Robins & Morton’s Orlando office chosen for $50 million project at Wellington Regional Medical Center

Wellington Regional Medical Center is planning a $50 million addition with 80 patient rooms.

Wellington Regional Medical Center plans to start construction in September of a $50 million tower, which will provide a new hospital entrance and 80 private rooms for patients.

The Orlando office of Robins & Morton was chosen as the general contractor for the hospital, which is owned by Universal Health Services (NYSE: UHS) of King of Prussia, Pa.

The expansion will provide space to care for high-risk mothers before birth and a post-ICU care area.

Completion is expected in late 2012. A new cafeteria area is also planned.

“Wellington Regional Medical Center has been providing the finest quality healthcare services to the residents of Palm Beach County for the past 25 years,” CEO Jerel Humphrey said in a news release. “This expansion project underscores our continued commitment to the community by enhancing our capabilities to better serve our patients and by providing the much needed space to develop and expand services for many years to come.”
