Project Notes

The $800M, 13-story hospital facility on the campus covers 1.3 million square feet and has accommodations for 460 patients.

The Oldcastle Modular prefab bathroom units were part of an innovative approach by the project team to meet a tight schedule in the healthcare construction industry where schedules are typically more lengthly than other industries.

The finished structure will feature all-private patient rooms that can accommodate friends and family, an electronic health records system, robotics in the operating rooms, in-room video conferencing, 24 surgical suites and 10 interventional cardiology suites.  Additionally, to meet its mission as a teaching hospital, the project features special space provisions throughout the hospital that facilitate teaching as well as the academic and clinical environments.
