University of Miami’s Bascom Palmer Eye Institute has four expansion initiatives planned that total 547,475 square feet.
The first initiative is to double the size of its 6,157-square-foot office in Plantation.
By the fall of 2013, Bascom Palmer plans to add 21,318 square feet to its Palm Beach Gardens medical office – a nearly 50 percent increase in size.
In Naples, Bascom Palmer is adding 1,283 square feet to its office in the next few months, which also represents a 50 percent increase. By 2014, it would like to have another 20,000 square feet there.
At its home base in Miami, Bascom Palmer is working on a long-term master plan to replace its current hospital and main campus with a 500,000-square-foot facility. That is nearly double the size of what it currently has. It would be built on land that UM already owns using private donations.
Bascom Palmer has also increased its amount of clinical research.
U.S. New & World Report has recognized Bascom Palmer as the best eye hospital in the nation for quality of care.
