With the new five-floor, 260,000-square-foot Pavilion now open to patients at Lakeland Medical Center in St. Joseph, work is currently underway on Phase 2 of the project, which will feature 80,000 feet of renovated space.
New construction began in August to renovate the old operating rooms into an updated prep/recovery area. This is used to prepare patients who are undergoing a procedure and allow them a space to continue their recovery and healing process after surgery. In November, work will begin on the new main street which will renovate the hospital’s current front entrance and feature a two-story design with multiple visitor amenities including dining options, quiet spaces, and retail.
The final phases of the project include renovations that will provide a 23-hour short stay unit for patients who need additional observation, but don’t need to be admitted to the hospital overnight. The emergency department will also undergo several changes to the ambulance bays as well as the entrance and triage stations to better connect with the rest of the hospital and provide an enhanced wayfinding experience for patients.
