As part of Pinnacle Health System’s Consolidation and Modernization Project, Harrisburg Hospital included major additions and renovations. In joint venture with The Schunkewitz Partnership of New York, Murray Associates provided design services for this ambitious project which spanned five years at a construction cost of over $61 million.
In order to maintain full operation of the facility, the project was divided into 26 separate phases. The project began with a complete upgrade to all of the electrical and mechanical infrastructure, including main building power, fuel systems, steam systems, water systems, communications, nurse call and code blue, ATC, and emergency power.
Additions to the facility included a 34,000 square foot, six-story patient tower, a 7,100 square foot addition at the third floor level to house five new operating rooms, and a 4-level, 272-car parking facility.
Site conditions would not allow additional on-grade construction, so a two-story 7,800 square foot space was built beneath the existing nine-story structure to accommodate imaging and dialysis functions. This challenging phase involved substantial structural work on the existing foundations and building columns.
Design and construction of the new patient tower was challenging as well, as it consists of floors five through ten and is situated above the existing third floor, housing active operating rooms which were required to function without lost time.
Over 230,000 square feet of the 457,000 square foot facility was renovated, involving total gut and rebuilding of virtually all acute care and procedure areas along with patient rooms and support areas.
