Hospital gets repairs

The El Camino Hospital board of directors recently approved about $1.55 million in renovations to the new main building, according to the healthcare organization's administrative chief.

Changes to patient rooms' doors, the addition of a teleconferencing system and repairs both cosmetic and utilitarian to various areas of the hospital are among the more expensive items on the list of upgrades, according to Ken King, chief administrative services officer at El Camino.

There have been a number of functionality issues with El Camino's new main hospital building since construction was completed in 2009, King said. However, El Camino officials said they have been putting off making repairs until now, when everything could be addressed in the most cost effective manner.

The upgrades are scheduled to be completed by May.
