Curry Medical Center Brookings

The Curry Medical Center's Brookings facility is located at 500 5th Street. The new emergency department will be located toward the left side of the building in this photo.

Renovations to Curry Medical Center in Brookings are expected to begin September 20 and end in December. Curry Health Network asks that you pardon the dust as work is done to make key technological upgrades to diagnostic imaging equipment. 

“Curry Health Network continues to improve and expand the services it offers to the communities it serves. The renovations at Curry Medical Center provide for the installation of a new CT Scanner and Nuclear Medicine Camera, both arriving at the of October,” said Ginny Williams, CEO of CHN.  

Williams wants to reassure patients and visitors to the facility that impact will be negligible.

“They will notice a mobile CT Scanner outside the building, but the quality of the mobile CT is better than the CT being replaced, and patients will present to registration, as usual,” she said. 

 CHN provides expert care in health — from diagnosis to rehabilitation — and this new state-of-the-art technology will improve the health network’s imaging capabilities. The CT scanner is a critical diagnostic tool that helps with everything from identifying fractures to aiding in cancer screenings. This new scanner provides for more accurate scans, a better patient experience, and is an overall aid to the medical team.  

The Nuclear Medicine Camera allows diagnosticians to get a clear and thorough picture of your heart, which helps identify coronary artery disease. The technology can be lifesaving as it can show which patients may have a greater risk for heart attacks. 

These technological advances are an investment in the health of the Curry County community. They will help the expert team at CHN have a clearer picture of your healthcare needs and provide the best possible tools right here in your community. 

High quality care and excellent service are the top priorities at Curry Health Network, and there will be no disruption to normal services at Curry Medical Center during construction. Appointments can be scheduled as normal by calling 541-412-2000.
