St. Agnes Hospital broke ground Tuesday on a $2M, 18-room extended-stay residence, part of a $200M redevelopment of its campus. Healthcare is a growth industry? You don't say.

The Hackerman-Patz House, a 13k SF building delivering in September 2012 will give family members of extended-stay patients a place to stay. St. Agnes Operations VP Bill Greskovich (with spine surgery coordinator Jennie Linantund) tells us the campus redevelopment plan is five years in the making, all financed by hospital cash. The clock he's standing by counts down to the opening of the new South Tower (only two months), a six-story, 120-room building that also has five new outpatient rooms fitted with thelatest in medical technology.

Each room in the South Tower will be same-handed, Bill says, meaning they'll all be oriented the exact same way to help doctors locate supplies. (As opposed to rooms being mirror images of each other. Makes perfect sense when you think of it.) Floors two through five will hold the rooms, with the ORs on the ground floor and ambulatory services on the first floor (that also makes sense). Bill tells us work starts in June on the redevelopment of the 50-year-old North Tower to bring its OR facilities up to modern standards. Delving into his 25 years of healthcare experience, Bill tells us OR sizes have grown significantly in the last decade.

Construction on a new 60k SF medical office building starts inAugust. It'll house the hospital?s Cancer and Cardiovascular Institutes, with market-rate space available for local physicians (delivery is 12-18 months after groundbreaking). Transportationinfrastructure upgrades are an important aspect of the redevelopment, Bill says; the last time the hospital saw significant development was in the ?50s, when people had fewer cars and the number of outpatient visits were low. That's reversed lately, Bill says, so the hospital's starting the approval process with the city on a new 500-space garage.
