Hogan has completed four medical facility projects for WellStar Health System. The first project, completed in the Spring 2007, consisted of 6,300 SF of demolition and build-out of the first off-site Blood Donor Facility for WellStar. This facility included lobby space, waiting area, reception, procedure room, recovery room, processing lab, donation center, offices, conference room, consultation rooms, and designated soiled and clean storage areas. Coordination of owner furnishings included specialty chairs, blood bank refrigerators, and plasma storage freezers. The unique facility is the first of its kind in the state and only the second in the United States; in it, patients donate directly to the WellStar Health System in a relaxing and inviting environment – expansive window space provides abundant natural light.
The Pediatric and Adolescent Center was the second project for WellStar. Completed Winter 2007, Hogan built-out 2,600 SF of medical office space that housed an urgent care facility and pediatrician offices. Construction work included laboratories, a nurses’ station, an x-ray room, medical file room, and equipment storage. This project also involved the installation of a high tech limited access security system.
The Urgent Care Facility project consisted of the renovation of 3,900 SF of space to provide an Urgent Care Service area and Pediatrician office space. The renovation included laboratories, nurse’s stations, and x-ray room and equipment storage.
Hogan also renovated 2,268 SF in the Cancer Center to create a conference room, a training room, a bathroom, a reception area, an office, a staff lounge, and a work area with cubicals. The project was a result of relocating the Imaging Department. Due to inaccuracies with County records, permitting was delayed; Hogan worked with all parties to resolve the issue and obtained permitting without delaying construction.
As with all hospital projects, Hogan began construction by building an ante room (a negative air pressure cleaning chamber) to protect the air quality thoughout the facility during construction.
