Arlington Lions Club makes donation to Ridgeview Sibley Medical Center renovation project

Representatives from Ridgeview Sibley Medical Center and Ridgeview Sibley Foundation gathered with members of the Arlington Lions Club on March 27 to accept the first check of the Lions’ $10,000 donation in support of the Arlington campus renovation project.

“The support from organizations, businesses and individuals in this community has made a significant impact on the successful of this project. Ridgeview gratefully accepts this generous donation from the Arlington Lions Club and we thank them and all who have contributed to enhancing health care in Sibley County,” said Ben Nielsen, Ridgeview COO and Administrator at Ridgeview Sibley Medical Center.

Moving into April, the Arlington campus renovation has transitioned into its final major phase of construction. Four new and private emergency rooms have opened, the private ambulance entrance is operational, a new inpatient nurses’ station is complete and all patient monitoring equipment has been updated.

The remaining project items include the completion of the Urgent Care spaces, the new waiting room, Emergency Department/Urgent Care nurses station, and registration and support areas.

Patients will continue to access the Emergency Department and Urgent Care through the clinic entrance until the project nears completion in early summer.
