8 Medical Construction & Design | M AY/ J U N E 2018 | MCDM AG.COM Projects completed & upcoming A new hybrid operating room, designed by Pulse Design Group and constructed by general contractor United Excel, has opened at Shawnee Mission Medical Center in Merriam, Kansas. The 3,550-square- foot surgical space was converted from an outdated clinical area and is the city's largest hybrid operating room. The mul- tidisciplinary space allows healthcare professionals from different specialties to treat patients in the same location. Architectural details include a fl ex- ible fl oor plan developed and vetted by nurses and physicians with the aid of virtual reality, and custom solid surface casework provided and an elevated control desk for optimal patient viewing. The advanced room design allows for a patient to transi- tion from an interventional catheter-based procedure to a surgical procedure without being transported to another setting. HOSPITAL New Patient Tower, Renovations Complete for Mercy Hospital Jefferson Surrounding Landscape Inspires Expansion, Renovation Design of Henrico DoctorsÕ Hospital An extensive renovation has recently been completed at Henrico Doc- tors' Hospital in Richmond, Virginia aimed at better serving the hospi- tal's women and children patients. Gresham, Smith and Partners served as architect on the project. The general contractor was Brasfi eld & Gorrie. The project design includes more than 60,000 square feet of renovated space and a 20,000-square-foot expan- sion, including a dedicated entrance and lobby, additional labor and deliv- ery rooms and a state-of-the-art Level III neonatal intensive care unit. The consolidation of the NICU, relocation of postpartum rooms, conversion of the fourth fl oor into gynecology and new L&D rooms provide the additional capacity and operational effi ciency needed to serve the community. The new curved lobby with wood walls makes a contemporary, yet elegant statement, creating a strong identity for the women's entrance. The unique geometry extends to the exterior. The facility was inspired by the surrounding landscape and lever- ages local stone on the exterior near the entrance and in the lobby to elicit a sense of place. The LDR rooms feature color-changing LED lights, which mimic the color temperature of light throughout the day. Occupants can adjust the color and color temperature. Hybrid OR Opens at Shawnee Mission Medical Center Mercy Hospital: Justin Cardoza/Bates Architects & McCarthy Building Companies A new three-story, 120,000-square- foot patient building on the campus of Mercy Hospital Jeff erson in Crystal City, Missouri is complete. Constructed to the south of the existing hospital facility, the $73-million tower features 90 private patient rooms and is designed to accommodate a potential vertical expansion to add new patient fl oors in the future. McCarthy served as construction manager for the expansion project. Bates Architects designed the new patient tower and Heideman Associates served as MEP engineer. The project also involved renovating the hospital's main entrance to improve patient and visitor access. The new main entrance features a covered canopy, full window lantern element, refl ecting pond and stone and brick façade. Inside, patients and visitors experience improved way- fi nding and new corridors that effi ciently connect the emergency department, imag- ing, surgical services and admitting areas. The construction team leveraged tech- nology, including full Building Informa- tion Modeling for mechanical, electrical and plumbing coordination, to facilitate construction effi ciency and accuracy.
