Cleveland Clinic Avon Inpatient Bed Tower
The city of Avon will have its first full-service hospital as early as 2016 when the seven-story, 126 bed addition to the Cleveland Clinic facility is completed. Heapy Engineering is designing the Mechanical-Electrical systems for the expansion of the Cleveland Clinic Richard E. Jacobs Health Center.
The existing facility on Just Imagine Drive is strictly for out-patient procedures. When the new Inpatient bed tower is completed, the city of Avon will finally have a full hospital.
The $143 million expansion entails an addition of 250,000 SF to the current 190,000 SF at the health center, with 25 to 30 rooms on each floor. The tower will also include a connector building to the existing Family Health Center and a helipad.
The current, $93 million Jacobs Health Center opened in December, 2011, and has been a bigger success than hospital officials expected. The clinic purchased 31 adjoining acres to the facility, bringing the overall size to 71 acres to allow for the bed tower expansion.
