Kendall Regional Medical Center (KRMC) is committed to the care and improvement of human life. As such, the award-winning hospital is increasing care capabilities with a $120 million investment in the community. This will include a new Trauma/ICU floor, Women and Children’s floor, a two-story addition with 77 private rooms, and a new parking garage.
The hospital had previously announced its expansion project, but has now broken ground on its nine-story parking garage. The garage is expected to offer hospital patients, visitors and staff 765 additional parking spaces.
Earlier this year, KRMC opened Doral’s first-ever emergency room. Patients requiring advanced care are transported directly from the ER to Kendall Regional, where they bypass the on-site ER and are able to go directly to a room. The growth of Doral, Kendall and surrounding areas increases the demand for healthcare in the community, and Kendall Regional’s expansion aims to meet this demand.
KRMC’s parking garage and two-floor expansion is set to be completed in April 2020. The hospital is also expected to open a Medical Office Building in Doral to accompany its Doral Emergency Room in 2021.
Kendall Regional Medical Center, an award-winning 417-bed hospital, is recognized for providing a wide array of services to the residents of South Florida, as well as visitors from around the world. KRMC offers 24-hour comprehensive medical, surgical and diagnostic services, including trauma and burn care, pediatrics and maternity services, an orthopedic and spine institute, along with patient and community services.
For over 45 years, KRMC has been committed to expanding and improving every facet of the organization. Today, the hospital has grown into a major tertiary-care teaching facility, with more than 1,000 physicians and specialists and 1,800 employees.
