The two-story expansion of our Critical Care Pavilion was the first construction in our planned multi-year transformation. The addition of 85 state-of-the-art ICU rooms and a Special Disease Care Unit, 100,000 square feet in all, was built above our Emergency Department. Finished in July 2016, the $82 million project was completed on time and under budget. That’s the way we like to do business!
From now through 2023, we’ll be building new, tearing down old and building new again so we ultimately have facilities that match our technology and expertise. It’s what you, our community, deserve.
A new parking garage will be completed in 2018, followed by a central utility plant, other support buildings and a 12-story hospital to replace the current one. The new hospital will back up to the southern part of our campus. This will make room for a large grassy area planned as a neighborhood recreation and gathering spot. And we’re helping revitalize the West 25th Street corridor, too.
Throughout the entire process, we’re committed to a diverse workforce with many local and minority-owned businesses. At the same time, we’ll continue growing the number of our locations across Cuyahoga County so everyone will be close to great MetroHealth care. All this progress is estimated to support 5,618 jobs and result in $873.3 million in economic benefit for the county.
