The newly renovated and expanded DMC Surgical Center includes a new “flagship” Hybrid Surgical Suite and four new state-of-the-art operating rooms, along with completely updated support facilities, paperless electronic information systems, and several new comfort-orientated “family-style” privacy areas for patients undergoing both extended stay and same-day surgery. Also, OR support areas such as staff locker rooms, offices and material storage areas were upgraded and enlarged. This fourteen month, multi-phase project included renovations to several areas throughout the hospital including the relocation of the existing lower level lab services adjacent to the surgery department and consolidation of the remaining lab services into a new large Central Lab facility within the hospital.
Project challenges include the management of multiple simultaneous phases of construction involving select demolition, renovations, temporary use and final use areas in a busy hospital environment. Mechanical and electrical design was coordinated between the project’s design-assist trade contractors, Roncelli, DMC, and the project A/E.
