Philadelphia Inquirer: Bryn Mawr Hospital construction planned

Bryn Mawr Hospital announced plans Thursday for a $200 million modernization of its campus, including a five-story, 203,000-square-foot Patient Pavilion with 12 operating rooms and 72 private patient rooms.

Bryn Mawr will have 250 inpatient rooms after the project is completed. That is about the same number it uses now.

“It’s a historic modernization project that takes us to the next chapter for this hospital and this community, but it is clearly on the inpatient side, not a growth strategy,” said Andrea Gilbert, president of the hospital.

The building will increase operating rooms for inpatients by four, Gilbert said.

Included in the $200 million budget are upgrades to Bryn Mawr’s labor/delivery and maternity-care units.
