JPS Patient Care Pavilion Expands

The JPS Patient Care Pavilion is undergoing an expansion that will add two upper levels to the parking garage. The hospital’s patient care floor will also be expanded by the expansion. In addition, the facility will add a new cancer center. The committee also recommended the construction of a new mental- and behavioral health hospital. The committee released a report that stated that private hospitals are not equipped to meet the growing demand for psychiatric services.

The pavilion will include seven state-of-the-art operating rooms for certain surgical procedures. Three trauma operating rooms will be kept in the main hospital, until the emergency department is relocated. Officials have decided that the Tuesday shift will be the slowest day of week. This will ensure JPS has the resources to meet emergency patient needs during this time.

The new facility will also have single-occupant progressive care rooms. These rooms will be equipped using Stryker iSuite equipment. This equipment connects operating room via a telemedicine network. The equipment also allows surgeons to adjust lighting and other surgical controls remotely. A 40-slice Siemens CT scanner will be featured in the new building. This scanner will be more efficient than older technology and provide better images.

The new facility is five stories tall and covers 233,000 square feet. The facility was completed in 2008 The original name of the hospital was the City-County Hospital. However, it was renamed John Peter Smith Hospital after 1954. It was named for a former mayor, who donated the land.
