BSA LifeStructures was engaged to update the existing Facility Master Plan with a focus on the acute care environment. The planning engagement included a current state assessment of facilities and operations, data analysis, a high level review of medical equipment, and infrastructure upgrades to building systems.
From the current state assessment, several priorities for the Facility Master Plan update were established. The primary areas studied included inpatient care, emergency department, imaging, surgery and parking. For inpatient care, the plan called for converting all inpatient rooms to private rooms and increasing the standard patient room size to 300 net square feet per bed. Planning for the Emergency Department consolidated the configuration from four separate work areas to three areas. All Interventional Radiology, Cardiology and Vascular procedures were centralized within one building.
