Summary Back to Top

New construction on this IPD project included an outpatient entrance featuring a dramatic two-story lobby, cantilevered vehicular canopy, and exaggerated elevator tower, creating a highly visible entrance to the hospital.

A separate two-story addition provides space for a 15-position PACU and Endoscopy Suite, as well as a Same Day Prep/Recovery Suite with 29 private patient positions.

The first floor of the PACU addition is adjacent to the existing Emergency Department and provides 13 beds to support both Observation/CDU and Inpatient Pediatrics.

Other elements of the project included:

  • Renovations to the surgery platform to create 8 “fully functional” operating rooms
  • Renovation of the Inpatient Unit for a 21-bed Progressive Care Unit
  • Renovation of Radiology to incorporate Nuclear Medicine and establish a patient prep/recovery area
  • Renovations to support services including Central Sterile, Laboratory, and Respiratory Therapy in support of clinical care
  • Renovation of the visitor lobby, gift shop, chapel, and pastoral services
  • Cosmetic upgrades to public corridors
  • 157,000 SF of site work
