The construction team has begun placing the steel structure together. Several of our team members were fortunate to attend a ceremony to mark the moment in person earlier this month.
The RUMC expansion and renovation is a multi-phase revitalization of the existing medical center and also a key branding opportunity for the system. Our team helped with three key components, including an expanded emergency department (ED), an operating room (OR) surgical fit-out and a critical care unit (CCU) expansion. Here is more information about each piece of the expansion project:
- The new ED is strategically placed to connect with the existing hospital’s imaging department and capitalize on other key program adjacencies. It implements a dual-track model that filters patients into acute-care and lower-acuity areas to improve patient and staff flow, elevates care, ensures operational efficiencies, and allows for future adaptability.
- The OR surgical fit-out consists of 10 operating rooms and increases overall OR room sizes, increases flow and program efficiency and ensures RUMC can provide leading-edge services throughout the space. It is located on the second floor of the expansion and engages with the existing surgical department for synergies.
- The MICU expansion ensures RUMC can provide state-of-the-art critical care across 14 private rooms. It also enables futures growth and expansion of the Surgical Intensive Care Unit on the second level of the expansion and will greatly increase operating efficiencies in the hospital.
This expansion project is set to bolster care possibilities in the region. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with RUMC as they forge the future of patient experience and care delivery.
