MOUNTAINVIEW HOSPITAL ADDING TOWER
MountainView Hospital, 3100 N. Tenaya Way, has announced that in addition to its $34 million emergency services expansion, which is currently under way, it plans to build a 60,000-square-foot patient tower above the new emergency room and intensive care unit. The total project will exceed $60 million.
The second floor of the new patient tower will be used for a 32-bed medical/surgical unit, and the third floor will be shelled for future growth. The hospital also plans to renovate its main lobby and cafe. The tower will be built concurrently with the ER/ICU addition and is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
Last summer, MountainView Hospital began construction on its new emergency room and 12-bed intensive care unit. Renovations also were made to the 72-bed medical surgical unit on the fourth floor. The expansion will nearly double the size of the emergency room from 22 to 42 beds and will offer additional amenities such as a dedicated emergency room entrance and a separate ambulance entrance; a Fast Track and new triage area for rapid medical evaluation and initiation of treatment; a helipad near the emergency room; and new equipment including a PET-CT, offering advanced metabolic imaging capabilities to help quickly evaluate chest pain patients.
