Critical & Cardiac Services Renovation

St. Joseph Hospital (KentuckyOne Health)

Project Description: The project involved the systematic gutting and fitting-up of 92,000 sq. ft. of the most expensive space in the hospital, including emergency imaging, cardiac services, endoscopy, nuclear medicine and dialysis departments. Congleton-Hacker provided coordination for the installation of nine new cardiac cath, CT scan, MRI and PET procedure spaces as well as other diagnostic and imaging equipment. The entire project was broken down into 34 logical function spaces based on a construction sequence so the number of existing procedure and diagnostic spaces would never be reduced. Coordinating the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems was crucial to the effort. Congleton-Hacker’s team worked on a daily basis with the hospital’s facilities team to improve the schedule so the best interest of the patient and hospital were preserved.
Firm Role: As construction manager at risk, Congleton-Hacker provided conceptual cost-estimating and value engineering services in the preconstruction phase. We also were responsible for phased schedule development and coordination so no hospital service was compromised in any department at any time.
