Mercy Health-Cincinnati hosted a ceremony marking completion of the first phase of a renovation and expansion project at The Jewish Hospital-Mercy Health.

Local dignitaries and officials from Sycamore Township joined senior leaders from Mercy Health in July to cut the ribbon at Jewish Hospital’s new patient care tower.

The $80 million project remade and created one main entrance; added a 154,000-square-foot, five-story patient tower; and renovated 32,000 square feet of the existing facility. Physicians donated $120,000 for a fountain in the courtyard.

The project included upgrades or new construction for the intensive care unit, blood cancer center, emergency department, orthopedic unit, cardiology, neuroscience and medical education center, as well as making all patient rooms private.
