A New Era - Bayhealth Milford Memorial
The current footprint of Bayhealth Milford Memorial.
Facility Development Overview
Bayhealth is excited at the prospect of developing a replacement hospital on the existing campus of Milford Memorial – a location that has served the community since 1938. Bayhealth is investing over $200 million for a new, state of the art facility to serve Milford and the surrounding communities.
In August 2012, Bayhealth selected EwingCole, a nationally recognized architecture, engineering, interior design and planning firm, to develop the master facility plan. The plan will design the footprint for the new hospital, adjacent parking access and necessary support facilities.
EwingCole will assist Bayhealth in evaluating the existing medical center campus and making recommendations about building locations, phasing of construction related to pedestrian access and traffic patterns, and maximizing the site to blend in with the Milford urban environment. EwingCole is expected to complete the process over an 18 month period.
The new facility will be a full-service community hospital with state-of-the-art inpatient and ambulatory care capabilities that will help the organization respond to the inevitable challenges healthcare reform will present and the need for expanded clinical integration and growth in ambulatory care services.
The new hospital will provide emergency services, intensive care, surgical services, diagnostic and imaging services, inpatient dialysis, OB/GYN, inpatient rehabilitation beds, and medical/surgical beds. All patient rooms will be private to improve patient privacy and provide more space for family and provider-patient interaction.
