Delray Medical Center Unveils New $80M Tower
Delray Medical Center this week will host a ribbon cutting for its new patient tower. The $80 million project has added 96 private patient rooms to the 493-bed hospital, among other features.
The new 120,000-square-foot, four-floor tower has a rooftop helipad and 352 parking spaces. With the newly built structure, the hospital has also expanded services in orthopedics and neurosciences, advanced heart therapies, MRI capabilities, cardiac rehabilitation and other functions.
Private rooms at the new tower at 5352 Linton Blvd. in Delray Beach have 42-inch flat screen TVs, motion-sensor floor lighting and floor-to-ceiling glass windows. They will also come with services such as valet parking.
Its helipad to be placed on the roof will have a dedicated trauma elevator for expedited access to emergency facilities. The hospital says it will result in patients being treated two minutes faster than its current set up.
The ribbon cutting will be held Thursday and the grand opening of the new tower will be July 11.
