Interesting hospital, but I am disappointed that the customary chapel was replaced with a tiny “non-denominational meditation room”. A chapel is also “non-denominational”. I don’t think the majority of North Dakotans would be offended by such an addition with a more spiritual theme.

The fact that the administrators had to name it a “Regional” hospital is ominous. If it covers such a wide area, you don’t need to tell people that.
You don’t see a hospital in Fargo saying it’s regional, and you certainly don’t see the Mayo Clinic in Rochester proclaiming itself as “Regional”, even though they are.
Think about this: This supposedly “Regional” hospital in Jamestown has only 25 beds. Admit it, this name is nothing more then propaganda. For anything major, people are going to still go to Fargo, Minneapolis, or Rochester. You can call a pig Sexy, but in reality, it’s still a pig. Names don’t change things.

It sure is purdy and many of the rooms provide breathtaking views of I-94.

What I’m worried about is getting there if someone needs to in the winter.Getting up mill hill after a storm can be rough if not impossible,then there is the road going West.If the interstate is shut down,what makes anyone think the frontage roads would be any better. And from what I’ve been hearing on my scanner cummunications is rough from inside the building. Do we have any guarantee that we can even get to the place in the event of an emergency,during the winter? Plows come out after the storms,emergencies happen anytime! this is Something to think about,before we put a halo on the place.

Those are all very valid points John. It will be interesting to see what happens this winter when there’s a blizzard. There’s nothing to stop a strong NW wind. I’m guessing that the hospital will be receive priority when it comes to snow removal.
On the other hand, it’s not like the city streets were cleaned in a timely matter last winter. The streets around the hospital were a mess.
