The Wayne Memorial Hospital Foundation is helping Wayne UNC Health Care by providing new medical technology and equipment for the hospital.
UPDATE: Clark Patterson Lee (CPL) broke ground on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 for Wayne UNC Healthcare’s $28.9 million surgical expansion and modernization project.
The project combines architecture, interior design, and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing services to renovate 58,636 s.f. and design 42,459 s.f. of new construction. Project Manager Adam Chahulski, Associate Architect at CPL'sCharlotte, NC office, decided to use new technology to give Wayne Memorial staff a lifelike walkthrough of CPL’s designs.
“We tried aspects of 3D room data sheets, where we could manipulate room configurations “live” in front of the client,” Chahulski said.
Using virtual reality software, Wayne Memorial staff experienced spatial concepts and design finishes as well as day-to-day tasks all within a virtual space. After ground breaking, CPL is ready to progress. The project will provide state-of-the-art healthcare at Wayne Memorial Hospital, keeping true to its motto, changing times, changing lives, by adding:
- 13 new operating rooms, including 1 hybrid operating room and provisions for another
- 52 phase 1 and 2 patient prep/recovery rooms
- New endoscopy department
- New pre-admission testing department
- New outpatient lab department
- New surgery waiting area for families and visitors
- Renovations to existing central sterile unit
Renovations and construction will provide the spatial needs and clean, efficient organization to improve the patient experience, and allow healthcare workers to provide faster healing to Wayne Memorial patients. The project is set to complete summer 2019.
