Princeton Baptist Medical Center unveiled its $57 million dollar expansion at a grand opening ceremony Tuesday November 13, 2012. The new construction features a stunning glass and steel exterior facing east and features generous open spaces and allows for an abundance natural light. The 90,000 square feet expansion features a brand new chapel “in the round”, which is a centerpiece inside the expansive lobby area and provides an inviting atmosphere for patient’s families and visitors.
However it is what patients and the public won’t see that makes the biggest impact. Sixteen over-sized surgery suites and two more procedure rooms featuring the latest technology provide physicians and staff with a highly efficient surgical environment within which to work. All of the surgery suites are double the size of previous operating rooms used at Princeton BMC. There is an abundance of floor space for equipment, supplies, and staff that will allow the surgery process to flow more smoothly. One of the most notable “firsts” with the expansion of the new Surgery Department is the addition of a Multi-Specialty Imaging suite that features Alabama’s first Artis ZEEGO multi-axis imaging system by Siemens. This leading-edge robotic technology allows surgeons to perform vascular and radiological images right in the operating room.
