On Tuesday, August 8th, the Barrington Noon Rotary Club and their guests visited the Advocate Good Sheperd Hospital in Barrington. They were hosted by the hospital staff to an hour long tour, brief presentation and a Q&A session. The $256 Million modernization and remodel was the highlight of the visit. From the technological innovations to the private rooms, the hospital was made to be more patient centric and easy to navigate. One of the biggest challenges facing the staff was coordinating construction while not interrupting patient care. This delicate balance sometimes required the doctors and nurses to re-direct current construction plans if there was any kind of conflict in providing the best care possible to the patients. Overall, everyone was impressed and enjoyed the visit. Perhaps most importantly, it provided everyone a re-assurance that our local Barrington area is constantly improving and providing the best care to its residents possible!
