Baptist Hospital Finishes Transformation

Baptist Hospital’s $35 million Campus Transformation

PENSACOLA, Fla. (March 6, 2012) – Less than two years ago, Baptist Hospital, the flagship facility for Baptist Health Care, announced a vision that would transform its campus into one of the most aesthetically and technologically advanced medical facilities in the region. This month, that vision came to fruition and exceeded even the greatest expectations with the completion of its $35 million project, one of the largest in Baptist Health Care’s 60-year history.

Patients and visitors are now welcomed by the campus’s new main entrance on Moreno Street and an expansive two-story addition providing convenient access to the hospital, family areas and the Baptist Bistro. The operating rooms have been expanded and updated to support the growing number of innovative surgical services offered at Baptist Hospital: oncology, heart and vascular, orthopaedics, general surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, neurology, and a wide range of general surgical services.

Project Features Include:
• New Main Entrance
• Two-Story Main Lobby
• New Family Waiting Areas
• Baptist Hospital Pharmacy
• 42 bed all private room pre and post procedural unit
• Operating Room Expansion including six New Digital Operating Rooms
• Progressive Care Unit
• Outpatient Surgery
• New Public and Patient Restrooms
• Baptist Bistro, indoor and outdoor dining areas
• Parking, landscape and green space
• Updated public hallways, corridors and department entries

The new entrance to Baptist Hospital serves as the “gateway” to a better Baptist. “We are proud to make this investment for our campus and the community,” says David Wildebrandt, administrator, Baptist Hospital. “Patients are at the center of all that we do. The new facility design places our patients first by ensuring easy access and comfort.”

Baptist Hospital’s construction project embodies Baptist Health Care’s commitment to consistently improve health care in the region. The modern design and amenities complement the hospital’s long-standing heritage of being the community’s only locally owned hospital.
