Broward Health Expands Women’s and Pediatric Services Across Broward County

Broward Health is set to expand services for South Florida’s women and children this year with two capital improvement projects nearing completion at Broward Health Coral Springs and Salah Foundation Children’s Hospital.

At Broward Health Coral Springs, renovations will be completed in August 2018 on a $64 million expansion project that will offer four floors of healthcare services to provide greater access to quality, patient-centered care for western Broward County’s growing population. The 110,000-square-foot expansion includes labor and delivery, as well as C-section rooms for expectant mothers on the tower’s first floor, 28 private mother/baby post-partum rooms and a new 10-bed NICU on the second floor, 28 private medical/surgical­­­­ beds on the third floor and shell space for future clinical services on the fourth floor. The tower will increase Broward Health Coral Springs’ bed capacity from 200 to 250.
The Salah Foundation Children’s Hospital at Broward Health Medical Center is nearing the final stages of a $52 million expansion project, with plans to separate the current 70-bed NICU into two separate floors. The Level II NICU, which will feature 36 private rooms, is expected to be completed in October 2018. Once the Level II NICU is completed, the Level III NICU will be renovated and feature 34 beds in an open ward, with an expected completion date of approximately June 2019. The expansion is partially funded by a $317 million tax-exempt bond offering that the North Broward Hospital District successfully sold in November.
