As part of its south tower vertical expansion project, MountainView Hospital today opened its new 5th floor Oncology Unit.
The new, state-of-the-art, 32-bed oncology unit will continue to care for patients with complex cancer care needs. The opening of the new floor brings MountainView’s bed count to 370.
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 4th and 5th floor. The expansion included an Emergency department expansion, adding a dedicated CT for the emergency room and the recent completion of an expanded helipad to accommodate two helicopters.
A first floor expansion, also opening soon, includes the addition of new neuro diagnostic imaging and intervention technology to treat the most complex neuro/stroke conditions.
The south tower’s 4th floor is expected to open at the end of May 2018, and will serve additional medical/surgical patients with a new 32 bed unit. The movement of the oncology unit to the new 5th floor south tower also frees up existing beds in the central tower to accommodate additional medical/surgical patients.
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 continues to grow and expand to meet the needs of our patients and community,” said Jeremy Bradshaw, MountainView Chief Executive Officer. “The exponential 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. Total expansion costs total $70 million.
