Ashley Regional Medical Center (ARMC) recently broke ground on a $35 million expansion and renovation project. The project will introduce a three-story, 30,000 square foot tower that will house a new medical office building for physicians, as well as a brand new Women’s Center and new intensive care unit (ICU).
A focal point of the expansion project, the new Women’s Center will support the growing needs of the community and offer digital mammography, a new C-section room, and new labor and postpartum rooms. Additionally, the Women’s Center will feature a separate entrance, modern furniture and décor, and expanded space, all of which will improve the overall experience for patients and families in the region.
The project will include a brand new, state-of-the-art intensive care unit (ICU), as well as a fully renovated medical-surgical unit. The hospital’s physical therapy and infusion therapy units will receive new space and upgrades, while lab services, the pharmacy and pre-operation areas will receive significant renovations. The hospital will also feature all-private patient beds, and visitors will benefit from a significant increase in parking availability once the project is complete.
The plans were developed by Ascension Architects, and construction will be led by Big D Construction out of Salt Lake City. The project is supported by LifePoint Health, who has invested more than $72 million in capital improvement projects at ARMC since 2001.
