The new 31,790 SF expansion and renovation of St. Joseph’s Emergency Department includes 17,770 SF of expansion and 14,020 SF of renovation. The first phase expanded space in the Outpatient Lobby which opened January 2017. The second phase which includes the Emergency Department renovation opened June 2017. This project features grand lobbies, a reflection pool, and doubles the Emergency Department capacity. This is the 4th consecutive project on the St. Joseph’s campus in the last 5 years.
For the Emergency Department and Outpatient Expansion, the original phasing plan drafted by St. Joseph’s/Candler (SJ/C) dictated a construction duration of 22 months. Because SJ/C chose a Collaborative Project Delivery (CPD) method for this project, we had the ability to team with key stakeholders at the project’s earliest stages.
