Square Footage: 240,000
Actual Cost: $90 Million
Completion Date: 2nd Quarter 2019

This project consists of building a new 5-story tower that will become the new front door to the campus. The new tower will include a new adult emergency department that is also a level 2 trauma center. The new department consists of 77 treatment rooms serving 165,000 patients a year, making it the busiest emergency center in Nevada. The upper floors consist of a 36-bed ICU, a 36-bed med/surg unit, with 2 shelled floors for future bed needs. A new rooftop helipad will be added with direct access to the trauma center. In an effort to increase speed to market, the design incorporates many innovations including pre-fabricated components for exterior wall panels, headwalls, footwalls, and bathroom pods that promote the standardization of design and construction, while improving the efficiency in the project delivery and the healthcare within. The central plant will be upgraded to accommodate the existing campus, the addition, and the future buildout. The campus exterior will be re-cladded to complement the tower and create a new facade revealing a new signature presence for this hospital.
