Patients and visitors who regularly enter Titusville Area Hospital will be pleased with the new appearance of the facility’s lobby.

According to Holli Wolfe — director of marketing, community relations, and the Titusville Area Health Center Foundation — the renovations to the lobby began in March.

Wolfe said the renovations included stone work on the walls, new flooring and lighting, the installation of a fireplace, and renovated restrooms.

“We wanted it to have a more welcoming feel when you come into the hospital,” she said. “The lobby is the first area (people) see, and it makes people feel more comfortable.”

Wolfe said the renovations were completed July 1.

She said Howe Contractors performed the renovations, and the hospital’s maintenance department assisted in the work.

Wolfe said the lobby renovations cost about $200,000, with $78,400 provided by donations from the community, including funds donated by the John Henne Charitable Trust, the Five M Foundation, Catherine Q. McKinney, and the Fleming Family Foundation.

Area residents will have an opportunity to tour the newly renovated lobby during an open house on Aug. 3, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Wolfe said Lee Clinton, hospital CEO, will be present for the ribbon cutting.

Refreshments will also be served.

Wolfe said the open house will include a presentation on Lyme disease.

She said the presentation will focus on prevention and treatment of Lyme disease, as well as signs and symptoms of tick bites.

“Our main goal is to educate the public,” Wolfe said. “We look to do more of these types of presentations in the future.
