Presently, the hospital is building a parking garage and has plans to expand the emergency department.
“Nothing is more important to us than serving the needs of our patients,” said Garnet Health President & Chief Executive Officer, Scott Batulis. “Amongst many other benefits, our Middletown Campus has improved access to additional care and outpatient services for our patients by conveniently offering them at a centralized location.”
