Pulmonary & GI Remodel

The Pulmonary and GI Remodel project included the renovation of the existing 11,000 SF. operating rooms on the second floor of the east wing of the main hospital. The goal was to convert the space into a Pulmonary and GI Suite.

The project was completed in two phases. The demolition phase created a shell space that removed the hazardous material from the area. The remodel phase built back the space with a brand-new suite.

The suite included the following new specialized areas: four GI procedure rooms, two advanced GI procedure rooms with Artis Zee imaging equipment, two bronchoscopy procedure rooms, scope processing rooms for decontamination, sterilization, and storage, charge Nurse work area, IDF room, mechanical room and equipment and supply storage.

In order to alleviate the fire-rated ceiling challenges in the east wing, HY Architects analyzed the building to justify the existing deck as 2-hour fire rated. This allowed the project to be classified as a care suite. This analysis is now being used on other projects in the east wing.
