WAYNE – Providence Medical Center (PMC) played host to Wayne Chamber Coffee Friday morning. PMC CEO Jim Frank updated the community on services, spoke about Sunday’s open house and hospital employee Ardie Sommerfeld was recognized by the Chamber Ambassadors.
Chamber Coffee began with recognizing Sommerfeld as a quarterly Congeniality Award winner. She was recognized for being a welcoming presence at PMC’s front desk, a sentiment echoed by Frank.
“When you come in the front door, Ardie’s the first one you see, (she) greets you with a smile, takes care of you, gets you where you need to go,” Frank said. “We’re just glad to have Ardie part of our organization.”
PMC is holding an open house Sunday to mark the end of their hospital improvement project that began in 2015. Frank said nearly every area of the hospital has had some work done during the project and Sunday’s open house will show off the finishing touches.
“We’ve been working hard to finalize things like signage, art work, outside with landscaping, just things you don’t really think of as part of the actual construction project,” Frank said.
Along with the open house, Frank talked to those in attendance about utilizing the hospital’s CT scanner for heart and lung screening to catch potential problems early on. He also mentioned that PMC will be welcoming a reconstructive hand and plastic surgeon in the future.
The next Wayne Chamber Coffee will be hosted by Viaero Wireless at 304 Main Street in Wayne at 10 a.m.
