WINNEMUCCA — For more than a year, the community has watched Humboldt General Hospital’s new medical office building take shape.
On Monday, July 11, residents will finally get to enter the more than 30,000 square feet of space that includes eight medical office suites and a central reception and scheduling area.
Crews continue to work on smaller expansions of some departments in the hospital including Radiology, Respiratory, the Business Office, Medical Records and Emergency.
THE EMERGENCY ROOM at HGH will move to temporary quarters later this month. Beginning at 6 a.m. Monday, July 18, the ER will move from its current location to the hospital’s Physical Therapy Department.
Emergency Room patients may access the temporary location through the hospital’s Harmony Street entrance—the same entrance patients and visitors have been using for six months during the hospital’s medical office building expansion.
Patients should follow the signs for both parking and admittance.
Those who experience extreme difficulty accessing the changed location once on campus should call 911 and the hospital’s EMS personnel will lend assistance.
July 11-15, crews from R&O Construction will construct the temporary Emergency Room in the Physical Therapy Department. The ER will remain in its temporary quarters until Monday, August 22, at which time it will move back to its permanent—albeit completely remodeled—location.
The new and improved ER will include a private check-in area as well as walls between beds in order to heighten patient privacy. The nurses’ station also will be moved and remodeled in order to allow for a more commodious and efficient work environment.
Following its remodel, the Emergency Room may still be accessed from Mizpah Street; however, it will now connect to the new physician clinics as well as the hospital’s administrative offices with its own enclosed lobby. This much-improved emergency waiting area will serve our community well into the future.
The temporary Emergency Room will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Three nurse practitioners also will open new family practice clinics. Sandra Deveny, APN-C, Lisa Jonkey, FNP, and LaDonna Reyka, FNP-C will treat patients ranging from infants to the elderly.
The three providers also will help staff The Walk-In Clinic.

Residents needing assistance from the Business Office or Medical Records will find personnel in temporary quarters in the new Sarah Winnemucca Conference Room. Please ask for directions from any member of the Humboldt Hospital Auxiliary or at the central reception desk.
To reach the new clinics, patients should park in the hospital’s main patient parking lot, which can be accessed from Mizpah or Harmony streets.
Patients may access the building through the main entrance facing the ambulance station or through the side entrance facing City Park.
