Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital recently broke ground on a major expansion and renovation project, in Santa Rosa, that will enhance access to acute hospital services, continuing to meet the evolving needs of the growing Northern California region. Design of the $158-million project is being led by Stantec, which is helping to deliver the project through an Integrated Project Delivery approach, alongside general contractor HerreroBoldt.
The major expansion and renovation will add more than 67,000 square feet of space to help support the health and healing of patients across multiple departments and services. Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital opened in 2014 and is starting its second phase of construction. The building expansion is expected to be open for patient care in 2022, with both growth and renovation plans focused on enhancing access to heavily used services.
Highlights of the project include:
A new three-story wing to the east side of the existing hospital that will include an additional 40 licensed private-room beds, two operating rooms, an endoscopy unit, 20 prep-recovery bays and three new post-anesthesia care unit bays.
Renovation of 10,713 square feet in the existing hospital to add 24 emergency department exam rooms, expanded dietary service, expanded lab/blood bank and the renovation of a central processing unit to support the expanded facility.
Leveraging the hospital’s recently installed photovoltaic panels, the expansion will build on SSHHR’s commitment to energy independence and will be targeting LEED Version 2.2 Verification Treatment. The facility design will feature natural lighting throughout and sweeping views of the surrounding community.
The design team is also implementing value stream mapping into the design process, assessing the facility’s workflow and identifying solutions to make the building as efficient as possible for future and current employees.
