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.

A Collaborative Approach

A culture of innovation, transparency and inclusion was integral to the success of the complex, 167,000-square-foot Tradition Medical Center expansion and renovation project.

From the outset of the project, Robins & Morton, Martin Health, CBRE Healthcare and HKS Architects established a collaborative culture, beginning with an alignment meeting to discuss the project-specific values, or conditions of satisfaction. When construction began, Robins & Morton held onboarding sessions for all trade contractors, highlighting the importance of the project to the community, and providing a platform for the discussion of ideas and expectations. To further promote the established environment, team members also co-located onsite.

Using these Lean tools and philosophies, the project team successfully delivered the expansion project to Martin Health.
