As $80 million wing opens at Hartford Hospital, the hospital looks to its next major construction project: a patient care tower

As Hartford Hospital welcomes the first patients to its new, $80 million wing, the hospital is actively planning for what could be the next major building project on its campus: a modern tower of patients rooms that will be specialized by floor, depending on the type of health need. Flaks said it is too early to say how many stories the new structure might have, where it might be located on the campus — “we have ideas,” he said — how much it might cost or a timeline for construction. The wing is the largest construction project on the campus since the $150 million Bone & Joint Institute orthopedic center opened in 2016. There are 18 intensive care units on the second and third floors that will increase the hospital’s ICU capacity by nearly 20% to 105.
