Shady Grove Hospital Expansion


Shady Grove Adventist Hospital (SGAH) is part of Adventist HealthCare, an integrated healthcare delivery system that includes hospitals, home health agencies, nursing and rehabilitation centers, and other healthcare services. This full spectrum of services covers a wide range of healthcare needs. SGAH is a 336-licensed bed acute care facility that opened in 1979.

The hospital expansion project is a multi-phased construction and renovation project, which includes approximately 220,000 SF of new construction and 80,000 SF of renovation. Construction and renovation will involve the following major clinical functions: central sterile supply, a 16 OR surgical suite, pre and post-recovery units, new post-partum beds, new medical/surgical beds, new labor and delivery rooms, NICU, new pediatrics beds, new emergency treatment beds, new main and women’s services center entrances and associated site improvements. Phase 2 is a five-story structure that was completed in 2008 in the north east corner of the campus. Phase 3 consists of the interior renovation of floors 1, 2, and 3 of the existing hospital in several sequences.
