RRMC modernized their 56-acre campus with a phased replace-in-place of existing facilities. The Physical Transition Project included a new Emergency Department and Level II Trauma Center with 42 private rooms and a freestanding Outpatient Surgery Center. The existing building was re-clad with new windows and exterior finishes. The project included extensive site work with several new parking lots, internal roadways and a new entrance. The second phase included an employee parking garage, Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Care Unit, and renovations to the existing 570-bed hospital.
The newest project doubled the size of the existing Central Energy Plant with a utility bridge extending across the existing roof via a structural steel truss system. The enhanced plant supports a new five-story, 251,380 square foot Surgical Pavilion with 68 patient beds, 13 general surgery suites, associated pre/op and post/op areas, reception, pharmacy, and shell space above for two more floors of patient bed rooms.
