You have two opportunities to get a sneak peek of the new patient care tower before it officially opens for business. The first is the Open House specifically for UConn Health employees taking place this coming Wednesday, April 20, from 4 to 7:30 p.m.
You’ll get a unique behind-the-scenes look at our new 11-story, state-of-the-art hospital. After the tour, you can pose for photos with Jonathan the Husky and some of the UConn cheerleaders. You’ll also get a chance to enter a drawing for UConn basketball tickets, and enjoy a snack to commemorate the occasion.
The second event is open to the public so this is when you can bring your family and friends and show them the cool place you work. It’s on Sunday, April 24, from noon to 3 p.m.
There will be guided tours through the emergency department, operating room suite, patient care floor, and public areas. You can take a fan photo with the 2016 Women’s Basketball National Championship Trophy or a selfie with the UConn Husky Mascot or cheerleader. There will be drawings, refreshments, giveaways and some special surprises. WRCH radio personalities will also be there broadcasting live during the event.
No R.S.V.P. is needed for either Open House but the tours do require navigating several flights of stairs. For more info, check out health.uconn.edu/opening. Hope to see you in the new tower!
