An existing building that was originally planned to be the Healthsouth Digital Hospital is being finished-out as a 372-bed replacement hospital for the existing Trinity Medical Center, approximately eight miles away. The intent is to reuse as much of the completed work in the building that meets code and will function for the new program, such as the lower floor framing and the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing rough-ins. Currently, 220 beds have been completed on the fifth through ninth floors, including 20 intensive care beds and 200 medical/surgical beds that require bringing up to code and ADA compliance.
Floors 10 and 11 will be built out as patient floors, with the 12th remaining shelled. Some of the lower floors will also have beds that will make up the balance of the 372-bed total. The main 10-level parking deck will house all the public and staff parking, over 2,909 cars. An eight-story medical office building will be constructed on top of five levels of parking and will access the hospital through an enclosed connector on the second floor. Contained within the MOB will be administrative and business offices, women’s diagnostics, a sleep lab, clinic space, and leased space.
The newest campus addition is a freestanding cancer center that accommodates radiation therapy, infusion treatment and clinic space to provide patients with full-service oncology care. The building is designed for future vertical and horizontal expansion, allowing each department to expand with minimal disruption to services.
