Aventura Medical Center Plans Expansion
Brian Bandell reporting for the SFBJ:

After recently opening its expanded emergency room, Aventura Hospital & Medical Center will seek city approval for even bigger growth with new patient beds and a parking garage.

...the hospital, which is owned by HCA Corp...has requested a larger setback from the street, increased density and less open space in order to accommodate its site plan.

... Aventura Hospital's new expansion plan calls for a three-story building of 86,900 square feet for patient care plus a 506-space parking garage. The patient care building would be on the east side of the existing south tower and feature 60 patient rooms, waiting rooms and a lounge.
