WESTWOOD, Kan. (AP) — Patient growth is prompting the University of Kansas Hospital to expand more quickly than planned. In July 2010, the hospital's board approved a plan to open a 32-bed patient unit and build two new floors for future expansion at its Center for Advanced Heart Care in Kansas City, Kansas. The new plan calls for adding 84 beds to the hospital on all three new floors. The hospital's authority board was told yesterday (TUE) that the entire space will be filled in by this summer. Hospital officials say when the $56.7 million project is done, the hospital will ask the state to expand its limit on adult beds to 745 from 620. The hospital plans to hire 200 to 250 employees for the new space.
