Pavilion Move a Success

Treatment RoomThe Lakeland Medical Center Pavilion has always been a mission-critical project, even more so in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in our community. Contractors and staff worked around the clock to open the five-floor, 260,000-square-foot Pavilion three weeks early, allowing Lakeland team members to move into the new space and begin providing care in mid-March.

The Pavilion features several state-of-the-art clinical spaces, including the Hanson Heart Center, a 12-suite operating room, pulmonary and cardiac rehabilitation, post-surgical unit, and surgery pre-planning, among others. The new intensive care unit (ICU) increased from 7,000 square feet to 26,000 square feet in size and added 18 beds. It also allows for the hospital to function with two intensive care units if needed, as the old ICU remains open in anticipation of a potential COVID-19 patient surge.

“The Pavilion was critical in our response to COVID-19 within our community,” said Loren B. Hamel, MD, president, Spectrum Health Lakeland. “Not only were we able to isolate and care for our sickest patients, the new operating room also allowed us to safely resume surgeries and continue to care for our friends and neighbors.” For the latest updates on the project, visit
