An existing building that was originally planned to be the Healthsouth Digital Hospital was finished-out as a 402-bed replacement hospital for the existing Trinity Medical Center, approximately eight miles away.
The intent was to reuse as much of the completed work in the building as possible that met code and could function for the new program, such as the lower floor framing and the mechanical/electrical/plumbing rough-in. Completed in the first phase, there are 220 beds on the fifth through ninth floors, which include 20 intensive care beds and 200 medical/surgical beds that were brought up to code and ADA compliance.
Floors 10 and 11 were built out as patient floors during the first phase of the project, while the second phase added an additional 30 beds to the previous shelled space on the 12th floor.
The main 10-level parking deck houses all public and staff parking for 2,909 cars for both the hospital and medical office building. An eight-story medical office building is constructed on top of five levels of parking. An enclosed connector to the hospital can be accessed on the second floor. Contained within the MOB are administrative and business offices, women’s diagnostics, sleep lab, clinic space and leased space.
