Carteret Health Care Surgical Addition and Renovation

Client: Carteret Health Care
Architect/Engineer: The East Group
Delivery Method: CM at-Risk

This project is a testament to the collaboration among the key team members: Carteret Health Care, The East Group, DHSR, and T. A. Loving Company. The team goal has been to keep the Operating Rooms (ORs) running during the construction of a new two-story, 12,240 sf addition which ties-in to the existing Surgical Department, and the 24,673 sf renovation of the entire surgical department located on the second floor.

Several design elements of note include a 1,000 sf OR, specialized HVAC with enhanced ability to maintain the equipment, a state-of-the-art infectious patient OR, MEP redundancy, and a focus on the coastal environment.  The construction of the project has been phased and scheduled around the needs of Carteret Health Care staff members.
