PAST PROJECT

York Hospital Surgery Expansion

York, Maine

York Hospital is constructing a multi-phase coordinated expansion which includes emergency helipad, surgery center expansion, private patient room building expansion, and a parking lot expansion. Altus has been providing technical engineering support to the York Hospital for 10-years. In the fall of 2008, the hospital began construction on the $10 million, 7,000 square foot building addition to the surgery center and a major interior renovation to accommodate a significant expansion of services.

Altus developed the site plans for all of the expansions and obtained the local, state, and federal regulatory approvals. Design challenges included treatment of the stormwater runoff adjacent to the sensitive tidal estuary, providing sustainable design with poor soil conditions and severe slopes, providing a safe drop-off area, and phasing coordination among a wide variety of architectural and engineering disciplines and other stakeholders.

The new surgery center, once completed, will offer two additional operating room suites and five additional pre- and post-op rooms for patients and their family members, bringing the totals to five OR suites and ten pre- and post-op rooms. Also included is a new post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) with six private patient recovery rooms; a new, more patient friendly reception and waiting area; and additional space for equipment storage and staffing needs.
