Fishermen’s Hospital will build new facility

February 12, 2018

Baptist Health South Florida plans to build a new facility for Fishermen’s Hospital, badly damaged by Hurricane Irma, according to an article on the Keys Weekly website.

Construction of the $40 million facility is anticipated to begin during the first half of 2019. In the meantime, The hospital will operate a modular facility.

Sixteen days after the storm passed, Fishermen’s Hospital opened with a field hospital, a “M.A.S.H.” unit, in the parking lot of its facility. 

On Dec. 15, the hospital approached the Monroe County Board of Commissioners about space at the Marathon airport to erect a modular hospital, a transition step during construction of the new facility. 

But Baptist Health has decided to put the modular hospital on the southwest corner of the hospital parking lot, nearest the library. Once it’s up and running, the field hospital will be dismantled.
