MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup increased its patient capacity by opening two new floors in its Dally Tower.
The tower originally opened in 2011, but the seventh and eighth floors were left unfinished to allow for future expansion. According to the hospital, the need for space had grown enough by 2015 to warrant finishing the extra floors.
The expansion adds 40 beds to a post-surgical unit on the seventh floor and an additional 40 beds to a Progressive Care Unit on the eighth floor.
Thanks to the additional space, the hospital also will expand other services throughout the campus, including adding seven beds to its Pulse Heart Institute Critical Care Unit, adding eight beds to its ICU, creating 18 beds as part of a new obstetric addiction inpatient unit, and adding 23 beds to the hospital’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Program.
Good Samaritan Hospital serves more than 300,000 residents of east Pierce County and employs more than 1,600 providers, specialists, and employees.
