Methodist University Hospital $280M expansion underway

Memphis, Tenn.-based Methodist University Hospital broke ground Wednesday on its $280 million master campus plan, according to The Daily News.

Hospital officials said the project includes a 440,000-square-foot tower addition, which will create room to upgrade services within the hospital.

According to Methodist, highlights of the project include: consolidation of all transplant services into a two-floor inpatient/outpatient comprehensive Transplant Institute; combining the West Cancer Center location with hospital-based inpatient and surgical services; consolidating outpatient care in the new tower; and a newly constructed parking plaza.

"Our master campus plan will be a catalyst for transforming healthcare for patients in Memphis, the Mid-South and beyond," Michael Ugwueke, COO and president for Memphis-based Methodist Healthcare, said in a statement. "The new tower will be designed to provide significant improvement in the patient care experience by enhancing flow and efficiency. The centralization of transplant services and the opening a new cancer center will continue to advance our mission of providing high-quality healthcare to all patients."

The project is expected to be completed in 2019.
