The Facility Master Plan for this 720,000 SF flagship hospital of the Provena system resulted in the recommendation of a 259,000 SF addition and the renovation of 213,000 SF of existing space.

This comprehensive Master Plan included data gathering and planning for 52 hospital departments. The goal for this undertaking was to identify the needs for the next five years, and evaluate the institution's culture of healing and technology in an effort to improve the delivery of care.

The proposed addition includes 150 private medical surgical beds, 48 intensive care beds, entry lobby, auditorium, expanded dining, women's health center, resource library, expansion of diagnostic and testing, and a new patient care center.

The renovation includes the expansion and consolidation of cardiac services, expansion of emergency services, and relocation of endoscopy, neurology, and several administrative departments.
