Genesis Health System announced plans for a big development project in the Quad Cities. The plans call for a $138.5 million expansion of its east campus in Davenport.

"We'll bring over all the medical and surgical services that are located on the west campus," said Doug Cropper, President and CEO of Genesis Health System. "Things like orthopedics, in-patient oncology, neuroscience."

The project includes a new, seven story tower, built on the campus off Rusholme St. It also includes 12 new, state-of-the-art operating rooms and additional hospital beds. Medical staff is looking forward to the extra space.

"We have so much technology now that we cram into a space that was designed 40 years ago when none of it existed," said Dr. Joe Lohmuller, Chief Medical Officer.

"The surgical teams -- the nurses, the technicians -- will all be able to do things a lot more easily and safely for our patients."

At a news conference Dec., 12, 2013, officials said they would borrow most of the money needed to cover the cost and the rest would come from cash on hand.
