Ira Davenport plans $3.1M expansion

    BATH (April 3, 2012)—The Keuka Health Care Foundation is seeking funds for a $3.1 million expansion at Ira Davenport Memorial Hospital in Bath.
    To date, $2.1 million has been raised toward the campaign goal. The project will increase the hospital’s size by 2,800 square feet. Welliver McGuire has been chosen as the General Contractor. Work is scheduled to be completed by the spring 2013.
    The improvements to be funded by the campaign include expanding the square footage of the emergency department by 66 percent; doubling the number of treatment areas from three to six, creating the emergency department’s first dedicated pediatric treatment area for children’s care; upgrading medical equipment and information technology to improve patient outcomes and experiences; and constructing a new ambulance entrance and a grade-level, barrier-free entrance for patients, families and staff.
    “The increasing acuity and complexity of the cases we see in the current emergency department make the expansion and upgrade project particularly urgent. The project will enable the hospital to surpass today’s standards of care and will significantly improve the patient experience,” said Ira Davenport Memorial Hospital President James Watson. “We will be able to serve patients faster and more efficiently during periods of peak experience and accommodate growth in patient volume.”
    After completion, the expansion will be known as the Donald F. Coon and Joseph F. Meade Jr. Emergency Department. The current emergency department is named in honor of Dr. Donald F. Coon, former medical director of Ira Davenport Memorial Hospital. Meade was on the board when the hospital was located in downtown Bath. According to Arnot Health, Meade helped to oversee the construction of the Bath facility in 1960,
    The Meade family owned and managed Mercury Aircraft starting in 1924. Mercury produces sheet metal fabricated products. They have built airplanes and school busses and have done extensive work with IBM.
