The 4,000 square foot Advanced Wound Center was a four month renovation. This project consisted of an extensive interior renovation; which transformed patient rooms, dating back to 1964, into a wound care clinic. This facility includes hyperbaric chambers, exam rooms, offices, a lounge, and waiting room. The Advanced Wound Center at Faith Regional Health Services offers physicians a valuable resource for patients with hard to treat wounds. This center works to manage the healing process from start to finish, ensuring patient compliance and enabling a consistent plan of care.
The Pre/Post Operation project at Faith Regional Health Services included a complete interior renovation of the existing wound care facility to create a pre/post operative care unit. This 5,000 square foot unit contains ten recovery rooms and a nurses station. Located in the center of the hospital, directly adjacent to the surgery wing, this project was completed without any interruption, hindrance, or disruption of any of the hospitals daily operations.
Scheduled, sequenced and phased over nine months to accommodate two other construction projects, Dicon expanded and renovated an existing rooftop mechanical penthouse, near the center of the facility. The HVAC systems served multiple critical areas of the hospital including surgery. An additional air handler and the replacement and upgrade of the original air handlers, new hydronic systems and ductwork were among the upgrades. Thorough coordination and planning kept the facility operational during all phases of construction.
Dicon was hired by West Holt Medical Services to remodel all of their patient rooms, nurses station and corridors. Also included was the relocation of the family waiting room and the addition of a procedure room and report/meeting room. All work was done while keeping the hospital operational. Individual patient room pods were isolated following infectious control procedures while work was being completed. The location of nurse call and medical gasses were changed in each patient room.
“We recently completed a large construction project at West Hold Medical Services that included renovation of the hospital nursing station, patient rooms, corridors, family room, medication dispensing room and a provider dictation room. We interviewed several construction management firms before hiring Dicon for our project. They provided a superior level of service and worked hard to stay below budget on the program by engineering and leaning out of unnecessary costs. They were a highly professional team that were engaged through our project and ensured that all our subcontractors met or exceeded expectations. Our site superintendent ensured a safe and productive work environment and ensured that all contractors kept to the timeline of the project. Dicon was a great resource when working with the architect, state inspectors, and other outside agencies. Dicon is a well-managed and well-run construction and construction management company.”

Renovations took place throughout various locations in the hospital. A conversion of the existing retail store and storage room into an exam room and group clinic room included mechanical/electrical renovations, as well as automatic doors and audio/visual equipment. Demolition of the entire second floor took place to create a respiratory lab area including a new waiting area, nurse station, meds room, lab room and bed/observation rooms. Complete demolition of the third floor included new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing. The third floor then was converted into several areas for individual suites for home care nursing, conference rooms, staff offices, therapy rooms, storage rooms, activity and dining rooms. The third floor North and South wings now accommodate 38 patient rooms, central nursing and greeter area as well as observation stations, lounges, laundry areas and med rooms. 262 windows on the third and fourth floors were replaced. Finally, on the fifth floor, patient rooms were converted into administrative staff offices. Construction included all new finishes as well as removal of all nurse call devices and medical gas lines.
This is one of only a few free-standing medical clinics in the city and boasts a total of nine exam rooms. The clinic is also a pioneer in its all-digital/electronic record keeping and will specialize in occupational health.
This project required an almost total demolition of the interior of the existing building. During construction, it was discovered that the sanitary sewer was not flowing properly. Further inspection showed that there was no adequate slope in the drain line. We had to remove floor slabs and replace approximately 70 feet of sewer line. This work was done while continuing construction around the excavation to maintain schedule.
