The project is being implemented using the Integrated Design/Build (D/B) delivery method and the project has begun the Project Definition Phase. Work has included formation of project Working Groups, consisting of medical and nursing staff representatives, hospital administration, and facilities management personnel. The team has started the Programming/Program Validation process with the project stakeholders as well as developing operational flow concepts, documenting existing building system conditions, and developing the initial cost models. Selection of the Mechanical and Electrical trade partners has also begun so that these entities can be integrated into this phase of the project.
The project will renovate approximately 23,000 SF of existing space in three adjoining wings and build approximately 3,000 SF of new space to house a new C-section suite and a dedicated waiting area for the Center. The project will be phased to allow continued operations in the balance of the unit and the integration of the new elements as they are completed. The new space is targeted to support 2,500 births per year, allow for the addition of necessary service providers, and contribute positively to both the annual revenues attributable to childbirth deliveries and other system-wide services.
