On June 30th, Memorial Hospital of Carbondale celebrated the Grand Opening of their new expansion. For this project, Alberici constructed a 51,887-square-foot addition, including a three-story patient tower expansion and an operating room expansion. The team also performed significant renovation work throughout the hospital.
The expansion included a one-story concrete addition to the surgery department as well as a three-story patient tower constructed over existing operating room ancillary services. The ground floor addition added operating rooms and a post anesthesia care unit, while the vertical expansion included same day surgery, ICU patient rooms and a shell space. A seven-phase renovation of the existing hospital included ancillary surgical services, central sterile, materials management and a pharmacy.
