The project consists of a four-story vertical expansion over an existing two-story surgical suite. The addition will have 26 critical care patient rooms per level with support areas for staff and dedicated family space. A new bridge will connect the new tower to the existing 1973 tower for staff, logistics, and patient discharge.

Mechanical systems include addition of two large chilled water central air handling units serving variable air volume distribution system with direct digital controls. Campus distribution of chilled water and steam will be provided to the expansion. The expansion will require converting the existing two-story fire dampers to fire/smoke dampers due to the reclassification as a high-rise structure.
