Harrison Memorial Hospital Renovation & Addition
CMW Architects expanded and renovated 45,000 square feet of the Harrison Memorial Hospital. The hospital had outgrown its existing facility and recognized a need to provide additional space for new and expanded programs dealing with heart, cancer, stroke, respiratory disease and diabetes. The project consisted of the following: New OR suites that provide for greater efficiency and room for more medical technology. Expanded Emergency Department, allowing for a greater number of urgent and emergent patient cases. Expanded radiology services, which included removing mobile MRI technology. The new equipment allows for a near instant imaging that can be read from the hospital's computer system to virtually anywhere in the world. New chemotherapy / infusion therapy suites are an added benefit to the hospital’s partnership with University of Kentucky's Markey Cancer Center. Patients no longer have to travel great distances to receive treatments multiple times per week. More space was added for technology that will provide better care for cardiac patients. Having better diagnostic technology closer to home means a better outcome for heart patients. The new Elizabeth Bailey Women's Health Center provides the ability to deliver cutting-edge women's health services, with amenities found in larger hospitals. Expanded rehabilitation services allows the hospital to expand the number patients they treat with physical, occupational and speech therapy. These expanded services also allow the hospital to provide new programs which center around the treatment of pulmonary disease, stroke and diabetes. Upgraded and/or replaced all of the facility’s nearly 40 year old mechanical and electrical systems.
