We’re excited to share Mount Sinai Medical Center celebrated the topping out of its new 154-bed surgical tower addition project this past week. The project, which began construction in August 2016 and will complete in Fall 2018, is set to transform Mount Sinai’s main campus in Miami. The 340,000 sf expansion will bring a new surgical tower and emergency department to the main campus and enhance Mount Sinai’s ability to deliver high-quality medical care to patients in its diverse community. Here’s a video from the event.
“There is a great deal of pride we all feel in achieving this milestone. The new tower and emergency department will be a great compliment to the dedication, passion and high quality care our physicians, nurses and allied health professionals deliver to our patients every day,” said Steven D. Sonenreich, President and CEO of Mount Sinai Medical Center.
During the topping out ceremony, the final beam of the facility is hoisted into place, marking the structural completion of the tower. The final beam was signed by over a thousand Mount Sinai employees in the week leading up to the ceremony to symbolize their contributions toward this project.
The new surgical tower will offer an emergency department spanning 35,000 sf across 50 treatment bays that essentially triples the size of Mount Sinai’s current facility to accommodate up to 75,000 annual patient visits. Equipped with 154 private rooms, including larger VIP suites, and 12 large contemporary operating rooms, the new patient tower offers striking views of nearby Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline.
