A more established timeline has been released for Norwalk Hospital’s $220 million expansion, including plans for a massive demolition. In a legal notice alerting the public of its plans, Nuvance Health, which owns and operates Norwalk Hospital, said the eastern portion of Tracey Pavilion and the entire Community Pavilion will be demolished on the hospital’s Maple Street campus. The demolition is part of the hospital’s $220 million renovation and expansion set to be completed by 2026, Nuvance Health spokesperson Donald Fantozzi said. “Following the demolition, construction of the new pavilion is scheduled to begin in fall 2023,” Fantozzi said. “In consideration of weather and other environmental factors, we estimate the building will be complete at the end of 2025 and expected to open in winter 2025-26.” Plans to demolish and rebuild portions of the hospital were first announced in June 2021, following an anticipated “surge” in births.
