Last week, Lakewood Ranch Medical Center (LWRMC) began construction on a $3 million renovation to its Women’s Center. The project is intended to give the Women’s Center a more spa-like atmosphere and expand access to high-quality maternity care in the Lakewood Ranch community. The first renovated rooms will be available in September, and the project is expected to be completed by early 2021.
In addition to design upgrades, the renovation will expand the Women Center’s capacity to 14 labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum rooms, ensuring mothers and babies stay together in the same room throughout their stay. There are also plans for significant improvements to the staff areas of the Women’s Center, including a redesign of the nurse station for improved functionality and efficiency.
