HFS was the prime A-E design firm for the new fourth floor addition to Ward G, creating a consolidated outpatient cancer clinic utilizing the Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) Space Module Design Guide. This multi-phased project replaced an outdated existing facility with an entirely new unit to deliver a Cancer Care Center of Excellence, capitalizing on innovative health care delivery methods. The new 19,800-SF cancer center included an enclosed bridge between the new ward and the existing tower and was designed to expand vertically to seven floors to match the main tower in the future.
HFS performed all the required A-E design services, including:
- Field surveys and investigations of existing structural and utility systems
- Security monitoring and access control
- Complete contract drawings and specifications
- Cost estimates
- Critical path schedule
As a part of the project, the HFS Team replaced the existing hydraulic elevators with new traction elevators to serve the new height and prepare for future vertical expansion. The infusion area provides wireless network connectivity and charging ports for electronic devices in the patient care and waiting areas.
