Heywood Hospital's 26th Anniversary Golf Classic, held on June 18thth at Oak Hill Country Club in Fitchburg, raised over $115,000 to support Heywood Hospital’s most significant construction project since the Watkins Building, the full-scale design of a new Surgical Pavilion, to replace the current operating rooms, designed and built in the 1960s.
Heywood Hospital’s modernized Surgical Pavilion will create access to leading-class surgical care by offering a highly efficient and expanded operating platform to increase access to high quality surgical services. Additionally, the expansion of surgical care will drive business development and employment opportunities in the region, ensuring the strength and viability of Heywood Healthcare as an independent, community-governed provider.
Heywood’s premier Surgical Pavilion will include six Operating Rooms, two Minor Procedure Rooms, four Endoscopy Rooms, a Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), a Patient Preparation/Recovery Area and staff support space.
