Serving the needs of a growing population

Community Hospital South's expansion project in 2010 enlarged the hospital to nearly 406,000 square feet and added 50 patient rooms for a total of 150 all-private rooms. Community South is ahead of the curve to meet the needs of the communities it serves—southern Marion County, Johnson County and Morgan County.

Seven conference rooms and meeting rooms for public education classes are located off the main lobby, along with an expanded Jasmine gift shop. Outpatient programs such as blood draw and EKG testing are consolidated toward the front of the patient tower for ease of access and convenience. The first floor of the patient tower also includes an expanded outpatient observation/infusion unit, a new dining area and three public elevators that lead to patient rooms.

The first-floor space in the existing hospital houses the imaging suites and six new state-of-the-art surgery suites equipped with the latest technology.

As with the third and fourth floor, there is a separate waiting area for families of patients that contains a kitchenette and TV so families don't have to wait in the public lobby.

Natural light from large windows at the end of each corridor make the hallways leading to the patient rooms more inviting, while the curvature of the building breaks the line of sight, enhancing patients' privacy.

Patient rooms

All patient rooms are private rooms, a response to requests from patients, staff and physicians alike. Private rooms are quiet, decrease the need to move patients and encourage more open and meaningful conversation between patients, families and health care providers—allowing more coordinated care.

Bathrooms are placed in close proximity to the patient bed, with a handrail connecting them to minimize the risk of falls. An abundance of natural light, soothing earth-tone colors and ambient sound promote the healing process.

The spacious rooms include a separate area for the family, complete with a second TV and sleep sofa so family members can spend the night if they want.

Decentralized nursing stations are located outside each room for more attentive, personalized care.

The third floor of the existing building contains additional hospital rooms.

The existing hospital building houses 16 totally renovated maternity suites and a new level two nursery. New parents benefit from the use of labor-delivery-recovery-postpartum (LDRP) rooms—there's no need to move to a different room after the baby is born.

This as-yet undeveloped space will allow the addition of up to 24 patient rooms when they are needed, bringing the total number of beds to 74.
