4 Medical Construction & Design | September/October 2014 Scripps Encinitas' $94M project includes new ED, inpatient rooms Leichtag Foundation Critical Care Pavilion, which includes a new emergency department and inpatient rooms at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas in California, recently opened. Whiting-Turner Contracting is the general contractor for the expansion and Perkins + Will is the architect. The 72,321-square-foot pavilion is the centerpiece of the hospital's $94-million second phase of expansion, which also includes a new central energy plant, new medical imaging technology and various infrastructure improvements on and around the medical campus. The fi rst fl oor of the new build- ing houses a 26-bed emergency department, with all private rooms for greater patient confi dentiality and comfort. Two of the 26 treatment spaces can also serve as resuscita- tion rooms and four can serve as isolation rooms for patients with suspected airborne illnesses. The new facility also includes three intake rooms to help improve the fl ow of patient care. Project News Hasenstab Architects recently designed a new hybrid endovascular operating room for Akron General Medical Center. The 780-square-foot hybrid surgical suite provides advanced capabilities for endovascular and coronary diagnostics and treatment with the additional ability to perform more invasive surgery if necessary. In order to accommodate multiple procedure scenarios, the equipment incorporated also needed to be fl exible. Storage cabinets were designed with a rolling cart system and can be wheeled in from an adjacent sterile storage room. The space is also fi tted with multiple large monitors on long booms, which can be arranged where required or positioned out of the fi eld if not needed. The room can also be updated to provide other advanced cardiovascular procedures as medical advances take place. To provide space for the new hybrid OR, two older operating rooms were demolished and combined. The ceiling space provides boom-mounted arms for two 50-inch monitors, four smaller monitors, four operating lights, an equipment boom at the foot of the table and an anesthesia boom at the head of the table. Overhead medical gas connections were also provided if the perfusion machine is required during open heart surgery.
