Summerlin Hospital will undergo a $16 million capital improvement project to expand and renovate multiple areas within the 454-bed acute care hospital.
The key elements include adding a new 36 medical-surgical beds, which will increase the licensed capacity to 490 beds, and expanding the Birthplace at Summerlin Hospital by adding an operating suite, expanding the maternal triage area and increasing the newborn nursery capacity. Additionally, the Children’s Medical Center pediatric unit will undergo renovations.
The hospital’s last major expansion, a six-story patient tower, was completed in 2009, adding more rooms for the women’s services, a level III neonatal intensive care unit and specialized nursing units for critical care, post-surgical recovery and medical needs. The hospital recently added another 48 parking spaces.
