Glendive Medical Center (GMC) will begin renovations of the Outpatient Registration area on Tuesday, May 28, 2024. The Outpatient Registration area, located in the lower level of the hospital, is expected to be complete by this Fall. This remodel is being funded in part by the 2023 Grill & Chill fundraiser to enhance patient privacy.

“We are excited to finally start this project and bring this enhanced experience to our patients,” stated Parker Powell, CEO, “the new Outpatient Registration will be more aesthetically and functionally private and comfortable for patients.”

A temporary outpatient registration desk will be set up next to the Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy department in the lower level. All Lab, Respiratory, Imaging, Therapy, and Visiting Physician (Cardiology, VES, Physiatry, Ophthalmology, Dermatology, and REOH) patients will check in at this new location. Signage will be placed throughout the hospital to help guide patients to the temporary registration area. To keep this registration area private, the door to therapies will be closed. Patients will have access to the therapies department through a separate entrance located down the corridor towards the cafeteria.

Patients will still use the waiting room in the lower level to wait for their appointments, except MRI patients will be asked to use the seating outside of the MRI room in the hallway of the clinic. It is important to note that the downstairs ramp leading to the waiting room will not be open mid-June during part of the renovation, so patients, staff, and visitors are asked to be mindful of this and plan to use the main entrance corridor to access the hospital from the clinic.

“We want to thank our patients in advance for their understanding during this renovation,” stated Parker, “We will continue to provide excellent patient care as we anticipate this project to come to fruition. We believe our patients will appreciate the privacy it will provide, and the updated, modern design will also enhance their experience.”
