Pekin Hospital’s Board of Trustees has approved a $2 million plan to renovate the now vacant sixth-floor of the hospital’s patient tower.

The project will ultimately add 16 new private patient rooms bringing the hospital’s complement of private rooms to 81.

Construction is scheduled to begin April 1, 2013 and conclude in approximately eight to nine months.

Other planned improvements for the sixth floor include adding energy efficient windows, increasing computer access, and expanding physician work areas
