Times Union: Samaritan Hospital Completion Set for September

The Times Union published a story Tuesday about the upcoming completion of the Heinrich Medicus Pavilion at Samaritan Hospital.

From the story:

The last of the new Samaritan Hospital facilities, part of a $99 million Troy Master Facilities Plan, is expected to open this September, a spokesman for parent St. Peter’s Health Partners said Monday.

The five-story patient pavilion, a parking garage and improvements to St. Mary’s Hospital were part of the master plan. St. Peter’s operates both Troy hospitals, as well as Albany Memorial and St. Peter’s Hospital in Albany.

The $10 million parking garage opened in the summer of 2015, providing 570 spaces. A $1.9 million cancer treatment center, meanwhile, was completed and opened at St. Mary’s, also in 2015. Later, Samaritan opened a new intensive care unit, emergency department and cardiopulmonary unit.

The patient pavilion is named for Heinrich Medicus, a retired physics professor from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, whose $10 million gift helped launch St. Peter’s fundraising campaign for improvements in Troy. Medicus, 98, died Feb. 26, 2017.
