Health care not just about landscaping

Take a good look at the Delnor/Cadence property on Randall Road in Geneva. As you look beyond the new cancer center or drive through the Delnor property, you will notice the whole front entrance, parking lot, and landscaping are completely gone.

You will also notice a huge quantity of very costly new landscaping has been added to the rest of the property. Why is this extremely expansive and expensive project taking place? Is this to improve patient care? Delnor has a very fine reputation for excellent patient care. So what's to improve?

On behalf of the many highly invested former donors to the re-establishment of Delnor Community Hospital on this property, what in the world is going on? There was great pride in the beautiful brick, green roofed buildings and the lovely vista shown in many promotional pieces. Unfortunately they have been destroyed. For what purpose?

Has anyone seen a drawing for this project, either for the external layout or the internal redesign? Not only the general public, but the employees and volunteers don't know what is going on. As the Affordable Care Act becomes effective within the year, those of us who are concerned about the projected increased costs of health care are asking why money is being extravagantly spent on "bricks and mortar." Common sense dictates reserves should be set aside to cover real health care costs.

And finally, does anyone know where the front door is or have I missed the sign?
