The 11,885 s.f. surgery suite was divided into seven phases to allow the department to function during construction. Five of the six existing operating rooms were remodeled to include overhead equipment towers with medical gases and surgical lights, terrazzo flooring, widened doorways, new ceilings, and laminar flow ductwork. The sixth operating room was converted to an equipment storage room. The project also included expanding and remodeling the locker rooms and adding a physician's dictation area. The suite was linked to the adjacent Ambulatory Surgery Center Addition to create a second entrance to the sterile suite.
