Aultman 2010 Hospital Expansion
Hasenstab Architects worked with Aultman Hospital in providing architectural, engineering and interior design services for a $57 million, 338,000 square foot hospital expansion on its main campus in Canton, Ohio.
The new addition is located north of the existing hospital and connected with a four-story atrium lobby. The new facility houses the Heart Center, Women’s Center – including Labor and Delivery and a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit – and Emergency/Trauma Department, which includes a Level II Trauma Center and Life-Flight services for the region. All of these areas were relocated from their former locations within the hospital.
The unique arrangement of patient rooms and nurse stations facilitates improved communications and traffic flow. Floor layouts were specifically designed to allow patients to be kept in the vicinity of specialty areas and testing utilities, eliminating the need to transport patients long distances for procedures.
The project accommodates the following patient treatment functions:
■ Open Heart Surgical Suite with Support Functions
■ Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) / Stepdown Unit
■ Invasive Cardiac Catheterization Unit
■ Non-Invasive Stress Testing
■ Physician Offices
■ Triage Unit
■ Labor & Deliver Unit
■ Cesarean Section Unit
■ Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
■ Emergent & Immediate Care Units
■ Chest Pain / Observation Unit
■ Radiology (includes CT Scanner Room, Ultrasound, 2 General Radiographic Rooms, 4 Gamma Cameras / Nuclear Medicine)
