SSOE Group recently provided architectural, engineering, mechanical, electrical and fire protection design services to Henry Ford Macomb Hospital for its newly opened surgical department expansion project in Clinton Township, Michigan.
The expansion project included a 1,000-square-foot hybrid operating room that converts to general surgery in minutes, and six additional 800-square-foot operating rooms capable of handling anything from orthopedic surgery to eye surgery—along with a separate cardiovascular operating and perfusion room—more than doubling the size of previous operating spaces. Notably, the hospital’s new hybrid operating room is the first of its kind in Macomb County.
The expansion encompassed a combination of projects, leading up to the surgical department. Projects included relocating and expanding the central sterile processing department, inpatient pharmacy, catheterization and interventional radiology department and pre- and post-operative patient holding. The phasing of the projects was pivotal in maintaining a fully operational facility and, in turn, the development of a successful project.
In addition to the extra space, new technology and functional upgrades, SSOE also incorporated large murals along the walls of the corridor featuring the beautiful Great Lake State to enhance the patient experience.
Roncelli served as general contractor on the project.
