As part of its continuing south tower vertical expansion project, MountainView Hospital today opened its new fourth floor Medical-Surgical Unit.

The new, state-of-the-art, 32-bed med-surg unit will continue to care for patients who are recovering from surgery or are acutely ill with a wide variety of medical problems and diseases.

The new unit is part of a larger campus expansion that began in late 2015, with the vertical expansion of the south tower, adding a fourth and fifth floor. The fifth floor 32-bed oncology unit opened in March to care for patients with cancer who have complex patient needs.

The campus construction included an Emergency department expansion that included the addition of a dedicated CT for the emergency room and an expanded helipad to accommodate two helicopters.

A recent first floor expansion included the addition of new neuro diagnostic imaging and intervention technology to treat the most complex neuro/stroke conditions.

Construction also includes the expansion of the Women’s Services unit and the addition of a Level III NICU, expected to be complete late 2018.

“MountainView Hospital strives to looks for opportunities to grow and meet the needs of our patients and community,” said Jeremy Bradshaw, MountainView Chief Executive Officer. “The continual growth of MountainView mirrors the growth in the community, and reflects that patients are choosing MountainView to provide them the highest level of care.”

When construction is complete later this year, the hospital will have 408 beds.
