This project involved a 110,000-sq.-ft. vertical expansion and expanded central mechanical plant. The vertical expansion focuses on women and infants, including a new lobby, ante-partum and post-partum patient rooms, LDR, C-Section OR’s and recovery, and 28 private NICU rooms. Also included in the vertical expansion are six new elevators and other circulation improvements to the existing facility. The structure is a steel frame with EIFS, glass, and masonry skin. Also included in the project is removal and replacement of parking areas, new playground areas, and expansion of the ER entrance.
The central mechanical plant consists of a new structure built to house two new and two relocated chillers and one new and one relocated cooling tower. Included are a new generator, switchgear, new service feed, and multiple other electrical distribution modifications. The new utility capacity of the expanded plant feed the vertical expansion via a 600-ft. trench routed under the hospital.
