Aventura Hospital and Medical Center has initiated a $10 million dollar capital expenditure project that will add a 10th floor to the hospital’s North Tower, significantly enhancing the facility’s orthopedic, spinal and general / medical surgery service line. Construction will commence in early 2011, and completion of the project is anticipated for the fourth quarter of next year.
“We are committed to providing excellent healthcare for our growing community and have been diligently working toward making this expansion a reality for our patients and physicians,” said CEO Heather J. Rohan. “We have a robust surgical neurology and orthopedic program and are confident that this expansion will serve to further enhance the care of our patients.”
The expansion project will add 42 private rooms in more than 30,000 square feet of customized, post-operative patient care space. The unit will also be equipped with special features designed to enhance the surgical patients’ experience and recovery process, such as a dedicated, state-of-the-art rehabilitation gymnasium and a patient dining area designed to promote post-operative mobility, a fast recovery and socialization amongst patients and family members.
Aventura Hospital is a 407-bed acute care medical / surgical facility, providing awardwinning inpatient and outpatient diagnostic, medical, surgical and cancer services to the communities of northeast Miami-Dade and southeast Broward counties since 1965. Staffed by more than 800 physicians representing 56 specialties and 1,100 healthcare professionals, the hospital meets the healthcare needs of its neighboring communities through continuous program enhancement and service excellence.
