The Larkin Community Hospital Palm Springs Campus in Hialeah could expand with a new medical office building.
The City Council will consider several variances for the project on the 14.4-acre site at 1475 West 49th Place on Oct. 24. It currently has a three-story 247-bed hospital that was built in 1964, along with a seven-story, 38,000-square-foot medical office building.
South Miami-based Larkin Community Hospital, led by CEO Dr. Jack Michel, acquired the former Palm Springs General Hospital property in 2016.
In the proposal, the hospital aims to build another seven-story medical office building totaling 161,300 square feet. It’s seeking waivers to build seven stories, instead of the three stories permitted, and provide 725 parking spaces, instead of the 768 normally required for a project of that size.
