Hospital is designed to expand in ways that keeps it agile with multi-services in a consolidated area of the hospital. Fewer “hard walls” between services.

The Lincoln City City Council got “Wowed” Monday night when North Lincoln Hospital CEO Dr. Lesley Ogden laid out the hospital’s plans to re-invent itself in 2019.

Dr. Ogden says the new hospital will be a complete re-design. It will have a much more welcoming entry environment. Intake will be more comprehensive with a welcoming staff that will direct patients to either interview rooms, or to labs, medical testing and evaluations and provide far more out-patient services because that’s where today’s more advanced medicine is leading us. Everything, she says, will be within a short walk or a ride in a wheel chair or gurney.

As with the new hospital they’re building in Newport, hospital diagnostic, operating and recovery rooms will be multi-use – very versatile – programmed to prevent patients from having to walk or be transported long distances.

Dr. Ogden told the council that the new North Lincoln Hospital will be smaller in terms of beds – 12 beds for regular patient rooms – 4 beds for patient observation, like when they get out of surgery or after other complex treatments.

Dr. Ogden says the hospital will be full of floor to ceiling windows in public places to create a beautiful outdoor/indoor feeling which will create a more natural and healing environment.

Dr. Ogden added that the hospital will have a major supply of medicines strategically located for rapid access in the event of any local or regional natural disaster because when they hit, the coast can be isolated for extended periods of time. She says both North Lincoln Hospital in Lincoln City and Pacific Communities Hospital in Newport will be ready. Both will be newly built to withstand strong earthquakes.

2019 will be a big year for advanced medical treatments in brand new hospitals in both Newport and Lincoln City.
