Expansion

In keeping with our commitment to improve the health of the community, Mease Countryside Hospital is responding to the area’s growth with a major expansion and renovation plan. Designed to create continuous platforms of care that support clinical excellence, our goal is to improve patient-centered care and the family experience as well as increase private patient rooms.

The major expansion includes a new 4-story tower and a parking garage. This expansion cost will total $156 million.

March 19, 2018—Construction Begins on Parking Garage

We are beginning construction of the first stage, a four-story parking garage with an elevated pedestrian walkway across Mease Drive. When complete at the end of 2018, the parking garage will provide 950 parking spaces for guests and staff. It will feature electronic vehicle charging stations.

New Tower

In November 2018, the second stage of the expansion will begin – with a four-story patient tower, increasing the number of private hospital rooms from 31 percent to 82 percent. The new tower will include:

  • 70 private patient rooms
  • 30-bed observation unit adjacent to the Emergency Room
  • Critical care services combined into one cohesive unit with eight additional progressive care facilities
  • Women’s care increasing number of patient rooms and more Level II Neonatal Intensive Care beds
  • Inpatient and outpatient surgical services aligned into one space
  • Expanded inpatient pharmacy
  • New outpatient chemotherapy and infusion services
  • New endoscopy unit

Patient and visitor comfort is also part of the design with an outdoor courtyard with dining and seating areas, a children’s play space and a water feature offering visitors with a relaxing area that incorporates natural elements.
