Atrium Health Carolina Medical Center (CMC) Surgical Modernization
Surgery, NICU, and Maternity
This surgical project was a multi-year, multi-phased comprehensive modernization of the entire surgery department, which touched more than 50 percent of the medical center’s entire footprint.
Our engineering staff performed an extensive mechanical and electrical (MEP) infrastructure systems assessment to set the scope of work required and to aid in determining the phasing of the project. The design and construction consisted of 18 major phases and two separate new construction phases. Each new construction phase included space for six state-of-the-art operating rooms with the latest integration technology. (10 were built with two shell spaces for future ORs.) The project included two Hybrid ORs with bi-plane imaging equipment. The mechanical-electrical rooms were located directly above the ORs, which housed all the systems needed to serve the OR spaces. All equipment maintenance and repairs are accomplished without entering the sterile spaces. In addition to the surgical suites, 120,000 square-feet of existing hospital space were renovated. The renovations included a new Central Sterile Department, 52-bed PACU, 28-bed Pre-Op, plus support spaces.
