The University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington is preparing to open a new $200 million building that will feature 128 single-bed rooms, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

Three things to know:

1. The new facility — the Miller Building — will begin admitting patients on June 1.

2. The Miller Building is designed to increase the number of private rooms at the hospital from 30 percent to almost 90 percent, however it does not increase the number of patients who can be cared for simultaneously.

3. Specialty surgery, cardiology, oncology and orthopedic patients will be treated at the facility. It also includes improved information technology and larger family spaces within rooms.
