Last Beams Placed for Faith Community Hospital Faith Community Hospital recently celebrated a major milestone in the construction process as team members from Hoar Construction, Faith Community Hospital and the Jacksboro, Texas community gathered to hoist one of the fi nal beams to the top of the structure. The new $24-million hospital will include a walk-in community clinic, freestanding emergency facility, a freestanding well- ness center with an indoor pool and obstetrics and onsite mammograms. At 86,000 square feet, the new hospital will be three times larger than the facility it is replacing. FCH will be the fi rst hospital in Texas to incorporate geothermal piping and wells. O'Connell Robertson is the architect and Hoar Construction is the general contractor. Construction Final at Prebys Cardiovascular Institute Construction of the new Prebys Cardiovascular Institute was recently completed. The facility is San Diego, California's largest and most advanced hospital dedicated to heart care. McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. served as general contractor of the hospital. Jacobs Engineering Group, Inc. served as the construction management fi rm on behalf of Scripps Health. HOK Architects was the project architect. The 383,000-square-foot building is located on the campus of Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla. Rising seven stories, the exterior is a combination of glass windows, bricks and steel — all designed to complement and blend with the architecture of the existing hospital. Projects Hybrid OR New Facility Opens at McKay Dee Hospital McKay Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah has started a new era with the grand opening of its hybrid operating room. Designed by TSA Architects, an interventional radiology room was completely remodeled to create the hybrid OR suite. The room can be used by specialists for both open and endovascular procedures in addition to the majority of the previous interventional procedures. The 900-square-foot room has a stepped ceiling to organize the clutter of boom-mounted lights, monitors and equipment, the imaging system rails and other room lights and air diffusers. To reduce the visual height of the room, a wainscot effect was created with the wall protection panels. The pattern in the flooring reflects the movement of the C-arm. Wood grains are part of the color palette to bring warm tones to the room. The Johns Hopkins Hospital Adds Private Patient Rooms Nelson/Harvey Building renovations at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in East Baltimore, Maryland are complete after a nearly 24-month construction project to modernize the two buildings origi- nally built in 1977. The makeover adds 136 new private patient rooms, which will be used primarily for Department of Medicine, pulmonology, gastroenterology and cardiac medicine patients. Whiting- Turner Contracting Company served as general contractor and teamed with architect Wilmot Sanz for the project. In addition to the private patient rooms, the facility of ers sleeping accom- modations for family members, fam- ily respite areas on each fl oor, updated software and equipment for caregivers and many more modern amenities. These renovations — part of a larger campus redevelopment project — nearly complete the hospital's conversion to all-private rooms. The last phase of renovations, consisting of 48 private rooms and 18 rehabilitation rooms, will take place in the Meyer Building, which was built in 1982. The project is scheduled for completion in mid-2016. Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children Welcomes First Patients After more than three years of construction and months of preparation, more than 100 patients recently transitioned from an existing building into the newly expanded Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware. Skanska served as general contractor, with FKP Architects as the project's architect. The 450,000-square-foot expansion features all single patient rooms, an expanded emergency department and pediatric intensive care unit and a fi ve-story atrium. The design emphasizes light and natural elements to improve healing. The new space also features an interactive wall that uses the latest technology to create a living garden, complete with changing seasons and weather patterns. The existing hospital facility was built in 1984 and will continue to serve as the hub for neonatal intensive care, cardiac care and ambulatory services. completed & upcoming 8 Medical Construction & Design | JA N UA RY/ F EBRUA RY 2015 | MCDM AG.COM
