Photo Recap: 10 Images of Move-In Day

December 23, 2009

We officially moved into our new hospital on Tuesday, December 15th. Moving patients from the Center Street campus to the new building at Randall and Big Timber Roads was a massive undertaking, one that took months to plan. On the 15th, things got underway well before the sun was up. Here’s a photo recap of the historic day.

    These images are gorgeous! What an exciting addition to Elgin.

  2. I’m delighted to see the photo for “recapping a busy day”. I’m the artist who created the art piece that’s the backdrop for that conference.

    I’ve since moved from Elgin, but Sherman was always a large part of my life. This new building and move is historic. It’s unbelievable to view such great photos, what a magnificent building and move! CONGRATULATIONS! Job well done by all!

    As a former employee of Sherman Hospital, now living in Dallas, TX, I was absolutely thrilled to see that you all had finally moved into your new building. Job well done, congratulations!

    Thanks for keeping us informed. Move was a very big deal. I’m sure the patients are enjoying their private rooms now.
