Chandler Regional Medical Center has announced it will soon start construction on two major expansion projects, adding a new patient tower and expanding its existing cardiac catheterization laboratories.

 The projects will cost a combined $135 million and will add more than 200 jobs to the hospital staff. 

The $9.9 million cardiac catheterization laboratory expansion will be the first of the two projects, beginning construction later this year with expected completion in July 2011. The expanded lab will created 14 "highly technical" jobs with an estimated payroll of $1.6 million per year, hospital officials said. During the construction phase, an additional 80 construction-related jobs also will be created.

 The expanded cardiac catheterization laboratory will be housed in a two-story addition to the southwest corner of the hospital, officials said. 

 “In order to meet increasing patient demand, we also are planning a five-story inpatient tower that will help to remove capacity constraints and expand key service lines,” said said Patty White, president and CEO of Chandler Regional Medical Center.

 The $125 million patient tower is scheduled to begin construction in the early part of 2011 with anticipated completion in July 2012. The new tower will require an additional 180 to 200 employees whose salary is estimated to total $22 million each year. During construction it is estimated that the project will add an additional 1,050 jobs.

 The five-story tower will add 100 beds, expanding the capacity of emergency services and the medical-surgical unit. It also will add 30 intensive-care rooms, six additional operating suites, and ancillary support infrastructure, including the addition of a chapel, according to hospital officials.
