US-based non-profit health system AdventHealth has published a $220m plan to expand the capacity of its hospital in Daytona Beach, Florida.

The company aims to add 104 more beds along with four new surgical suites to the Daytona Beach hospital, as well as expand the site area by 240,000ft² to almost one million square feet.

The construction work will mainly include adding floors to the hospital’s two existing towers.

One of the hospital towers will undergo a four-storey vertical expansion, while the second tower will receive one extra storey.

The expansion effort will also involve adding progressive care and intensive care beds, comprising a separate neuro intensive care unit (ICU) and a cardiovascular intensive care unit (CV-ICU).

It will include a new and expanded pharmacy, an enlarged sterile processing unit, a new laboratory space and enhanced imaging modalities services, such as more CT and MRI services.

HuntonBrady Architects has been selected for the project, which is due to begin later this year and be finished in 2026.

Once the expansion effort is completed, the total number of inpatient beds at the Daytona Beach hospital will increase from 362 to 466, while the number of surgical suites will rise from 18 to 22.

AdventHealth East Florida vice-president and CEO Audrey Gregory said: “As an organisation, AdventHealth has a deep commitment to growing with our communities and this major expansion at our Daytona Beach hospital will increase the community’s access to world-class, patient-centred care.

“Now, as we embark on this new expansion project, patients will soon have even greater access to high-quality care close to home.”

Last month, AdventHealth announced plans to submit a certificate of need application to add 26 more acute care beds to the community hospital it is building in Buncombe County, North Carolina.
