TORRINGTON – Charlotte Hungerford Hospital recently reopened its main entrance after completing a two-month improvement and renovation project as it begins its 105th year of operation, hospital officials said.
The completed project included the addition of a new modern two-post reception desk to allow more accessible parking for security and information personnel and all new furnishings in the main entrance and reception area. HVAC, electrical and sprinkler systems, and light fixtures throughout the space were also replaced, as was the hall’s exterior ceiling. Workers also sanded, polished and sealed the existing terrazzo floor tiles in the interior hall installed when the building debuted in 1930. The original Italian marble has also been repaired and repointed, as has the ceiling of the reception hall interior ornate and trim finishes.
