  • Einstein Medical Center Montgomery Completes Expansion

    Published: 01/13/2014


    Einstein Healthcare Network proudly announces the completion of two renovation projects at Einstein Medical Center Montgomery which add additional inpatient rooms to accommodate growth in key clinical services.

    The first project is the addition of a 24 patient beds Surgical Stepdown Unit– 4th Floor West which replaces the area formally dedicated as administrative office space.

    “We knew immediately upon opening Einstein Montgomery 15 months ago, that demand from the community would require the conversion of the 4th floor much sooner than we had originally planned,” said Beth Duffy, Chief Operating Officer, Einstein Medical Center Montgomery. “This expansion will enable our staff to better serve our patients, especially those who are recovering from surgery.”

    The new unit will bring the total number of licensed beds at Einstein Montgomery to 170. The 24 new beds will be located in all private rooms – as are all patient rooms at Einstein Montgomery. Four beds will be specifically dedicated to post cardiac bypass surgery patients who are being transitioned from the intensive care unit. The remaining 20 beds will be dedicated to post surgical patients who require monitored care.

    The second project is the addition of a seventh Labor/Delivery/Recovery room to accommodate the obstetrical service line. Since opening, Einstein Medical Center Montgomery has delivered over 2,100 babies.

    “In addition to the physical expansion resulting from these renovations, we’ve added more than 50 additional staff positions,” added Duffy.

    Since opening in September 2012, Einstein Montgomery has brought several new medical services to the area, including a Level III neonatal intensive care unit and minimally invasive cardiothoracic surgery. The facility now has 120 medical and surgical beds, a 22-bed critical care unit, a 20-bed post partum obstetrical care unit and an 8 bed Level III neonatal intensive care unit. It employs a staff of more than 1,000 employees and sits on 87 acres, a third of which will remain preserved as open space.
