Family Birth and Children’s Center

One of the next major capital projects at Munson Medical Center will be the construction of a new six-story addition to house patient care services, including a new Family Birth and Children’s Center.

Surgical Expansion

Across the country, surgeries are on the rise, and so is the technology that accompanies them. As operating rooms (ORs) reach capacity, new technologies emerge, and the population continues to age, hospital leadership and physicians are seeking ways to accommodate this growing patient need. At the heart of matters, Munson Medical Center wants to blend efficiency and quality with convenience and compassion close to home. Bringing more specialty surgical options to the local communities provides superior care at the patient's doorstep. The plan is to build four new operating rooms, upgrade two older rooms, effectively creating six new state-of-the-art surgical suites, including one new hybrid operating room. Learn more about how Munson Medical Center is working to better the patient experience.


The Innovation Fund has been established at Munson Medical Center Healthcare Foundations to enable hospital leadership to respond quickly to opportunities that change the way care is delivered, improving patient health. 

Recruitment of new medical specialists to our communities may require a new forward-thinking program, game-changing equipment, or cutting-edge technology that improves patient care. Recently, gifts to Munson Medical Center’s Innovation Fund enabled us to purchase the UroNav system, a revolutionary diagnostic tool that aids in the detection and treatment of prostate cancer.

With the Innovation Fund, we will continue to improve, innovate, and excel.
