The construction of an entirely new hospital will take Community East into the future for many years to come. The $175 million investment project includes demolishing four buildings on the campus, building the new hospital tower housing inpatient and procedural rooms, and moving its Family Medicine Center from 10th and Mithoeffer to the campus at 1500 N. Ritter. In 2016, a new emergency department will be built at the back of the hospital. The redevelopment project is expected to be completed in 2019 – with virtually no disruption to patient care.
