St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center: Surgery Project

Brighton, MA

The goal of this project was to create 2 new Operating Rooms (OR) in the currently unused former SICU suite. The new OR Suite would be approximately 2,283 SF and located on the 3rd floor of the CMP Building.  The proposed renovation consisted of adding one OR designated as a hybrid vascular OR (744 sf) and a second OR that will act as a standard OR (731 sf). This renovation provided the hospital with the ability to utilize this space to increase patient care and volume of patient surgeries. Renovation of the space was single phase in an unoccupied space, with work performed during normal daytime hours with limited off-hours activities. Along with the construction of the 2 ORs, new storage, clean utility, and soiled utility support spaces were constructed. The existing HVAC system that was serving the space could not support the 2 new ORs and needed to be supplemented. A new 5000 CFM dedicated RTU was installed to provide the required air changes per hour to the space. Existing above ceiling MEP systems and above laboratory piping were relocated. The ORs required new medical equipment and FF&E.  Existing OR equipment was not to be reused in the new space.
