The 27-year-old sign identifying Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC) is coming down as the hospital renovates its first floor corridor
CTMC announced a new look Monday. The first floor corridor will be remodeled to include new porcelain tile flooring, wood columns, sconce lighting and paint. In the coming weeks, resurfacing of the original main structure will begin on the outside.
The remodeling was put on hold during the hospital’s $35 million renovation and expansion completed this year.
“We’re remodeling the exterior of the original 1983 structure to better reflect the new, improved attitudes and service delivery that have evolved at CTMC these past few years,” said Clay DeStefano, the hospital’s director for PR/Marketing. “The exterior facelift renovation will compliment the recent 64,000 square foot expansion of our Women’s Center.”
The Central Texas Medical Center sign which has been a fixture above the hospital for 27 years will be replaced by a digital marquee near the front entrance. Current CTMC associates who were employed when the hospital opened on Sept. 4, 1983, will participate in a special photo opportunity before the removal of the old sign.
CTMC opened 27 years ago, when Hays Memorial built a new facility on Wonder World Drive. One year later, the hospital joined the Adventist Health System and the name changed to Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC).
