Memorial Health plans to relocate its human resource department, the board of trustees learned Thursday night.
The department is currently housed in a small building on the east side of the hospital campus, the former home of the Union County Health Department. Operations will be relocated to the Morey Medical Building on Morey Drive.
The existing facility, which sits just steps away from the new inpatient tower currently under construction, will be demolished to make way for additional parking and greenspace.
The project is slated to take more than three months, at an estimated cost of $654,000.
Renovation of the Morey Medical Building will cost $315,000, while demolition of the old building is estimated at $80,000. Creating on the new parking lot will cost $200,000 and the remainder of the estimate if from built-in contingency costs.
The board also approved a travel and expense policy for the Memorial Health Foundation, the fundraising arm of the operation. The policy separates the foundation from similar policies of rest of the health system.
The policy spells out how funds may be expended in support of the fundraising operations and who is eligible for reimbursement for such expenditures.
The policy also establishes who must approve the reimbursements and mandates that no funds will be repaid pertaining to political expenses, such as campaign contributions.
