Here We Grow…
Lakewood Ranch Medical Center’s $28.5 million expansion project is well underway! Local officials, dignitaries, physicians and hospital and community leaders kicked off the multi-phased construction project with a momentous groundbreaking. The expansion project will accommodate our growing community’s needs and add capacity for future growth.
Plans include adding new space and redesigning existing space to provide:
- Two new operating rooms
- Shell space for two more operating rooms
- An additional heart catheterization lab
- A new advanced MRI system
- An additional technologically-advanced CT scanner
- An expanded and enhanced surgical waiting area, preoperative space and post-surgical space
- A new location for the Breast Health Center
- New administrative office space
The first phase of construction has provided new office space for hospital administrative support services, freeing up space in the middle of the first floor of the hospital to build many of the new features listed above. In early October 2018, the Breast Health Center relocated from inside the hospital to Medical Arts Building One on the Lakewood Ranch Medical Center campus to create needed space for expansion efforts within the hospital walls. Construction is occurring both on the inside as well as the outside of the hospital, however great measures are being taken to continue to provide the community with the very best service and care during this time of expansion.
In addition to our expansion, improvements to the exterior of the hospital are also underway, including the repainting of the Medical Center, improved Medical Center Campus irrigation systems and enhanced landscaping, as well as a parking lot refresh. We apologize for any inconvenience as we work to improve areas of the hospital to better serve our patients.
