Open House Scheduled for June 11


The public is invited to a special Open House event celebrating the completion of the brand new state-of-the-art Crawford County Memorial Hospital located at 100 Medical Parkway on the west edge of Denison. The Open House will be held Saturday, June 11, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

A special dedication ceremony, complete with a ceremonious ribbon cutting, will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. Several politicians representing Western Iowa have expressed an interest in attending this ceremony. As soon as we have confirmations of attendance, we will post that information on this page.

Tours of the building will begin at the conclusion of the dedication ceremony (probably around 10:30 a.m.). The public will be allowed access to several areas of the building that will become “off-limits” once the hospital opens. For example, on that day you can go inside the hi-tech operating rooms and get a “behind the scenes” view of where patients are taken for surgery, along with pre-op and post-op care. Several members of the surgical staff will be on hand to answer questions.

Once the Open House is complete, this area will undergo intense cleaning and sterilization – and will not be available for public tours ever again. Don’t miss this opportunity!

Light refreshments and snacks will be provided to everyone who tours the facility. Gifts will also be handed out at the completion of the tour.

During the tour there will also be a special display commemorating CCMH’s 60th anniversary in 2011. Furthermore, a fire truck, ambulance and Life Flight helicopter will also be on display in the parking lot.

All ages are welcome to attend this special Open House event and interpreters will be available. For more information, contact Becky Vonnahme, Director of Development & Public Relations, CCMH, at 712-263-1804.
