Lessons Learned From a Major Surgical Tower and Infrastructure Expansion
Principal, TLC Engineering Solutions
Healthcare Architect, Hunton Brady Architects
Session will outline design requirements and lessons learned from a major, metropolitan hospital addition to provide 24 new ORs (with 6 future ORs included) and 90+ new patient beds. New Operating Rooms include full robotic capability and full OR integration systems in each OR. This presented multiple design challenges to integrate these technologies. Also, this project provided the design of all Operating Rooms on a dedicated floor with Pre-Op/PACU spaces on a separate floor (with sterile elevator system between these two floors). This is one of the first inpatient hospitals to provide separate dedicated floors for surgery and Pre/Post Operative services. Also included in this project was a new Central Energy Plant designed for the new 300,000+ sf surgical tower with capacity to help backfeed mechanical/electrical services (including emergency power) for the existing 700,000 sf existing hospital).
