Mercy Hospital Clermont opens intensive care unit

Mercy Hospital Clermont celebrated the opening of its new intensive care unit with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception Jan. 18.

The brand new $4.5 million ICU marks the completion of the second phase of a three phase expansion project at the hospital.

ICU Director Libby Harvey, who is known fondly as ‘the little lady’ by the hospital’s staff, said that she was thrilled to be a part of the hospital’s continued growth.

“The completion of the new ICU is another huge step in providing the highest quality health care to our community,” she said in her remarks. “The new unit is something that we are all very grateful for and take tremendous pride in.”
