Ashtabula County Medical Center | ACMC Pulse | Summer 2023

CONSTRUCTION CONTINUES for Patient Care Tower CONSTRUCTION ON ACMC’S new Patient Care Tower began a year ago. Demolition and excavation dominated the 2022 summer months, and by the time of the first snowfall, anyone who drove by ACMC’s main campus could see the steel framework quickly rising. Work has now turned to completing concrete flooring, roofing and exterior walls. ACMC anticipates seeing the first patients in the 115,000-square-foot multistory addition early in 2024. Interior concrete flooring was laid while the steelwork was being finished. Plans for the remainder of 2023 include running miles of electrical and computer cables; installing drywall and water, steam and sewer pipes; completing interior walls; and more. As areas are completed in early 2024, equipment must be moved into place and everything finalized before the first patients arrive. Blueprints for better care The new facility will offer 55 new patient rooms (including 10 Intensive Care Unit rooms), five new operating rooms, 24 new Emergency Department rooms, a new central atrium and welcome desk, meeting space, and a new location for the ACMC Wound Healing Center. Where existing services are moved out of the current hospital, those areas will be repurposed based on caregiver and patient needs. ACMC Healthcare System President and CEO Leonard Stepp, Jr., said that construction is living up to the overall project theme—Advancing Healthcare: Today and Tomorrow. “It is a theme that pays tribute to our past, recognizes what we do today, and promises what we will do tomorrow for the betterment of Ashtabula County healthcare.” Expansion FOLLOW OUR PROGRESS To keep up with the latest information about construction, please visit and click on the “Patient Care Tower” tab.
