After officially becoming part of Wise Regional Health System on March 26, Wise Regional-Bridgeport is finally, quietly, fully open as a full-service hospital again.
A “grand re-opening” celebration is 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, May 17, with a ribbon cutting hosted by the Bridgeport Chamber of Commerce at 11:30.
The hospital’s emergency room has remained open and busy throughout the transition, which included some fairly extensive remodeling, particularly in the surgical suites.
The first surgery in the renovated suite was Tuesday, and more were scheduled through this week and beyond.
The public is invited to the May 17 celebration.
