Bryn Mawr Hospital announced plans Thursday for a $200 million modernization of its campus, including a five-story, 203,000-square-foot patient pavilion with 12 operating rooms and 72 private patient rooms. Bryn Mawr will have 250 inpatient rooms after the project is completed. That is about the same number it uses now. "It's a historic modernization project that takes us to the next chapter for this hospital and this community, but it is clearly on the inpatient side, not a growth strategy," said Andrea Gilbert, president of the hospital.

Such inquiries stem from more than a year of turmoil at the storied Main Line institution, including the departures of staffers and board members, whiffs of scandal, and a regime change. The nonprofit's new leaders - who came to power just before Christmas - say the upheaval is behind them.
