UHS Breaks Ground On New Alan B. Miller Medical Center

VIPs gather for the groundbreaking ceremony at the future Alan B. Miller Medical Center.

Universal Health Services recently held a celebratory groundbreaking ceremony for a new full-service hospital to be located on Pasteur Blvd. in Palm Beach Gardens. The state-of-the-art hospital is expected to open in 2025 and will join UHS’ growing regional network of healthcare operations, which includes Wellington Regional Medical Center, the ER at Westlake, Wellington Physicians Urgent Care, and other healthcare services and access points.

The name of the new hospital will be the Alan B. Miller Medical Center, named after the founder and executive chairman of UHS.

The Alan B. Miller Medical Center will feature 150 private patient rooms, a medical office building and a helistop. Upon completion of the initial phase of the project, the hospital campus will include 365,000 square feet of hospital and medical office space. It will offer comprehensive medical services, including emergency care, orthopedics and surgical services, labor and delivery, neonatal intensive care, oncology, cardiovascular and neurosurgical services. In addition, the campus will be home to medical office buildings that will provide outpatient services.

During construction, the project will create an estimated 1,500 jobs indirectly, and when fully open, the hospital will provide an estimated 800 new healthcare jobs. The Alan B. Miller Medical Center will improve access to healthcare, offer more choices for patients, and serve as an extension of the quality care already offered within the Palm Beach Gardens region.

“While the healthcare industry is highly dynamic, one thing that remains steady is our commitment to focusing on the patients we are privileged to serve,” said Marc D. Miller, president and CEO of Universal Health Services. “From a care perspective, we are an organization of compassionate providers that has earned a reputation over the last 40-plus years as a leader in healthcare that is trusted and respected. We look forward to investing in and serving this thriving community.”

In 1979, Alan B. Miller had a vision for a healthcare company that would provide superior quality healthcare services that patients recommend to family and friends, physicians prefer for their patients, purchasers select for their clients, employees are proud of and investors seek for long-term returns. More than 40 years later, that vision still stands as the mission statement of UHS, one of the nation’s leading providers of hospital and healthcare services.

“Our purpose at UHS is to take care of patients and do so with excellence, integrity and by employing committed, talented individuals,” UHS Founder & Executive Chairman Alan B. Miller said. “We will carry out our duties with superior quality and by making decisions with patient care in mind at all times.”

Construction will be handled by Turner Construction, while the architect/engineering firm is Gresham Smith and Partners.

“This is a wonderful location that will be attractively designed with the possibility of future expansion as the hospital continues to develop its services to match the growth of the community,” said Kevin DiLallo, vice president of development for UHS in Palm Beach Gardens. “We will serve as the community hospital offering leading-edge medical care.”

While Alan B. Miller transitioned his CEO responsibilities to Marc D. Miller in 2021, consistent with the company’s longstanding succession plan, his vision continues to inspire the 94,000 employees who care for 3.4 million patients annually. It is the foundation of UHS’ commitment to care for its communities.
