To accomplish the desired renovations to the Admitting and Emergency Departments while it remained fully operational, Hoar Construction approached this project in phases.
The main entrance of the hospital and elevator lobby was converted into a new Admitting area with a revamped Pre-Admissions Testing area nearby. This required significant interior demolition work and rerouting of some services directly above the facility’s critical computer systems area. The facility’s chest pain and emergency departments were expanded and renovated. In addition to interior demolition, this phase required the removal of approximately 200 lineal feet of the exterior walls, the installation of deep foundations next to basement space of the building, and rerouting of services directly above the facility’s nuclear medicine lab areas. The third phase involved renovation to the existing emergency department, a complete interior demolition, and some rework adjacent to the facility’s oncology clinic. Planning and communication with the owner were critical. Understanding the nature of healthcare delivery and believing that construction takes a back seat to the hospital’s mission, Hoar developed a very positive relationship with the client and hospital staff, ensuring ICRA requirements were met and life safety issues were not compromised.
