If you wake up seeing double in the wee hours Tuesday morning you will no doubt want to go to the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital to be seen by a doctor. But once there, you may find yourself seeing double all over again. For a brief few hours before dawn on Tuesday, the hospital will finally make the big move — from the old 1972 building to the new, $52 million 2010 building that was just completed two months ago.

And because this is a hospital, making such a move requires a doubling up, if you will, at least of the medical staff. That means a double team of doctors and a double team of nurses — one set at the old hospital and one at the new.

And then, in a twinkling (they hope) the new hospital will be open for business.

“It’s all hands on deck, actually,” said Rachel Vanderhoop, hospital development director, yesterday, in a brief description of the logistics that will be employed in the move.

Beginning at 3:45 a.m. Tuesday, all hospital staff will be on hand, including doctors, nurses, lab and X-ray technicians and senior staff members. President and chief executive officer Timothy Walsh will be there. So will Ms. Vanderhoop.

“We have been moving small things and running drills, and now everything is ready,” Ms. Vanderhoop said.

Spokesmen from the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health were at the hospital last Friday to give the hospital its final sign-off before opening. “They were there all day and it was a very, very rigorous review,” Ms. Vanderhoop said. “They were very thorough; they turned on everything, every oxygen vent, every gas line, they opened every door. It was very detailed. They reviewed our fire system and disaster plans — we passed that with flying colors.”

Other sign-offs that have come in the last few weeks include a certificate of occupancy by the Oak Bluffs building inspector, issued on May 20, following a sign-off by the Martha’s Vineyard Commission on the parking plan for the new hospital.

And now it is time to move.

“Everybody is just excited and just wants to do it,” Ms. Vanderhoop said, adding: “It’s a little bit like, let’s just get in there and we’ll have a punch list and get the things done that need to be done.”

And while Ms. Vanderhoop said the hospital is expecting some confusion on the part of the public — the hospital is running an advertisement in today’s Gazette that among other things contains a public reminder that physicians’ offices will remain in the same location — she said the general expectation is for things to run smoothly. “I would say by noon we should be all moved,” she said.

The emergency room will be the first to move, followed by acute care, intensive care, maternity and the operating room. “We expect to be ready for our first admission by around 4:15 a.m.,” Ms. Vanderhoop said. “Our goal is to have inpatients in the new building in time for breakfast, which we will serve them there,” she added.

Some things, such as beds and wheelchairs, will not need to be moved because there is all new equipment in the new, 18-bed hospital.

And there are new computers and a new telephone system, all engineered by Partners Health Care, the Boston hospital conglomerate that owns the Vineyard and Nantucket hospitals.

And finally, of course there is the expectation of a new arrival — who will have the first baby in the new hospital? As chance would have it, there are a number of Island mothers who are expecting any day now.

“We have a lot of mothers who are having second babies due in July; they are expecting they will come early, in June,” Ms. Vanderhoop said. “And we have some mothers who are having their first babies who are due now; they are expecting they will come late. So the last few days of June and first few of days of July should be interesting.”
