Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin Integrated Procedural Platform Awarded Best Project of 2019

The Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin Integrated Procedural Platform, one of only a few surgical and interventional care areas of its kind in the country, was awarded Best Health Care Project 2019 by Engineering News-Record Midwest.

We served as the lead design firm and structural engineer for this space containing more than 30 operating rooms, four catheterization rooms, eight radiology suites, imaging areas along with more than 40 post-anesthesia care units. The configuration of this space allows for a streamlined workflow along with state-of-the-art surgical technology. Patient safety, quality and efficiency were top priorities for this project.

We worked closely with construction manager Mortenson on a tight schedule (it was built in 32 months) and with no patient care interruptions (more than 1,400 area-specific shutdowns were done without negative impacts).

Ultimately, this centrally located, single-floor platform consolidated Froedtert’s diagnostic, surgical and post-op facilities to be able to provide more complex medical care in an accessible and efficient space.
