Tradition Medical Center

Tradition Medical Center relied on the experience of Robins & Morton to succeed with a three-phase expansion and renovation that could satisfy the rapidly increasing population of Port St. Lucie, Florida. The $76 million high-risk project entailed a vertical expansion built directly on top of and aligned with the existing hospital structure. Directly below the construction site was a maternity department, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and a cardiac catheter lab, which required careful planning that would keep these units fully functioning and safe.

Robins & Morton, having the experience gained through other large projects in occupied, acute-care hospitals, decided on a three-phase expansion and renovation. This project required noise and vibration mitigation, quality control, months of pre-construction planning, infection control and the utilization of lean construction across disciplines. These accommodations minimized the project’s effects on health and healing within the occupied facilities.

Upon completion of the project, Tradition Medical Center doubled available beds from 90 to 180, as well as expanded maternity and NICU services, an intensive-care unit, and an 18-bed progressive care unit to help transition patients from the ICU to a traditional medical-surgical unit.
