US-based Botsford Hospital has unveiled an expansion project involving an investment of $160m.
Botsford, which is part of Beaumont Health, is located in Farmington Hills of Michigan.
Botsford Hospital said the project is being undertaken to create new space and renovate existing space, to increase the facility’s ability to offer coordinated, personal and compassionate care.
The hospital filed a certificate of need with the state of Michigan for the project, expected to commence in late summer 2015.
Botsford Hospital president Paul LaCasse said: "As advances are made in medical technology and the needs of our patients grow, our hospital must build to meet patient needs for the immediate and long-term future.
"With this expansion, patients and their families will benefit from the most innovative and advanced medical technologies in a safe and welcoming environment designed for patient-centred care."
The expansion project includes the construction of a new critical care unit and creation of an observation unit, as well as expansion of the hospital’s emergency and trauma centre.
Botsford’s expansion will comprise of a five-storey and 80-bed tower, increasing the total number of private patient rooms to 160 with an additional 24 private ICU beds.
In addition, the project includes modernisation of surgical services with nine new operating rooms.
Beaumont Health president Gene Michalski said: "Coming together as Beaumont Health will help with facility and technology improvements. As a larger organisation, we can better fund projects benefitting those who receive and deliver care at Beaumont Health."
