As MountainView Hospital celebrates its 25th year of caring for the community, the hospital announces an expansion of its ER and a new patient tower.
The expansion will include a five-story patient tower and will include additional ER space. A total of 64 patient beds will be added to the hospital’s current 425 beds. As part of the ER expansion, 20 beds/bays will be added, bringing the total number of private ER treatment areas to 60. The expansion will add 65,600 square feet to the hospital.
Additionally, a five-story, 525-space parking garage is planned at the southeast corner, near the hospital’s second medical office building, at 2880 N. Tenaya Way. Construction costs are estimated at $82 million.
“As we enter our 25th year of serving our patients and community, it is only fitting that we continue to meet that demand,” said Julie Taylor, MountainView Hospital Chief Executive Officer. “The continued exponential growth of MountainView reflects on the fact that patients are choosing MountainView to provide them and their loved ones the highest level of care.”
Construction is expected to begin mid-summer, with a build out of about two years.
The latest expansion is one of many in MountainView’s 25-year history. MountainView recently added two more operating rooms, bringing the total number of ORs to 14. The hospital’s second free-standing ER, ER at Skye Canyon, is expected to open mid-summer, 2021.
Most recently MountainView opened its expanded in-patient rehabilitation unit, adding 18 new beds, bringing the total number of rehab beds at the hospital to 54.
In 2018 the hospital finalized the construction of its south tower, adding a new oncology unit, medical-surgical beds and a Level III NICU.
“While we face unprecedented times as we navigate a worldwide pandemic, we remain focused on the future and steadfast in our mission to ensure our community has access to high-quality, compassionate care,” Taylor said.
