BayCare Health System to receive $308M makeover

Clearwater, Fla.-based BayCare Health System will invest $308 million to expand three of its existing hospitals, according to The Tampa Bay Times.

Over the next three years, the health system will expand St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa, Fla.; St. Joseph's Hospital-North in Lutz, Fla.; and St. Joseph's Hospital-South in Riverview, Fla.

The plan for St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa includes a $126 million, six story hospital tower. St. Joseph's Hospital South's project, expected to cost $112 million,  will add a five-story building with an expanded emergency department, operating room and catheterization lab. In addition, the expanded building will house a neonatal intensive care unit and a pediatric service unit.

At St. Joseph's Hospital-North all patient rooms will be upgraded to private rooms, and operating rooms and support areas will be expanded to increase capacity. This is expected to cost $70 million.

All three construction projects are expected to be completed between 2019 and 2020.
