While Centegra is not at the stage of unveiling its architectural plans, officials intent to blend the new hospital’s design with the ambulatory care mall and Centegra Health Bridge adjacent to the proposed hospital site on Haligus and Reed Road.

Per the site layout, the main entrance to the hospital would face Haligus Road. The emergency department (ED) would face south towards Health Bridge, the release stated.
