Hillcrest Hospital, Cleveland, announced a five-year, $163 million expansion that will double the size of its emergency department and add 72 private rooms in a new patient tower. The project also includes new operating rooms, a neonatal intensive-care unit and a renovated obstetrics unit. The 398-bed community hospital is owned by the Cleveland Clinic. In a news release, clinic officials said the plan represents the largest investment the clinic has made in any of its nine community hospitals. This redevelopment project will not only increase patient access to the best healthcare available on Clevelands east side, it will allow our physicians to spend more time with patients and enable our nurses and staff to work in an environment that exemplifies their professional and medical expertise, Fred DeGrandis, president and chief executive officer of Cleveland Clinic Regional Hospitals, said in the news release. -- by Mark Taylor
