Kendall Regional Medical Center is committed to the care and improvement of human life. As part of this commitment, the award-winning hospital is increasing care capabilities with a $120 million investment in the community. This will include a new Trauma/ICU floor, Women and Children’s floor, two-story addition with 77 private rooms and a new parking garage.
The hospital had previously announced its expansion project but has now broken ground on its nine-story parking garage. The garage is expected to offer hospital patients, visitors, and staff 765 additional parking spaces.
Earlier this year, Kendall Regional Medical Center opened Doral’s first-ever emergency room. Patients requiring advanced care are transported directly from the ER to Kendall Regional, where they bypass the on-site ER and are able to go directly to a room. The growth of Doral, Kendall, and surrounding areas increases the demand for healthcare in the community, and Kendall Regional’s expansion aims to meet this demand.
Kendall Regional Medical Center’s parking garage and two-floor expansion is expected to be completed in April 2020. The hospital is also expected to open a Medical Office Building in Doral to accompany its Doral Emergency Room in 2021.
