Good Samaritan North Health Center will add 46 inpatient beds as part of a multimillion-dollar expansion at the Englewood location that will add 65 jobs over the next five years, Premier Health officials announced today.
Five operating rooms also be built on the ground floor as part of the $40 million construction project.
The health center will start providing elective orthopedic joint and spine services in late 2018 following construction, Premier officials said.
“We are delighted, for the first time, to make inpatient care available closer to home for residents of our community,” said Eloise Broner, president of Good Samaritan Health Center.
Patient rooms will be built in existing shell space on the health center’s second and third floors as part of the construction project.
The health center, which has been open for 22 years, recently underwent a multimillion-dollar expansion in 2015, adding an emergency room.
The $28 million, 96,000-square-foot expansion — including a 22-bed emergency department — opened to the public in late 2015 at 9000 North Main St. in Englewood.
The 22,000-square-foot emergency center was completed first, but the remaining space in the four-story expansion will now have inpatient rooms.
