Fairfield Medical Center’s Project “BRIGHT” (Build, Revitalize and Innovate for Greater Healthcare Tomorrow) project features 11 OR’s and 36 patient rooms. The addition was built between the main hospital and its surgery pavilion, connecting the two buildings.
Heapy designed the Mechanical-Electrical systems for the $35 million expansion. The new surgery wing allows Fairfield Medical Center to have expanded operating rooms, 100 percent private patient rooms, advanced technology, such as robotic equipment, and improved family waiting areas.
New patient rooms are acuity adaptable and allow for future flexibility for varying patient needs. A new, enhanced entry with improved wayfinding connects the existing hospital to the new addition.
Heapy provided Structured Cabling (Voice/Data/CATV), WLAN, and Electronic Safety and Security (Electronic Access Control, Panic Duress & Closed Circuit Television System) Design for the expansion of the existing hospital with a new wing for new operating rooms and medical offices. A Telecommunications Grounding/Bonding Design was also provided in accordance with TIA/EIA 607A.
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.
