Magee Womens Hospital of UPMC ICU and Medical Surgical Expansion
Client Name: Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC
Location: Pittsburgh, PA
SF: 42,000 sf
Cost: $22 million
Certification: LEED Silver
PJ Dick provided CM at Risk services for the 42,000 sf expansion of one wing of Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC and the addition of two floors of patient rooms. The project included 28 Med/Surg beds and 14 Intensive Care Unit beds. The private patient rooms are single occupancy with a full bath and shower, family zone with sleeper sofa and work space, individual thermostats for patient climate control and hand-washing sinks for medical professionals. The complex nature of this project meant coordinating and executiving construction activities above an active neonatal intensive care unit. PJ Dick was able to work hand-in-hand with hospital staff to minimize any disruptions.
Case Study: Stakeholder Engagement
Our team routinely met with facilities, operations, hospital construction staff, lead nurses and doctors to present project activities and proactively address potential challenges. Bulletins were distributed to the entire hospital to publicize closures and major construction activities. Posters placed strategically throughout the hospital informed the public of upcoming construction. PJ Dick coordinated mockups of hospital rooms and exterior facades to assure design and functionality. Interior mockups enabled the nurses to make adjustments to where equipment would be placed in order to improve the functionality of the room before it became a permanent decision.
