Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital to Add Operating Rooms

Construction on three new operating rooms has begun at the hospital.



Published:

WEST BLOOMFIELD – In response to rapid growth in its surgical services, Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital has begun construction on three more operating rooms.

In less than three years, since opening in March 2009, more than 23,000 surgeries have been performed at the hospital.

“We have continued to see growing demand for surgical services,” says Mary Vidaurri, R.N., Ph.D., COO at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital.  “With more surgeons requesting dedicated time, as well as the need to have available surgical suites every day for emergencies, it is necessary to expand surgical capacity.”

The hospital has 10 state-of-the-art operating rooms that opened in 2009. Henry Ford has obtained Certificate of Need approval to build three more operating rooms, which will bring the total to 13.

The new surgical suites will be located on the second floor, above the Vita Wellness Center, as well as the Live Well Shoppe and other retail spaces.  The 9,600-square-foot area is currently vacant and was planned for future expansion.

All construction will occur inside the building, with no major changes to the exterior.

The project is expected to be completed by June 2013.
