"Multiple challenges arose throughout the construction of this project, but with a dedicated project team working closely together, the project was successfully delivered within budget and ahead of schedule, with a key focus on patient care," said Greg L. Butz, President and CEO of Alvin H. Butz, Inc.

The two-wing addition was constructed on a tight urban site with four-stories built above an existing active emergency department and a new four-story wing with a deep basement below.

Features of the addition included:

  • 18-bed Intensive/Critical Care Unit
  • OR Suite with 14 Operating Rooms
  • Pedestrian Sky Bridge
  • New Clinic
  • Expansive Main Lobby

Renovations included an Electrophysiology lab, a Pre- and Post-Operative procedure unit, a Post-Anesthesia Care Unit, a G.I. suite and a new Oncology suite.
