Grandview Expansion

Apr 23, 2024 at 10:47 am by kbarrettalley

Grandview Medical Center is beginning a project to expand its Emergency Department. Emergency department visits have nearly doubled since the hospital’s opening to more than 44,000 visits in 2023.

The expansion project will add 3,600-square feet and 10 additional treatment rooms, bringing the total number to 32. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Grandview is also planning an inpatient bed expansion project. The proposed project, currently in the regulatory approval process, includes an expansion of Grandview’s Women’s Center, the relocation of inpatient rehabilitation to a connected building on campus, and the renovation of space within the hospital to accommodate additional acute care beds.

The proposed inpatient bed expansion project will occur in two phases. The first phase will add postpartum beds to the hospital’s obstetrics unit. Newborn deliveries at the hospital have tripled since 2016 with more than 3,000 births last year. The second phase will add 25 acute care beds on the 10th floor after that space is vacated by the relocation of the hospital’s 17-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit to Grandview Physicians Plaza II, a 140,000-square foot building that opened on the Grandview campus in 2023 and is expected to be fully-occupied by the end of 2025.

After regulatory approvals are received, the bed expansion project is expected to be completed in approximately one year.
