Bay Area Medical Center is MOVING!

The new hospital may look complete, but there’s still work to be done.

Starting on Monday, August 6, departments at Bay Area Medical Center will begin moving to the University Drive location.

Patient Care department moves are planned to allow us to maintain our current level of care at the Shore Drive location while preparing the new hospital on University Drive to begin seeing patients at 8 AM on Thursday, August 16.

Patients and families may see boxes, carts, moving trucks and staff in more casual dress during these ten days. There will be more traffic in and out of the hospital and on University Drive as trucks and staff make their way between the two buildings.

What you will not see is any change in the quality of care you need and expect. We are staffing up to be able to do both jobs the way they need to be done. We will keep the noise down, hallways as clear as possible, and remain focused on our patients.

Because no matter what else is happening, your care comes first.

If you are a patient on August 16.

By the morning of Thursday, August 16, we will be operating two fully‑functional, fully-staffed hospitals for that day.

If you are a patient Bay Area Medical Center on Wednesday, August 15, you and your family will receive written information and counseling that will prepare you for the next day.

If your doctor determines you can be discharged on Thursday, August 16, you will go through a normal discharge process.

If you need to continue your hospital care on Thursday, August 16, you and your family will be given an approximate time when you may be transferred to the new hospital.

Your nurse as well as the nurse who will take over your care after you are transferred will meet with you before you are moved.

Most transfers will be done through our ambulance service. For patients who can be moved in a wheelchair, local transport vans will be used.

Your progress along the way will be tracked and coordinated through a central command center. Your family members will receive communication on your arrival at the new hospital.

If you are medically unable to be transferred, we will continue to care for you at our current location until you are able to be moved.

Any patients in the Emergency Department will be either discharged home, transported to the new ED, or admitted to the hospital.

Expectant mothers will either be transported to the new hospital or will deliver at the Shore Drive hospital, whichever their doctor determines is safest.

Because no matter what else is happening, your care comes first.

If you are coming to Bay Area Medical Center on August 16
