The new Center for Advanced Surgical Services (CASS) building’s role is to relieve a variety of Grady Memorial Hospital’s services, providing some much needed breathing room for the main building. The CASS building will contain a dedicated ambulatory surgical center with eight operating rooms, five endoscopy rooms, a sterile processing department, PACU, ENT department, imaging and gastrointestinal spaces, four radiology rooms, women’s services, and a cancer care center.
The building totals 10 floors and boasts a 700-space parking garage. The electrical infrastructure is designed to allow for future installation of car chargers, which could serve up to 20% of the parking spaces.
Both the chiller and generator systems are designed for N+1 redundancy. With the proposed generator setup, the building can function on generator power for up to 72 hours.
