Doctors Hospital opened a new three-story patient tower in August. Shortly, after the opening of the tower, the hospital began work to marry the design of the new South Tower with its existing North Tower.

Crews have been working steadily for the past six months to replace the elevators in the hospital’s North Tower and to renovate the hospital’s North Tower lobby areas for patients, and their family members and friends.
