The new Sibley will include an expanded Emergency Department, inpatient pharmacies, 50 postpartum rooms and an 18-bay special care nursery.
The new, larger Emergency Department will be sized for 45,000 projected annual visits and includes new treatment bays and waiting areas. Space will be also be allotted to house a new central chiller plant and consolidation of all emergency generators. A new stair, elevator and ramp for circulation will also be added to an existing parking garage.
The New Sibley is a continuation of Sibley Memorial Hospital’s long-range master plan. This project will accommodate projected increases in annual demand for emergency services, imaging and diagnostic services, outpatient services and medical oncology. The New Sibley was designed and will be constructed to achieve LEED-Silver Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
