The Grand Opening Ceremony will be held at 2:00pm in front of the new addition’s main entrance. The public self-tour Open House will follow at approximately 3:00pm and last until 7:00pm.
The Grand Opening program will start with the Presentation of Colors by the American Legion Post #7 Color Guard, with Brayla Alwin singing the National Anthem. BBGH Chief Financial Officer Tracy Jatczak will welcome and introduce special guests. Opening remarks will be given by BBGH Board of Trustees President David Briggs, CEO of WESTCO, followed by comments from USDA Nebraska State Director of Rural Development Maxine Moul. The Keynote Address will be given by BBGH CEO Daniel Griess, FACHE. Following his presentation the Alliance Chamber of Commerce will host the Ribbon Cutting . The program will end with the Alliance Ministerial Association’s Blessing of the new Chapel. Refreshments will follow.
After the program ends, the public is invited to start touring the new facility. Staff for the various departments located in the new addition will be on hand in their respective rooms to provide information and answer any questions.
“This will be a great opportunity for the communities we serve to tour the whole building, including areas they won’t have access to in the future due to HIPAA privacy regulations; sterile environment areas (surgery, OB, Emergency Department rooms, ICUs, etc.) and staff circulation areas,” Mr. Griess said. “So we invite everyone to take advantage of this great opportunity to see the new Box Butte General Hospital patient care facility that will serve their health care needs for decades to come.”
Box Butte General Hospital is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
