Rising to New Heights Construction Project

We built the best with you in mind

Our 174,000 square-foot, four-story patient tower

Every aspect of the new tower was built with our patients in mind. We expanded our emergency department, intensive care unit and observation unit for greater access to care. Once renovations to the entire campus are complete, all of our patient rooms will be fully private, each with an area for family, including a sleeper sofa for overnight stays.

We have done all this and more because we believe that doing what’s best for our patients means always improving upon the ways we provide care.
