Maryland Hospital's Patient Tower Expansion Finished

  November 16, 2015

The new South Building tower at Holy Cross Hospital on the newly named Kevin J. Sexton campus in Silver Spring, Md., has been completed.

The new seven-story patient care building addition is the hospital’s largest expansion project in more than 50 years. The 232,000-square-foot facility houses 150 private patient rooms in critical care, intermediate care and medical-surgical units.

The curved design of the South Building incorporates a special curtain wall design into the structure to assure a quiet and peaceful environment to enhance patient recovery. Other key features include a new concourse connecting the new building to the rest of the hospital and a designated space for older adults in the renovated surgery department.

The building has been designed to achieve LEED Gold certification.
