The six-story, 120-bed hospital has an emergency department, radiology, outpatient surgery and a women’s center. Its 92 suites include 12 maternity, eight intensive care unit suites, and an 18-bed day stay area. The hospital was expanded by adding an eight-story, 62-bed patient tower as well as a five-story medical office building with an ambulatory surgical center.
Energy-efficiency and flexibility were key goals in designing the central energy plant. Two high-efficiency 1,200-ton chillers and two dual-cell cooling towers supply the 3,500-ton cooling load. A 15-ton chiller is dedicated to the removal of heat generated from the high-powered MRI equipment. Backup power is supplied by two emergency generators, one a 1,500-kW and the other a 2.5-mW.
