Methodist Health System plans to add a second patient tower at Methodist Mansfield Medical Center with an eventual capacity of 118 beds as part of a newly approved $118 million expansion.

Approved Jan. 30 by the health system’s board of directors, the funding also will expand support services at the acute care Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. Set to open in fall 2015, the 110,000-square-foot tower will be located at the northwest corner of the medical center’s existing site, 2700 E. Broad St.

The expansion promises 34,000 square feet of additional operating rooms, cardiology and gastroenterology services, and 64,000 square feet of additional support services.

Launched as a community hospital in 2006, Methodist Mansfield has nearly doubled its capacity with multiple expansions in seven years.

The new tower will initially open with 54 beds, with shell space for 64 more. The hospital currently features a women’s pavilion, a level III neonatal intensive care unit, labor and delivery suites, and recovery services. The hospital also offers advanced cardiac care, including minimal invasive catheterization procedures and electrophysiology as well as da Vinci robotic surgical services.
The new facility could add up to 200 new hospital-based jobs within the next five years, hospital officials said.
The architect is RTKL and the construction company is Beck.
