UEC Completes Phase 2B Surgical Suite at Travis Air Force Base
The Travis team recently completed Phase 2B, which renovated the south half of the Surgical Suite. This complex phase provided a ten-bed PACU bay and four ORs, including three specialty ORs (CVOR, Hybrid OR, Oral Surgery OR). Prior to that, the team completed Phase 2A, the north half of the Surgical Suite. This phase renovated five ORs, including two specialty ORs (Ortho OR & Neurological OR); a nine-bed PACU bay; staff locker rooms; OR equipment storage; and sterile storage.
Throughout both phases of the Surgical Suite renovation, the team kept a minimum of five ORs operational. As both areas were phased in place, it was especially important to avoid disruption to ongoing operations. The project required a high level of infection control, as well as overhead coordination of MEP and structural connections for vendor-installed equipment.
The team also recently turned over Phase 3A – Systo/Urology. This critical path phase provided a new Systo room. The Systo/Urology department includes three total phases. The team is currently working on Phase 3B. This 121,038 sf DBIO task order for the largest Air Force treatment facility on the West Coast is part of a three-phase major modernization project comprising the design, construction and outfitting of all four floors of the facility.
Phase III relocated service lines to support functional adjacencies and advance the overall mission of the hospital, renovating several major clinics and surgery suites within the existing footprint of the facility. This included major renovations in the Women’s Health Clinic, Labor and Delivery, surgical clinics, Heart Lung Vascular Center, Surgery Suite and ADAPT. Other renovations were made to the ICU to accommodate state-of-the-art medical gas and electronics booms, and move the SIM center to the first floor. The project will be completed in July 2017.
