Focus Growth Expansion
Lancaster General Health Women and Babies Hospital
Phase I included adding eight isolettes and associated rooms for the Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Women & Babies Hospital. This renovation was completed working adjacent to the continuously operating NICU. Along with the eight isolettes, this renovation also added a family bonding area, two bedrooms, shower facilities, and a computer area.
Construction of a 25,000 SF addition that was built on top of and adjacent to a fully-operational facility brought its own set of challenges. All utility shutdowns were coordinated with the units surrounding the construction and temporary walls were built to ensure air quality control. The new addition added 13 couplet care (postpartum) rooms, two nurseries, circumcision room, and pharmacy.
