Representatives from Atrium Health NorthEast recently celebrated the grand opening of the hospital’s new Heart and Vascular Tower in Concord, North Carolina. The project team included general contractor Robins & Morton and architect Wright McGraw Beyer.
The project’s scope includes a new 60-bed, 163,000-square-foot patient tower, in addition to infrastructure upgrades and a cardio vascular operating room renovation in the surgery department. The tower will be the new home of the Sanger Heart and Vascular Institute and will also house interventional radiology services, new catheterization labs, electrophysiology labs, pre- and post-op care services and a cardiovascular intensive care unit.
Throughout design, the project delivery team not only incorporated hospital staff feedback on accessibility and efficiency, but also sourced the community, former patients and caretakers for feedback on layout. As a result, the facility will be laid out intuitively, allowing patients and care teams to traverse floors quickly and easily.
