Good Samaritan Hospital announces $78 million expansion

DOWNERS GROVE – Advocate Health Care plans to build a $78 million expansion of its Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove later this year.

Good Samaritan Hospital President Dave Fox announced the project Thursday afternoon at the annual Downers Grove Economic Development Corporation Luncheon.

Construction of the three-floor private patient room bed tower is proposed to begin in late 2014, hospital spokesperson Lisa Parro said.

The new bed tower is proposed to be built above the existing critical care pavilion on the north end of the hospital campus on Highland Avenue, she said.

Upon completion in late 2016 or early 2017, all of Good Samaritan Hospital’s existing semi-private rooms will be converted into private rooms, resulting in an all private-room campus.

"The project will allow us to continue our tradition of providing exceptional patient care and will further our mission of serving the health needs of individuals, families and communities," she said in an email.
