This area is 14,000 square feet, M and A wings were divided into 2 phases, consisting of the renovation of Patient rooms and associated support rooms.
In order to better serve the mental health patients of the Columbia Memorial Hospital, a renovation of the 5th floor was in order. The hospital wanted to add space for treating psychiatric patients to include several common and activity areas as well as rooms designed to accommodate group therapy. Rooms for patients requiring overnight care were also remodeled during this phase to include unique hardware for doors and cabinetry selected to ensure patient safety. The 6th floor renovation also freed up beds within the existing Emergency Department and medical and surgical patients receive faster service.
