Layton Construction's Health Care Group broke ground in July on a vertical expansion and renovation project to College Station Medical Center in College Station, Texas that includes adding nearly 30,000 square feet to the hospital above the existing two-level tower and renovating an additional 18,000 square feet of the facility. The project is scheduled to be complete in late 2011.
The majority of the project involves expanding the medical center's Women's Pavilion. Layton will complete a 30,000-square-foot vertical expansion and an 8,200-square-foot renovation to the existing Women's Center to provide the hospital with a new Women's Center. The renovation and expansion will double the hospital's nursery and delivery rooms. The added third floor will include two full-term nurseries, 17 postpartum rooms and 13 private gynecology rooms. The renovation will convert the existing postpartum rooms to 13 private NICU rooms for babies and their families, four additional labor and delivery rooms (giving the hospital a total of 10) and four new antepartum rooms.
Additionally, the project includes a 7,500-square-foot renovation to the hospital's lab/emergency department (ED). Crews will add additional space to the emergency department, taking it from 13 beds to 19 beds. Part of the new space will be dedicated to a new nursing station and the addition of six fast track rooms. The ED renovation will take place after a 4,000-square-foot lab is relocated from the emergency department to an adjacent medical office building.
The project also includes a 4,000-square-foot renovation to the hospital's surgical services. Two new operating rooms will be added, equipped with the latest surgical technology and capable of handling heart surgeries, bringing the total number of operating rooms to eight.
