Johns Hopkins plans $469 million expansion and modernization of its Bayview Medical Center

Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center would get a modern hospital facility and renovations to two existing buildings in a $469 million plan to upgrade the Southeast Baltimore campus that serves both the local community and more far-flung patients seeking specialty care.

The long-planned overhaul would mean private patient rooms and state-of-the-art operating rooms, as well as other many other infrastructure upgrades, according to a plan presented by the hospital to state regulators.

Hospital officials say this would allow the hospital to better meet patient expectations, as well as increase privacy and safety. It’s also in keeping with services offered at other hospitals in the region that have modernized with renovation and construction projects, including the $1.1 billion Johns Hopkins complex that opened in 2012.

“Getting our patients into private rooms, that’s the fundamental thing,” said Charles Reuland, Bayview’s executive vice president and chief operating officer. “More than half the patients are in semi-private rooms and you can imagine it’s a patient safety and infection control and privacy issue.”
