Broward Health Coral Springs hosted the official ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of its new four-story patient tower, following a two-year, $65 million expansion- the largest healthcare expansion in the history of Coral Springs. Broward Health leadership welcomed local elected officials, community leaders and supporters for a tour of the new construction.
Visitors, including Senator Lauren Book and Representative Jared Moskowitz, were greeted by Broward Health leadership in the renovated main lobby of the hospital to learn about the advances featured in the construction.
“As Broward County’s population continues to grow, we are committed to meeting the ever increasing needs of our community by providing greater access to care and an enhanced patient experience for generations to come,” said North Broward Hospital District Board of Commissioners Chairman Andrew Klein.
Designed to create an environment that enhances the patient experience, the expansion increased the number of hospital beds from 200 to 250 and enlarged the surgical program, including the use of minimally-invasive robotic procedures.
“This tower is a statement of innovation, taking into account the latest and greatest technology, design and patient care,” said Jared Smith, Broward Health Coral Springs CEO.
Guided tours took visitors around the tower, including the expanded Maternity Place with all-private labor & delivery rooms, a dedicated triage and recovery area, and three new large operating rooms. The second floor hosts the Advanced Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the Salah Foundation Children’s Hospital with all-private rooms. Surgical suites are housed on the third floor, for key specialties such as general surgery, gynecology, oncology, urology, and more.
“The opening of this beautifully designed, state-of-the-art tower signifies Broward Health’s mission of providing high-quality care to the community,” said Beverly Capasso, Broward Health President and CEO. “This has been our commitment for the past 80 years, and we renew it every day.”
The new patient tower will open to the public in early September. Community tours are being scheduled by appointment on selected dates through the end of August. To schedule a tour, please visit browardhealth.org/events.
