Lakewood Ranch Medical Center will add a new $120 million, five-story, 60-bed patient tower to its Lakewood Ranch campus in Florida. The acute-care hospital currently has 120 beds and provides a full array of medical services.
Construction of the new 170,000-square-foot tower is Phase 1 of a multi-phase plan for facility expansion scheduled to take place during the next several years. The first phase will add 60 patient beds and include expansion of key ancillary departments. The tower will include shell space for an additional 60 patient beds, the ability to add two more floors and expansion of other areas as the hospital continues to grow its services. The addition of patient beds and services will add about 100 new jobs.
Pre-construction work on the 60-bed patient tower is slated to begin in 2023, and the first phase of the project is expected to be completed in 2025.
