Starting at 7am on Tuesday, August 9th, part of the main parking lot of the hospital, to include the entrance into the main lobby of Fairfield Memorial Hospital will be closed for approximately 2 days. Drop offs and picks up will be at the Surgical Pavilion. This closure is due to a crane that will be moving in heavy equipment as part of the Phase II renovations. There will be periods of time when they will be moving steel beams overhead and no staff or visitors will be permitted in certain areas of the main part of the hospital due to safety concerns. During these times FMH Security Staff will help guide visitors and staff. We anticipate that these closures and restrictions will be in place until the evening of Wednesday, August 10th. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of closure. ... See MoreSee Less
