FISHERSVILLE -- Construction at Augusta Health begins Monday. The patient tower is getting renovations to better accommodate the patients.

The hospital is 20 years old, and nurses say it's time.

Dianne Moody is a nurse at Augusta Health. She says the renovations will remove old headboards and fix the bathrooms to make them more handicapped accessible.

The first floor is cleared out today and each floor will go one by one. She says staff is prepared to keep patients as comfortable as possible during the construction.

"The patient is at the center of everything that we do. So the remodel is with the patient in mind to make it a much better experience for them," Moody says.

Moody says the floors will go from carpet to nicer hardwood. The maternity wing is already finished.

Renovations are expected to be finished by mid to late December.
