Trinity Regional Health System plans to expand it's heart center and emergency.
"This is expansion is really designed to improve patient safety and privacy, better coordinate care, reduce operational costs and accommodate the increased demand we've seen," Trinity President and CEO Rick Seidler said.
The $61.3 million facility will be 90,000 square feet and three stories tall.
The increase number of patients in the cardiac unit and the emergency department is more than the current Rock Island hospital can handle, prompting an expansion.
Trinity also plans to use local engineers, architectures and construction firms to complete the project.
