Mount Carmel announces plans to invest more than $700 million in its people-centered care strategy in central Ohio.
This investment will Expand, Modernize & Revitalize Three Campuses: Mount Carmel East, Mount Carmel Grove City and Mount Carmel West.
Mount Carmel East will begin a $310 million modernization project in spring 2015 to be completed in phases through 2019,according to the health system. The project will also include the construction of a new five-story patient care tower with a new state-of-the-art surgical suite and 128 new all-private, acuity adaptable patient rooms as well as the complete renovation of the original 1969 bed tower to provide 112 all-private patient rooms.
A $355 million investment in Mount Carmel Grove City will expand the one-year old facility to a full-service hospital by 2018. In doing so, Mount Carmel Grove City will be the first hospital in the market south of the Interstate 70 corridor and will greatly expand access to care for a rapidly growing part of central Ohio. This project will include an approximately 500,000 sq. ft. inpatient hospital and 120,000 sq. ft. Medical Office Building (MOB). The new hospital will feature 210 private rooms and seven floors of clinical service, including inpatient and outpatient surgery, intensive care, a mother- infant unit, oncology and palliative care and expanded emergency services.
After construction is completed in Grove City, Mount Carmel West's inpatient operations will transfer to Grove City and the West campus will undergo a $46 million transformation. The existing nearly 130-year old Mount Carmel West campus in Franklinton will be transformed into a health and educational campus. The hospital will focus on primary care, urgent and emergent care and will include a 24-hour emergency department. The transformation will expand on the efforts of the Mount Carmel Community Health Resource Center (CHRC).
