The Indu & Raj Soin Medical Center in Beavercreek will undergo an $8.2 million expansion of its emergency department.
A spokesperson tells me the hospital plans to build a two-story, 22,000-square-foot addition to the northern end of its emergency department. The project will add 12 exam rooms, a nursing station and supply areas. The hospital’s emergency department currently has 14 exam rooms.
The project will provide more emergency access for customers of the medical center. It also will benefit area construction firms and contractors.
An expansion of the emergency department was posited when the hospital was initially constructed in 2009. However the hospital, which is owned by Kettering Health Network, has grown faster than expected, requiring the expansion several years ahead of schedule, the spokesperson said.
Chicago-based HOK is the architect and Danis Building Construction Co. is the contractor. The project must go through planning commission in Beavercreek and is expected to break ground in the summer.
