The last steel beam was lowered into place on Doylestown Health’s new Center for Heart and Vascular Care and we couldn’t be more proud of our CBRE | Heery Philadelphia healthcare design group who's design of the new facility is swiftly coming to life.
In an event aptly themed “Beaming with pride”, Doylestown Health officials welcomed members of its community and project team to celebrate this significant milestone which commemorates the completion of the project’s exterior steel structure. The hospital marked this time-honored tradition on Thursday, September 20, 2018 with a ceremonious beam-signing and the placing of a traditional evergreen tree.
Doylestown Health’s brand-new, 100,000 square foot Center for Heart and Vascular Care will renew Doylestown Health’s commitment to its pioneering model of heart care. CBRE | Heery’s Philadelphia healthcare group is the designer of the project which consists of 65,000 square feet of new addition and phased renovations of 35,000 square feet in the existing cardiac unit. The addition includes a new ground floor entrance and central atrium along with a three-story bed wing consisting of 63-private rooms and a planned outpatient cardiac clinic. The project team is renovating the facility’s cardiac catherization labs and will add a new endovascular hybrid operating room for vascular services. Upgrades are also being made to the hospital’s surgical suite including its pre- and post-operative areas.
The project is part of the Facility Master Plan developed by CBRE | Heery with the Hospital in which the design team recognized the hospital’s need for a significant addition and renovation to accommodate the excellent cardiac program. The preliminary design attracted a major donation to encourage the use of Evidenced Based Design methodologies in the development of the design. The project is expected to be completed in 2019.
Members of CBRE | Heery’s healthcare design team attended the topping off ceremony on Thursday and include J.C. Castner, Managing Director, Dawn Thornton, Project Architect, Missy Wicker, Architectural Designer and Andy Wagner, Project Manager.
