Benjamin & Marian Schuster

Heart Hospital

Project Overview

Heapy designed the Mechanical, Electrical and Technology systems for the new 5-story, Benjamin and Marian Schuster Heart Hospital. The 120,000 SF facility serves as a premier cardiac care facility as well as a research and education facility and includes cardiac CT, cardiac MRI and cardiac PET scan.

The hospital will feature state of the art diagnostic and interventional equipment, including three new cath labs. Another lab will be constructed in the future, as a hybrid cath lab that could be used for surgery should the need arise during a cath procedure. Two electro-physiology labs were also installed. The facility also includes places for angiograms and angioplasty. The equipment used includes a sophisticated fluoroscopic imaging system.

Heapy provided Structured Cabling (Voice/Data/CATV) Infrastructure Design as well as the Nurse Call Design for the New Heart Hospital. A Telecommunications Grounding/Bonding Design was also provided in accordance with TIA/EIA 607A.

To support the addition, the existing central utility plant was modified to expand the chilled water plant, high temperature hot water system, and emergency generation system. All of the modifications were made while keeping the existing systems active.

The project was completed in 2010 and received an ABC 2010 Excellence in Construction Award of Merit.

Planning for the New Normal
Plumbing Systems Re-Occupancy and Ongoing Operations

Your building may have been shut down these past many months due to WFH/COVID. Minimal use of your building’s water systems creates stagnant water in your plumbing system piping and equipment, which promotes the growth of Legionella and/or other biofilm-associated bacteria. This places your building occupants at risk when re-occupancy occurs. Now is the time to develop and implement a safe and effective Water Management Plan to protect your building occupants, maximizing their health and safety upon re-occupancy.
