Slideshow: Construction on schedule, new UPMC Pinnacle Memorial slated for August openingUPMC Pinnacle hosted a media tour of the hospital construction site on Wednesday
As construction on the new UPMC Pinnacle Memorial Hospital campus shifts more toward interior work before winter, health system officials say they are targeting mid-August 2019 to open the York County facility.
UPMC Pinnacle on Wednesday held a media tour of the new hospital off Loucks Road in West Manchester Township. The five-story, 220,000-square-foot Memorial Hospital, which will replace a smaller Memorial building in Spring Garden Township, will have 126 patient rooms. It is being built on the former Hawk Lake Golf Course, a 121-acre property.
The hospital will feature acute and emergency medical care, cardiology and vascular services, chronic disease management and surgical services. In addition, there are single-room maternity suites with labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum services.
UPMC Pinnacle is spending more than $300 million on the new Memorial campus, which also will include a 75,000-square-foot outpatient center next to the hospital with ambulatory surgery, a women's imaging suite, a sleep lab, infusion center and cardiac rehab. The property also has five other pad sites that could be built to complement the hospital.
Like UPMC Pinnacle's West Shore Hospital in Cumberland County, the new Memorial Hospital is being built with future expansion in mind, officials said.
"We're always looking at expansion opportunities as patient volumes increase," said Paul Toburen, senior vice president of facilities and support services for UPMC Pinnacle, who led the tour.
About 200 construction workers are currently working on the Memorial site.
UPMC Pinnacle also has hospitals in Lancaster County and in Hanover, York County, that could see future changes as well.
