Presbyterian Hospital plans Albuquerque campus expansion

July 11, 2019

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Presbyterian Hospital is planning to expand its downtown Albuquerque campus with the construction of an 11-story tower.

Presbyterian Healthcare Services announced Wednesday the $260 million project that will add 144 patient rooms, bringing the hospital’s room total to 656.

Hospital officials say the project that’s expected to be completed in 2022 aims to cut down wait times and modernize patient rooms.

All of the new rooms will be private.

Officials say the expansion will double the size of the emergency room waiting area.

The hospital also is building a new parking garage that will add 800 spaces to the campus. The hospital expects the structure to be completed next year.
