Construction Commencing at Gilbert Hospital's New Intensive Care Unit

GILBERT, Ariz., April 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Gilbert Hospital is expanding their services again. Construction is set to begin this week on a three-bed intensive care unit located at the north end of the existing building. The new ICU is in the area previously occupied by hospital inpatient beds. Those inpatient beds were relocated this past December upon the opening of a new 8,500 square foot inpatient expansion.

"This simply adds to the list of services Gilbert Hospital has to offer," stated Dr. Tim A. Johns, Gilbert Hospital's founder and medical director. "The more we grow in tandem with the needs of the people we serve, the better off everyone is," continued Johns.

The ICU construction is expected to be complete before the end of spring. "The general public probably won't see anything related to the ICU construction until it's complete as we are committed to ensuring there is no disruption in our current service to patients," claimed David S. Wanger, CEO of Gilbert Hospital. "We are working closely with everyone involved to ensure that our patients receive the same level of respect and care they have come to expect," said Wanger.

Additional qualified staff and superior equipment needed to create a fully functional ICU are being added as construction continues. In its continuing growth, Gilbert Hospital is also preparing to break ground on the much anticipated inpatient tower with 84 beds and 150,000 square feet of additional space. This ground breaking is expected before the end of spring.
