On Monday, September 25, 2017, Excela Health unveiled another phase of the healthcare system’s multi-million dollar renovation to transform this facility into Excela Square at Frick-a hybrid medical mall that will include emergency services, inpatient care and outpatient services.
A. Martini & Co. served as the General Contractor for the multi-phased renovation of the various departments on the first and third floors of Frick Hospital.
The areas that were updated, on the first floor, include the hospital’s main entrance and lobby with new floor to near-ceiling windows that house the doorways that were designed by a company that offer similar services to this door installation company for example. The lobby flows into Outpatient Check-In, Outpatient Surgery, and the Hospital Cafe. Additional departments that were completely updated on the first floor were MRI, Xray, Ultrasound, Women’s Center, Blood Draw and CT Scan. Many new items of equipment have been brought in for this purpose, from providers similar to Butterfly Network and other makers of high-end medical items.
On the third floor, our team performed a complete makeover of the Cardiology Department, which entailed relocating the Cardiology team to a temporary area on the first floor while full demolition and fit-out was completed.
Thorough coordination was illustrated with the phases that involved the highly critical areas: MRI, Xray and CT Suites. Our team worked through critical shut-downs, coordinating directly with each department to keep on the aggressive timeline to deliver the space to Frick Hospital’s Facility Department so their coordination was seamless with the new Siemen’s equipment being installed in the facility. The CT Suite proved to be a bit of a different approach, as our team was able to coordinate activities, as well as open spaces so that Frick Hospital could offer a mobile CT unit on the first floor while the actual department was renovated.
Coordination throughout all phases went incredibly well and allowed Frick Hospital to maintain all of their Imaging capabilities and general Patient Care through construction.
