Coral Springs Medical Center Set to Expand

To accommodate the growing population in Coral Springs and Parkland, Broward Health Coral Springs is planning to begin construction on an expansion of the medical center in the summer of 2016.

The $56 million project will include a three-story building that will house 28 private post-partum rooms, a neonatal intensive care unit and surgical beds.

The expansion will also increase the hospital's bed capacity from 196 to 250, and include an upgraded central energy plant.

"We have a lot of population growth in the northwest area of the county," Hospital CEO Drew Grossman told the Sun Sentinel. "Coral Springs downtown development is expected to bring in a lot of new people into the area. Parkland is adding about 5,000 homes in the wedge.”

By 2040, the hospital expects an increase of 37 percent in its service area with admission rates projected to increase by 42 percent.

The hospital is currently seeking bids for design and construction of the new building. For more information, visit BrowardHealth.org.
