How Suburban Hospital Plans To Change Its Look Overnight
Suburban Hospital is located in the heart of Bethesda, Maryland. At this point, the current hospital facility is getting older and, is considered by many to be outdated. Team members from Suburban hospital have hired Clark Construction to build a brand new five-story hospital addition that will connect to the existing building. As a matter of fact, the new hospital wing will be located on the north side of the hospital grounds. Meanwhile, it’s expected to take two years to complete the new addition.
Because the hospital is an older building, renovations are desperately needed. Clark Construction has offered to make changes to the hospitals loading dock, dining room, and maintenance departments. In addition, Clark team members have agreed to widen a hallway on the first floor in the radiology department.
