Construction Progress

May/June 2015

This newsletter is part of Enloe Medical Center’s commitment to keep you informed about significant construction activity for our expansion project. Updates for the next two months include:

Roadwork complete – The City of Chico’s road improvement project near the hospital is now
complete. West 5th and 6th Avenues from Esplanade to Arcadian and w. 7TH Ave. from Esplanade to Magnolia, as well as Magnolia between 6th and 7th are now fully rebuilt, with new storm sewers underground, and new sidewalks, curbs, gutters and fresh striping. That’s great news for all of us in the neighborhood!

Emergency Department expansion project nears completion – The second phase of the
Emergency Department project continues on schedule. After ceiling work, tiles and other final
touches are in place, equipment will be installed and we will schedule the licensing approval process with the state of California. The goal is to occupy the new Emergency Department space by August or September. Park construction will be scheduled begin two or three months later.

New fountain, landscaping nearing completion – We expect to complete construction of the
new fountain in front of the Emergency Department, as well as landscaping in that area, by the end of May. Landscaping will include grass, ground cover and small plants, adding to the trees and bushes that are already in place. The fountain will be a closed system that recirculates water and is operated off of a weather-sensing system.

While we do our best to project dates, they are subject to change due to factors including weather and permits.
