Geisinger Health System - Wyoming Valley Critical Care Building

This project added a new 5-story, 179,000 SF critical care building to Geisinger Health System's Wyoming Valley Campus.  It includes a new 35,000 SF emergency department with 26 treatment bays, CT scan and x-ray room along with support space including triage and administration areas.  There is a 37,000 SF surgical suite with 12 new operating rooms, two of which are dedicated to cardiac surgery. In addition to the OR's there are 26 bays for PACU/Prep/Stage recovery units, support spaces and anesthesia rooms.  These departments have a connecting link to the existing hospital. 

The building structure consists of a cast-in-place concrete foundation with a structural steel frame system with poured concrete floor slabs and roof deck with a heliport on the roof. The exterior skin of the building includes brick, aluminum curtainwall, and architectural metal panels. The building also has a heliport on the roof.

The building was constructed using LEED guidelines and is LEED SILVER certified. This project is also the recipient of the 2010 American Society of Healthcare Engineering - VISTA Award.
