Signing Ceremony for Final Beam in the New Guthrie Troy Community Hospital

Troy, Pa. – The residents of Troy, Pa., Canton, Pa. and surrounding communities are invited to sign their name on the final beam to be installed on the new Guthrie Troy Community Hospital. The beam signing event will be held Wednesday, Nov. 7 from 3 – 6 p.m. at the Troy Vets Club.

A tradition with major construction projects, the signing of the final beam by the entire community symbolizes the community’s involvement and pride in the new Guthrie Troy Community Hospital. In late November, the beam will then be raised into place in a topping out ceremony, signifying the completion of the steel structure.

Hospital leadership will begin the signing ceremony at 3:30 p.m. and refreshments will be served.

Construction of the new Guthrie Troy Community Hospital will be completed in August of next year. In the meantime, residents can check on the progress of the facility by visiting and watching video from an on-site camera.

The $30 million project will bring a state-of-the-art critical access hospital to the region, featuring all private rooms and expanded surgical and emergency room capabilities. The site also has space for a helipad to save precious time in patient transfers.
