ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Construction is underway on OSF Saint Anthony's new north tower. The building consists of four floors—the top three floors will house 78 private patient rooms while the ground floor will include a rejuvenation spa area, a weight management center, a pharmacy, and occupational health services. The additions to the hospital are also prompting a makeover of the entire building.
"We will continue to do some renovation in our existing building so that the experience for our patients and their family members will be the same throughout the building," says Karen Brown, OSF Saint Anthony's vice president of operations.
Brown says the project is expected to be completed by April 2018.
