The five-story 502,608 SF replacement hospital was constructed on the existing campus of the Meritus Regional Medical Center. The floor plan comprises 247 acute care beds and 20 comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation beds, all in single rooms.

A Service Building was also built on this level for laundry and other non-clinical support functions.
