This project included the construction of a new addition to provide all new inpatient rooms, additional specialty clinic space, and a new main entrance with registration and support spaces.
The design team began the process with a master plan to evaluate the existing facility conditions, and evaluate the current and future program needs of the various departments. The first phase of the facility master plan involves a new two story addition housing eighteen inpatient Med-Surg beds, specialty clinic space, and a new main entrance with registration and a gift/coffee shop.
Renovations in the existing hospital include public dining and portions of radiology and the laboratory. Infrastructure upgrades in the project include a new hot water heating plant to replace the steam plant, a new fire alarm system, and the removal of the old 1969 and 1977 distribution switchboards. Multiple independent projects were completed in conjunction with this project.
One major project involved the upgrade of the existing chilled water plant. The upgrade replaced a failed chiller and provided additional capacity (future chiller provision) and reliability to serve the needs outlined in master plan. Other projects include a parking lot expansion, clinic space tenant infill, and renovation of an endoscopy room.
