Edward Hospital revealed a 63.7 million dollar west wing addition, which includes a new Orthopedic and Spine Center that holds 36 private patient rooms, a rehab gym, and devoted rehab and nursing teams.
It also includes an Intensive Care Unit with 24 rooms and state of the art monitoring equipment and computers.
“We couldn’t have got this unit built, we could not have created these beautiful units without the help of so many people and I think it’s been a team effort, an Edward team effort of many departments,’’ said Jean Rader, director of CCU and Ortho Spine.
The new wing will help serve more patients with the addition of 43 new beds.
The two-floor expansion will be open to patients starting July 8.
