Phased to Remain Operational During Construction

description

Due to growth and the need for additional services, the Mid America Heart Institute underwent a phased relocation into its own 7-story building that connects to the existing hospital.

The first phase included a new energy center and additional employee parking structure to accommodate the existing facility and foreseeable future growth. This phase required planning logistics to keep the existing hospital running during construction and switching over to the new system while the former energy center was demolished.

The second phase opened the Cardiac Women’s Center as well as other new departments within the hospital, all of which remained operational during construction.

The final phase was the addition of new surgical and interventional suites. The kitchen/dining was eliminated from the main hospital and relocated to the new tower. The new a la carte kitchen serves the entire campus.
