HYANNIS – A new $180 million state-of-the-art six-story tower has been announced as the newest addition to Cape Cod Hospital.

The new facility, which will be built opposite the Mugar Bed Tower on the west side of the hospital, will also involve redevelopment of the campus, including improved infrastructure, improved traffic circulation with additional parking, and expansion of the surgical suite within the original hospital footprint.

The number of beds at the Hyannis hospital would also increase with the new tower.

The new facility is expected to serve the hospital’s cardiovascular patients and expand their medical and radiation oncology services.

In a statement issued to hospital staff and volunteers, CEO Michael Lauf said the new tower project would be a “transformative step toward the future for Cape Cod.”

“This new 6-floor addition to the hospital will create a state-of-the-art facility to serve our cardiovascular patients, a needed expansion of our critical care service, and expansion of our medical and radiation oncology services,” the statement said.

There will also be space in the new construction to accommodate future growth of medical/surgical services, including the development of a Level III trauma program, continued enhancement of our surgical services and improved access to community-based care.

The new project, which will be built opposite the Mugar Bed Tower on the west side of the hospital, will also involve redevelopment of the campus, including improved infrastructure, improved traffic circulation with additional parking, and expansion of the surgical suite within the original hospital footprint.

The total cost of the project will be $180 million and has been approved by the Cape Cod Healthcare Board of Trustees.

A formal groundbreaking ceremony and event for the new tower project will be held this fall.

“This project represents a bold statement to our community that, on the eve of the 100th anniversary of the founding of Cape Cod Hospital, we are here for the long-term as an independent, top-quality regional medical center and healthcare system,” said Lauf.
