Hospital Campus Construction

Bellin Hospital Embarks on Maternity/NICU and Lobby Project


Bellin Hospital is preparing for a major facilities upgrade that will optimize access and care for moms and babies. To make room for these exciting changes, the hospital kitchen will move to the fifth floor and a new and improved cafeteria will open in our revamped hospital lobby.

This multiyear project is underway now as the main hospital lobby begins its transformation to make way for the hospital’s new cafeteria. Other changes in the lobby will include an upgraded registration area that offers self-serve kiosks for those who choose to use them. The coffee shop, gift shop and pharmacy will remain on the first floor, but in different locations.

These initial changes will make way for the ultimate driver of this project, the expansion of Bellin’s Maternity Department and the addition of a state-of-the-art, unique-to-our-region Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The NICU will occupy space on the third floor, where the kitchen and cafeteria are now. The hospital kitchen will move to the fifth floor and will offer an improved selection of fresh-to-order options that take dining at Bellin to the next level.

So what does this mean for you, the patient or visitor?

  • Please be patient as we navigate this complex but ultimately extremely worthwhile project. Initial construction will occur in our very visible lobby area, which may look different the next time you visit.
  • Allow extra time when traveling to appointments or to visit a loved one.
    • Parking impacts will begin in early 2020.
    • Hospital navigation may change for some departments. Arriving early will help you avoid the stress of rushing to your appointment.
  • The end result is a better experience for you, the patient or visitor. Whether you’re an expectant new family, a patient looking to ease the check-in process or a visitor who wants that next-level dining experience, you’ll find it here! We thank you for bearing with us as we take these upgrades from concept to reality.
