An existing area previously occupied by the lobby and gift shop became the connector to the vertical circulation core. During construction, this area was used as a temporary lobby, with a temporary drop-off canopy, allowing for the construction area to be isolated from the public. The first floor houses the maternity suite, with 10 labor and delivery rooms, a triage area, PACU, and C-section rooms with the appropriate support areas. A new elevator core was added to connect the first floor to the upper floors, specifically providing a direct connection between the maternity suite and the neo-natal unit.
The second floor is occupied by the relocated NICU and 28 new private post-partum rooms. The area closest to the existing hospital has the new 10-bed NICU, with approximately half of the stations as private and the other half as open bays. The other half of the floor is occupied by the post-partum rooms, configured in a racetrack layout with the rooms around the perimeter and support services at the center.
The third floor includes the new medical/surgical wing with 28 new patient rooms, and the fourth floor is currently a shell space, with all of the utilities in place for future development as a patient floor.
