Bv ROBERT K.OGLESBY Staff Writer PALM BEACH GARDENS Sunday. Palm Beach eoun-tians are invited to a tour of the new Palm Beach Gardens Community Hospital from 1 to 5 p.m.. according to executive director William Horner. Located on Burns Road, east of State Road Alternate A1A. the 100-bed facility is expected to help reduce the growing burden on other area hospitals : I'nited American Medical Servies. Inc. (UNAM-KD'. took possession of the unopened hospital on October Court, brought against UNAMED and the city of Palm Beach Gardens by John D. MacArthur several months ago. Gardens city officials expect that settlement of the suit will come shortly after the hospital is opened, but no official statement to that effect has been issued. Sunday, local residents will have "perhaps the first opportunity to really see a hospital without being a patient." Horner said with a smile. "They'll get to see an operating room from the other side of the coin." cility. but I understand a number of doctors have applied." Kimmel concluded. Concerning the hospital's policy towards admissions. Horner said this week. "We have a completely open policy. No one will be refused admission to the hospital unless we simply run out of room." Although Horner did not say so. there is a distinct possibility that the hospital soon will be filled to capacity. Along this line. UNAMED has already planned a 180-bed addition to the complex, it was revealed several weeks ago. Horner emphasized that the hospital's admission policy would include welfare and indigent patients. "This hospital is for all the people." he said. Although UNAMED currently has possession of the complex, it is yet to receive the deed to the facility, due to a lawsuit pending in Circuit STAR 1 TREK 1. Since that time. Horner noted this week, "the physical facilities of the hospital have been completely renovated." "All new furnishings and equipment have been added." he said, "and the total investment now tops $2 million." Built in a figure eight shape, the yellow block building encloses two large patios decorated with trees and shrubbery. The interior colors are shades of green yellow and tanwith accents or orange. All patient rooms have access to baths, and in addition to beds, are furnished with a desk, dressing table and several chairs. Gold spreads cover the beds, complemented by block-printed draperies. Per day rates at the hospital compare favorably, though some-what higher, with rates at other local hospitals. Private rooms will cost $50 per day. compared wtih $40-43 at Good Samaritan. $42-50 at St. Mary's and $41-43 at John F. Kennedy. Semiprivate rooms at Gardens Community will run $39 per day. while the dharges at r svt I NEED NEW FLOORS? XBETYOU. call TERMITES?

Ward rates at the new complex will cost $34 per day. compared with $29 at Good Samaritan, and $32 at St. Mary's and John F. Kennedy. Horner attributed the difference in rates to increases that will come at other hospitals in 1969. "We simply went ahead and set our rates in view of the increases that other hospitals will make early in 1969." he said. He said that Gardens Community does not "expect any rate increases in the foreseeable future." The hospital, which opens for medical patients Monday, maintains an "open staff" policy, whereby any qualified physician can become affiliated. Horner said. Dr. Bernard Kimmel of West Palm Beach said this week that the Gardens Community Hospital has been tentatively approved by the Palm Beach County Medical Society. Kimmel. incoming president of the society, said, "Bernard Samson, of UNAMED, has met with us and outlined what appears to be a very well-operated hospital facility." "If they follow this outline and do what they have promised to do." he continued. "I am sure that there will be no problem in staffing the hospital with fine doctors." Most doctors in northern Palm Beach County have received applications to join the staff at Gardens Community. Kimmel said. "Of course, because staffing is by individual application, we have no direct knowledge of who will practice at the fa- USE PENNEY'S LAY-AWAY! HAVE THEM PAID FOR BY CHRISTMAS!
