TriHealth CEO Mark Clement unveiled plans for an $85 million expansion of Bethesda North Hospital in Montgomery, Ohio—all designed to provide more space for heart patients and enhance cancer care.

According to an article in the Cincinnati Business Inquirer, the investment in the massive Thomas Comprehensive Care Center at Bethesda North will enable the nonprofit to expand its capacity and capabilities. Reporter Barrett J. Brunsman writes: “The building, which encompasses 140,000 square feet on the 90-acre campus, includes scores of patient rooms and exam rooms as well as heart and cancer clinics…The Thomas Center will house all cancer services that exist on the Bethesda North campus now, including the Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Care, along with new and expanded programs.

Priorities include developing “a cutting-edge research platform by making targeted infrastructure investments and leveraging existing and new relationships to expand patient enrollment and the portfolio of clinical trials while streamlining existing processes,” according to TriHealth.

Plans for the TriHealth Heart Institute part of the building feature 87 patient rooms and 47 exam rooms, including 18 cardiology exam rooms, nine cardiology testing rooms, nine vascular exam rooms, six cardio-thoracic exam rooms, and five structural heart exam rooms.
