Brookwood Baptist Medical Center and Robins & Morton celebrated the opening of the medical center’s new operating room addition.

The addition stands two stories and encompasses 28,840 square feet. It includes 10 new operating rooms, with space for three more. There also is a new pedestrian bridge, as well as administrative spaces. Reports said the project was a $30 million addition.

“We’re proud to complete this project that brings more patient care space to Brookwood Baptist Medical Center,” said Ashley Dyer, Robins & Morton operations manager.

Evan Terry & Associates, based in Birmingham, served as the project’s architect.

Robins & Morton also is renovating the 3,500-square-foot post-anesthesia care unit, which should be finished later this summer.
