US-based Olathe Medical Centre (OMC) has announced a $100m expansion project in Kansas, in a bid to better cater to its service area needs.
Expansion will include construction of four new centres across its 250-acre campus.
The centres include an obstetrics wing with a Level II neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), a free-standing cancer centre, a memory care neighbourhood at Cedar Lake Village, and an expanded cardiovascular centre.
The projects will cover an area of 200,000ft² and is expected to create 200 new jobs. Construction is slated to start this year.
Olathe Medical Centre president Frank Devocelle said in a statement: "We are focused on expanding services to meet our service area needs with emphasis on maintaining a high level of quality care and customer service."
NICU construction is expected to start in April, and will include a four-storey building with 105,000ft² obstetrics. It will also comprise private suite-like rooms with whirlpool tubs and queen-size beds.
The cancer centre construction is expected to begin in July, and will include a 25,000ft² facility. It will include a radiation therapy suite, chemotherapy infusion suite, a patient and family resource library, appearance centre and a boutique.
A memory care assisted living neighborhood construction at Cedar Lake Village will begin in December 2015.
It will include 29,000ft² for private apartments, and is a partnership facility shared between OMC and the Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society.
Construction of the Kansas Cardiovascular Centre (KCC) expansion project will commence in April, and will support an increasing offering of complex procedures performed in cardiac catheterisation labs.
