As part of our ongoing partnership with HCA, our team is working with Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center in Panama City on an expansion project that will add 67,000 feet of square footage and 52 beds. After suffering damage from Hurricane Michael in 2018 that drastically reduced bed capacity, this new expansion will put the facility in a better position to serve the needs of the Bay County community. The construction will add nearly 67,000 square feet and 52 new beds to Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center, including the addition of a fourth and fifth floor to the north tower. A connector from the 3rd floor of the north tower to the main facility will also be constructed. The fourth floor will house a new medical/surgical floor featuring 22 private patient rooms. The fifth floor will house a state of the art, 18- bed acute inpatient rehabilitation facility.
In addition, a third floor will be added to the south tower, housing a new 12-bed surgical intensive care unit. CEO of Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center, Brad Griffin, said “The resiliency of the Bay County community is inspiring, we are proud to be able to invest in our region’s recovery in this significant way and we continue to be extremely optimistic about the future. As our community’s rebuilding continues, we want our patients to know they can continue to depend on Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center to ensure they have convenient access to comprehensive healthcare services.”
