St. Vincent Rehabilitation Hospital

St.Vincent_thumb1Two-story, 12,000+ addition to the existing 60-bed hospital. The new addition added 20 new beds to the second floor while the ground floor remained an open therapy courtyard space.

Advocate Condell Surgery Center

Advocate_thumb1The project was a multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center build-out, approximately 11,000 SF, in a medical office building completed in January, 2017. It opened with two operating rooms and one future operating room. The following areas were developed in the available space: waiting room, reception, business office, bulk storage, soiled and clean work, mechanical room, medical gas room, sterile storage, staff lounge / lockers, semi-restricted staff lounge and control station, anesthesia work, prep and recovery stations with medical gases, private recovery room, consultation room, and exam / private prep room.

This 70,000 SF project included renovating a 36,000 SF existing manufacturing building and adding 34,000 SF to replace the existing Choctaw County General Hospital. The new hospital with medical office building was designed for 25 private patient rooms with toilets, showers, and a kitchen with a public dining room to seat 60+ people. The hospital was designed with an emergency room, diagnostic facilities, inpatient / outpatient physician’s therapy, pharmacy, lab, outpatient clinical services, and support space for equipment, storage, laundry, and more.

Project Profile: Henry Ford Hospital Varian EDGETM Radiosurgery System

Henry Ford Health System chose SSOE Group to provide architectural and engineering services, which included the removal of a linear accelerator (LINAC) and installation of a new Varian EDGE radiosurgery system in an existing vault in the basement of Henry Ford Hospital. Initially, the vault was not adequately shielded for the radiation output of the new equipment, as determined by the client’s on-staff physicist. SSOE worked closely with the physicist, shielding contractor, and construction manager to creatively solve this problem and ultimately provided a fully-shielded treatment room to house the first EDGE radiosurgery LINAC of its kind in North America—second in the world.
