Franciscan Health Mooresville has released plans for a major expansion. The plans include a new $17 million medical building and interior and exterior improvements to the existing hospital campus.
Phase 1 of the project will focus on the hospital campus at 1201 Hadley Road. Work for the first phase began Monday and is slated for completion in December.
Phase 2 of the project will follow the demolition of the Women Center’s lobby and construction of a new 50,000-square-foot medical office building. The $17 million complex will house the Women’s Center and additional medical practices. Phase 2 is expected to be completed in late 2020.
“Patients, guests and vendors will primarily be affected as they make their way to medical practices in the Professional Center and the entrance to the Women’s Center at the south end of the hospital complex. Temporary closures to some parking areas will occur, but there will be directional signs to help get everyone where they need to be for their care,” said Peter Murphy, chief operating officer for Franciscan Health Mooresville, in a news release. “While we know this will be somewhat of an inconvenience, this work is a necessary investment for future expansion at our campus.”
