Kadlec Regional Medical Center’s plan to add four floors to the River Pavilion Tower is nearing completion.
It will raise the height of the tower at 888 Swift Blvd. in Richland from six stories to 10.
The $59 million project is expected to meet the needs of the community with more patient care accessibility for acute and intensive care.
The expansion project will add 90,000 square feet and include 94 rooms — 54 acute care, 20 universal and 20 intensive care units.
The project also includes a garden terrace off the seventh floor with money raised through the Kadlec Foundation.
Floors eight and 10 will be completed in September with the first patient expected on Oct. 4. Floors seven and nine will be completed in November with the first patient expected by Dec. 12.
Though the River Pavilion opened in June 2008, it was originally built for the four-floor expansion.
Bouten Construction Co. of Richland is the general contractor. Tony Spratling of Bouten Construction is the senior project manager.
Davis Partnership Architect of Denver, Colorado, designed the project.
