Novant Health says it plans to invest $222 million to develop a critical care tower on the Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center campus to improve access to care for patients in Winston-Salem and the surrounding area.
Construction of a critical care tower is phase 2 of Novant Health’s $400 million capital investment at Forsyth Medical Center. Phase 1, currently underway, focuses on sustainability infrastructure, the renovation of patient rooms and the enhancement of the women’s and children’s center. The tower will be built on the current site of Forsyth Medical Center’s Rehabilitation Center, which will be torn down.
The tower will include 60 critical care and 36 intermediate beds along with an enhanced surgical suite and collocated supportive services. The larger patient rooms provide additional privacy and flexibility, including conversion to intensive care or isolation rooms.
