DALTON, Ga. — Dalton-based Hamilton Medical Center, not-for-profit hospital of the Hamilton Health Care System, announced plans for a 175,000 square feet expansion.
In a press release officials said it is to serve the growing cardiovascular needs of the region.
The Robert E. Shaw family has provided a gift of support for the cardiovascular pavilion, which will house cardiovascular surgery and an array of cardiovascular specialty services, such as electrophysiology, interventional cardiology, and structural cardiology.
Jeff Myers, president and chief executive officer for Hamilton Health Care System expressed his gratitude for the flooring entrepreneur’s support.
“Hamilton is extremely grateful to Mr. Shaw and the Shaw family for their gift of support.” Myers said. “From Hamilton’s very beginning in 1921, the hospital, and subsequently, the health system, has been known for bringing healthcare innovation to this region, including open heart surgery and advanced cardiovascular care.”
The cardiovascular program has seen high growth in the last few years, especially with the development of the cardiovascular surgery program.
“For far too long, cardiovascular disease has taken a tremendous toll and we have felt the loss of too many of our friends, families and neighbors in this region,” Myers said. “Hamilton has recruited best-in-class teams of surgeons, physicians, nursing, clinical and support staff because excellence in cardiovascular care is what everyone deserves and it is what Hamilton demands of itself and for those it serves. Our pledge to our patients and to each other is Excellence. Every Person. Every Time. This facility construction project represents our commitment to our pledge, physician-led and patient-centered care, and our continued commitment to revolutionize the future of healthcare.”
