10 Medical Construction & Design | NOV EMBER / DECEMBER 2017 | MCDM AG.COM Topping-Off Ceremony Held for North Shore Medical Center A topping-off ceremony to mark the comple- tion of the structural steel framing of the new Salem, Massachusetts campus of North Shore Medical Center was recently held. The project is expected to be occupied by fall 2019. The $207-million project includes a new 111,600-square-foot building for the emergency department and a family centered medical/surgical inpatient unit, as well as an 111,100-square- foot renovation of the former Spaulding North Shore building to expand NSMC's behavioral health services for children, adolescents, adults and seniors. Both buildings are targeting LEED Silver certifi cation. The project team includes Shepley Bulfi nch and Walsh Brothers, Inc. Projects completed & upcoming Akron: Pease Photography Critical Access Grand Opening Ceremony Held for New Hospital in Georgia InMed Group recently held a grand opening ceremony for Mountain Lakes Medical Center in Clayton, Georgia. The project team included Hoar Construction and CDH Partners. The 67,000-square-foot critical access community hospital replaces an outdated facility built in the 1970s. The facility includes 25 inpatient beds, outpatient services, an emergency department, dietary, operating rooms, pharmacy, lab, physical therapy and radiology departments. From the breezeway protruding through the building to the "club level" (section for administrative suites), every feature of the facility adds a human touch that transcends clinical space. Located on top of a mountain, patients can enjoy the views of north Georgia and the city of Clayton from their rooms. The hospital serves Rabun County and communities throughout Northeast Georgia. P3 Delivers VA Butler Health Care Center, Puts Veterans 1st The Veterans Administration Butler Health Care Center creates a new home for the outpatient needs of nearly 20,000 western Pennsylvania veterans. Designed to support the VA's new patient-centered community care (P3) model, the facility responds to a broad spectrum of veterans' needs. The building is located 1.4 miles from its previous location in a former tuberculosis sanitarium built in 1938. The new building houses nine patient- aligned care team areas. Each PACT includes exams rooms with two doors. The patient enters one, and healthcare providers use the other door. Each PACT, including one exclusively for women, features its own waiting area. The interior design of the VA Butler HCC takes its cue from the area's farmland and manufacturing heritage. Distinctive curved ceilings refl ect the lush rolling landscape, while a grand metal and glass staircase honors the area's industrial strength. Metal, glass and smooth wood accents throughout balance the manufactured with nature and establish an open, airy feel. The public-private partnership team included Stantec, Cambridge Healthcare Solutions PA and Mascaro Construction Company. A 55,800-square-foot expansion proj- ect for Akron Children's Hospital Ma- honing Valley in Boardman, Ohio has recently been completed. The project team includes Hasenstab Architects and Murphy Contracting Company. The addition includes 47 new exam rooms universally designed to accommo- date both visiting specialists and full-time practices. Branding elements from the Kay Jewelers Pavilion project were implemented into the new addition to create continuity between the campuses, but with a diff er- ent theme to refl ect the community Akron Children's Mahoning Valley serves. The "re-connecting to nature" theme incorporates butterfl ies, birds and turtles to create a brightly colored space for children to explore. Graphics, pictures, textiles and signs off er opportunities for education, wayfi nding and positive distraction. Materials emulate wood, water and other natural elements.
