Piedmont Henry Hospital received approval from the Piedmont Board of Directors for a $215 million expansion that will transform the hospital’s campus and help care for the citizens of a rapidly growing community.
The project will add a new patient tower and will have 95 new/additional inpatient rooms. The hospital’s new bed license is for 355 beds. Additional surface parking will be added, as well as three additional Operating Room suites, giving the hospital a total of 14. The expansion of the OR will provide more access with shorter wait times for high-end surgical procedures. The extra patient rooms will also help improve wait times in the emergency department, which is one of the busiest in the Piedmont system, with nearly 75,000 visits annually.
During construction, there are no expected impacts to patient or visitor access at either the North or South Tower lobbies, or the emergency department. There may be some limited disruption to parking. Patients will be asked to arrive a few minutes early for scheduled appointments once construction begins.
Construction is expected to start in early 2024 and be completed within two and a half years.
