Edmondo Robinson, physician-in-chief at Wilmington Hospital, tells members of the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce what the new 9-story South Tower at 14th and Washington streets will mean for the people of Wilmington.

"We're increasing our capacity to take care of patients, both the really sick patients in the ICU, our joint center patients as well, our emergency department is expanding, twice the size of our current size," he said.

A big focus of the $210 million expansion project is keeping people OUT of the hospital.

"We're actually starting to think about keeping people healthy so that they don't need to go into the hospital at all, and so part of our commitment to the community in doing that is really revamping and expanding our outpatient services," he said.

Robinson says when the project is completed sometime next year, the hospital will have the largest outpatient center in the city, a state-of-the-art surgical suite, and 300 new jobs.
