The Ross County MOB consisted of the renovation of an existing strip mall space that was converted into a medical office building with a lab, general surgery, pain management, and orthopedics space, among others. This space was fully fit out in two phases with nearly all walls consisting of DIRTT Modular Walls and with a complete AcornVac Vacuum sanitary waste system.
A 22,000 SF expansion and renovation of the existing 18,077 SF 2nd floor in the West Wing of the University Hospital East facility. The expanded facility meets new NFPA/FGI requirements and regulations, allows for additional surgical capacity, and consolidated imaging operational efficiency. The entire space was designed and built around improving patient experience with modalities specific to enhancing patient outcomes and plays a critical role in the Wexner Medical Center’s program.
The radiology suite includes a Siemens CT Go as well as a new Siemens Sola MRI. The OR Suite consists of three operating rooms and one hybrid OR complete with a robotic Pheno arm for imaging.
Southeastern Ohio Regional Medical Center is an existing hospital in Cambridge, OH. Elford was hired as the Construction Manager to build an addition to the existing hospital. This 13,300 SF addition is designated as the Cancer Center for the hospital and includes a 1,100 SF connector from the new space to the existing hospital. The Cancer Center is home to private and semi-private infusion bays for cancer patients to receive chemotherapy treatment, exam rooms, offices for hospital staff, and a state-of-the-art linear accelerator room. This new facility brings critical cancer care to the Eastern parts of Ohio that did not have these critical services previously.
This project consisted of a two (2) story, 30,000 SF Medical Office Building (MOB) on the O’Bleness Hospital Campus. The new facility consolidates disparate primary care practices, accommodates the expansion of the Family Practice Residency Clinic, and includes a 5,000 SF shelled space to allow for future growth.
This project included the construction of a new 56,575 SF forensic science center. The building was designed to include an administrative office, training spaces, and state-of-the-art autopsy, toxicology, and instrument laboratories. The new facility includes all space as required for a modern, regional type, certified Coroner’s Office:
- Autopsy Site: (8) BSL2 stations
- Separate Body Cooler & Freezer (walk-in units)
- Histology Lab/Tissue Recovery
- Administrative/staff support
- Public lobby/conference
- Mass Casualty
- Toxicology and Instrument Labs
The new 18th Street Center replaced the existing childcare facilities and provides infant, toddler, preschool, and limited kindergarten care for children of Nationwide Children’s Hospital staff. The project was constructed in two phases and is built on the site of the previous center and the adjacent NCH owned parking lot. The program included comprehensive daycare services, playgrounds, drop off, and staff parking lot.
The existing center maintained continuous operations during construction. Once the newly constructed Phase 1 areas were completed and occupied, Phase 2 work commenced with the demolition of the existing center and completion of the childcare center and new staff parking lot.
This project includes a new 92,000 SF pavilion that will focus on family care. The anchor for the facility will be a birthing center that doubles the birthing suites from four to eight and adds a surgical room for cesarean births. This one-stop family medical center will include pediatrics, family practice physicians, women’s health providers, cardiology, cardiac rehab, a bridge to the bed tower and a below grade courtyard. The project also includes 2,000 SF of renovation to the existing medical pavilion.
OhioHealth Corporation is developing a network of freestanding emergency departments across central Ohio to improve care to the community. Elford constructed two emergency departments, both with a very aggressive time frame. The facilities are located in highly visible and busy traffic areas with easy access for patients/visitors. The floor plan and layout will allow cross-functional teams to be more responsive and provide a more retail patient experience.
Each building is approximately 8,800 SF and staffed by emergency physicians 24/7. The new facilities are made up of eight private patient rooms and were designed with large windows to bring in ample natural light. Services include a walk-in and ambulance entrances, a CT scanner, a pharmacy and a laboratory.
This was a 104,000 SF inpatient bed and surgery addition project, known throughout construction as Project BRIGHT (Build, Revitalize and Innovate for a Greater Healthcare Tomorrow). The design of the new addition includes 30 private patient rooms, six which are ICU capable. These rooms are acuity-adaptable, an emerging care model in which the patient is cared for in the same room from admission through discharge. The 10 new operating rooms include nine standard and one large 1,150 square foot hybrid operating room providing dual use for surgery as well as interventional imaging. The design capitalized on exterior views and natural light which aids in the healing process. To carry this concept from public to private spaces, a green roof is visible from the second floor patient rooms.
Building a surgery center of this magnitude in 18 months required the design-build team to expedite the project timeline by releasing the final design documents in six phases also known as “fast-tracking”, which reduced the overall project timeline by 6 months. The new surgical tower tied into six existing floors of the main hospital, which were sealed airtight from floor to deck. At each floor, temporary partitions were built with installed HEPA filters to ensure negative air pressure was maintained. Additionally, windows were carved into the walls to allow for natural light during construction. Due to the team’s live cost analysis and constant monitoring of activities, the project was completed under the original GMP.
A new 325,000 SF hospital on an 89-acre campus, including a 24-hour full-service Emergency Department with 32 beds, outpatient and inpatient Surgical services, inpatient Medical services, Women’s Health Department with 34 maternity/nursery beds, 60 Medical/Surgical/ICU beds with a link to OhioHealth’s eICU remote monitoring system, full Diagnostic and Imaging Center, Pharmacy, Laboratory, 17 Gardens (both interior and exterior) and a separate Central Energy Plant including 3-1,250 kw generators. This project utilized sustainable design practices and is a member of the Pebble Project Initiative.
