USA Health has received an approval from the Alabama Certificate of Need Review Board for renovation at University Hospital in Mobile.

The $15m renovation project will include addition of more than 60 beds at the facility.

The 10th and 11th floors of the hospital will be renovated to include advanced surgical and care patient suites on each floor, reported

Once redeveloped, each floor will comprise two isolation rooms, four patient rooms with associated nursing stations and common areas.

Work on the project is scheduled to commence this year and conclude next year.

“The completion of this project makes a total of 111 the number of new beds we have put into operation since October of 2017, creating enhanced access to the services we provide that are so critically needed by our community.”

Earlier this month, an expanded gastroenterology lab opened at the hospital.

Furthermore, the hospital’s Level 1 trauma centre, the Fanny Meisler Trauma Center, is undergoing an expansion programme and will open this autumn.

USA Health CEO Owen Bailey was quoted as saying: “As the region’s only Level I Trauma Center and home to the only regional burn unit and the area’s first comprehensive stroke centre, it is so important that we have capacity to meet the growing needs of our community.

“These additional beds will ensure our capacity to provide our unique services to the people who come to us for care, even during public health emergencies like the Covid-19 pandemic.
