YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - In what's being hailed as the largest expansion at the Northside Medical Center campus in 15 years, a multi-million dollar tower will break ground next month.

The $20 million investment will expand the emergency department, modernize parts of the existing hospital and create a new main entrance that will allow patients and visitors to access all hospital resources from a central location.

The 30,000 square foot tower and 28,000 square feet of renovations are part of a five-year, $80 million dollar investment commitment into the ValleyCare Health System of Ohio by Community Health Systems.

The emergency room will boast 21 private exam and trauma rooms.

The first floor of the three-story tower will include a lobby for registration, pre-admission testing and waiting rooms.

Outpatient surgery services will be moved to the second floor of the tower with 21 private patient holding rooms. The addition will be adjacent to existing surgery suites creating a single location for surgical services.

A bronchosopy room, two additional endoscopy suites and a new waiting area will be located on the third floor to enhance endoscopy services at the hospital.

To date, $50 million has been invested into the ValleyCare system since the $80 million commitment in 2010 for equipment and building improvements including a continuing transition to private patient rooms and new medical equipment.
