By Madhu Srikantha

The Center of Care and Discovery hospital pavilion, which is slated to open in early 2013, is hosting an open house for faculty and staff today from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. A second open house will be open to the community this Saturday, December 8 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Registration is required for tours during both open houses.

The faculty and staff open house features a 45-minute tour with stops on four floors and the seventh floor Sky Lobby, which will be open to the public after opening.

The community open house is geared toward celebrating the space. Health screenings will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis, and NBC5 personnel will be in attendance. Several local restaurants and shops will have discounts for guests of the open house that Saturday, adding to the celebratory nature of the event.
