Salem Hospital cuts expansion plans by $33M

Salem (Mass.) Hospital plans to limit its proposed $240 million expansion by $33 million due to financial losses from its partner company Boston-based Partners HealthCare, reports Gloucester Times.

The decision will cut 30 psychiatry beds and 10 medical and surgical inpatient beds from the planned three-story building. The building will be left as a "shell" that could be filled at a later date. A proposed main entrance and lobby will also be eliminated from the project, among other things.    

Construction, first slated for this fall, will be postponed until next spring. Completion is set for fall 2019, according to the report.
