New:

Overview

The 110,000 square foot expansion added a 24-bed women and children’s unit and increased the exams rooms in the emergency department to 58 beds. The four-story building is connected to the existing hospital through a pathway on the first floor. Designed to comfortably accommodate future growth, the facility has two shelled floors and a structure that can be expanded to six floors.

Features

The expansion included an extensive renovation of the existing central energy plant. A 500-ton chiller and a cooling tower were replaced with energy-efficient equipment. Three 750-ton chillers and a cooling tower were rebuilt to provide improved reliability and energy efficiency. Three temporary chillers were used to supply cooling capacity to the existing facility during modifications to the plant. A new 1250kW generator was added to provide additional emergency power for the hospital’s existing chilled water system while two paralleled 750kW generators (designed for a future third generator) were provided to support the emergency department addition.
