients with appointments are asked to check in as they usually do, at the regular patient registration desk located in the Main Lobby. It is still in operation to receive only those patients with appointments.


Patients visiting the pharmacy do not need to check in at either registration desk, but may proceed directly to the pharmacy.
