The new hospital will also have a 32-bay infusion center an expanded emergency department, inpatient pharmacies, 50-postpartum rooms and an 18-bay special care nursery.
“Health care needs are evolving and we are proud to participate in the building of a hospital facility that will benefit the community,” said Ken Jones, Turner vice president and general manager.
The new Sibley will also have space for a new central chiller plant and consolidated emergency generators.
A new stair, elevator and circulation ramp will be added to an existing parking garage.
