The building project would replace the hospital’s surgical and endoscopy suites and add 44 new private patient rooms for post-surgery care. The 150,000-square-foot expansion will include space for 10 state-of-the-art operating rooms for inpatient and outpatient surgeries.
“As we carefully plan the design, the team has been considering all aspects of growth and technology, while paying close attention to the comfort and privacy needs of our patients and their families,” EGH orthopedic surgeon Leonard Kibiloski said in a news release.
Construction is slated to begin this fall with completion expected by the end of 2015.
