Description: This project included new construction for a 47-bed addition and shelled space for seven general emergency rooms and two resuscitation rooms. The new emergency department resides within a single-level, 33,775-square-foot infill addition structure that connects the existing hospital, women's center and Pepin Heart Institute. The infill addition converts a 25,025-square-foot footprint of the first-level Women's Center. In order to make room for the new department, a separate new 5,510- square-foot single level addition to the existing Women's Center structure was built to the northwest. This allowed for the renovation of 10,275 square feet of adjacent first level space within the existing Women's Center and hospital structures, as well as the relocation of a 3,880-square-foot loading dock. The hospital supply chain delivery area was also be renovated to accommodate the new loading dock. In 2015, this project won ENR Southeast's Best Healthcare project award and ABC Alabama's Excellence in Construction award.
