Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital Plans $49M Modernization

On the heels of its 50th anniversary last year, Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital, Virginia Beach, Virginia, is looking ahead.

In February 2017 the hospital will begin a $49-million modernization of patient care areas and infrastructure. Three intensive care units will be consolidated into one 24-bed ICU. Six operating rooms in use since 1983 will be replaced in a newly constructed surgery wing and four other ORs will be renovated. Sterile support areas will be expanded and upgraded. Two new elevators will connect the OR suite with the consolidated ICU a floor above. The Post Anesthesia Care Unit will be expanded and renovated to improve patient flow.

In addition, the hospital’s central utilities plant will be modernized and its emergency generators replaced. Finally, locker rooms and lounge areas for physicians and staff will be modernized. The project is scheduled to last about 30 months and create 75-100 construction jobs during peak activity.

Architect is Kahler Slater. General Contractor is Whiting-Turner.
