Beaumont Hospital expansion moves forward

February 12, 2018 by  

Construction workers recently “topped off” the new tower at Beaumont Hospital, Farmington Hills, raising the last steel beam to the top.

The project, which is estimated to cost $160m, added new space comprising 193,000 square feet. In addition, renovations will be made to 61,500 square feet of space already in use.

Included in the renovation and expansion of the East Pavilion of the hospital are an observation unit with 17 bays, and an expanded Emergency Room and Level II Trauma Center featuring 58 bays for evaluation and treatment. The new ER includes three rooms dedicated to trauma cases.

The surgical services department has expanded from six to nine operating rooms, and added 27 rooms for private patients, while an infusion center with 10 bays has been added. The family lounge area has been enlarged, and a Critical Care Unit with private rooms and 20 beds has also been included.

A new South Tower will include dedicated respiratory care, oncology, and orthopedic units, as well as a new entrance and reception area serving the entire facility.

A total of 65 existing patient rooms will be converted into private rooms, and 45 semi-private rooms will receive updates. When the project is finished, the hospital will offer a total of 330 beds – 165 private and 165 semi-private.

Projects like this are important to a community, so officials could work with a brochure printing company to create booklets describing the new facility in detail.
