By: Aprill Murphy

ALBION, Nebraska (December 4, 2023) – Boone County Health Center (BCHC) announces significant updates to their facility to ensure the safety and well-being of patients, visitors, and staff. These changes include a one-way entrance in the south parking lot and locking the north door of the facility.

To streamline and improve the parking experience for our patients and visitors, BCHC has made changes to our south parking lot. Patients and visitors should enter the parking lot from 7th Street on the east side of the clinic and exit toward 8th Street to the west, creating one-way traffic through the parking lot. These changes are intended to enhance accessibility, ensuring that individuals can come and go more easily. Updated signage has been installed.

In an ongoing commitment to provide a secure environment, BCHC’s north entrance will be employee access only. However, it will be unlocked during events held in the Kvam Community Room. The outside door will be open 24/7 in order for the public to access the Medication Disposal Unit.

Patients or visitors coming to the emergency room, hospital, treatment room, respiratory therapy, lab, radiology, or patient accounts should enter through the east doors. Those coming to the medical clinic, specialty clinic, surgery, cardiac rehab, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or speech therapy should go to the south entrance.

These updates align with our ongoing efforts to prioritize the safety and well-being of our patients, visitors, and staff. BCHC remains committed to providing exceptional healthcare services in a secure and comfortable environment.
