Phase one is the Center for Advanced Care, integrating cancer care, digestive health services and ambulatory surgery into a single location, improving patient-physician continuity while enhancing efficiencies and the overall patient experience. The cancer program is doubled in size and consolidates multispecialty infusion, radiology and surgical oncology into a healing center of care. Six new outpatient ORs, with six additional planned for the future, directly connect to the existing inpatient surgery suite. The addition creates an integrated platform where patients can easily access care, including an innovative condominium clinic, with flexible exam and consult spaces.
The second phase is planned as a new, 260,000-square-foot acute-care tower for 180 medical/surgical beds, 40 ICU rooms, and consolidated maternity and NICU services.
