St. John Medical Center
Howard S. Wright worked on the large, phased remodel of the patient tower at St. John Medical Center. The remodel included seismic and infrastructure upgrades; electrical, mechanical, HVAC and life safety system upgrades; ADA upgrades; and renovation of all patient rooms and public areas. On the first floor we remodeled the emergency department. This involved relocating the medical library, adding an observation area, doctor’s lounge and four nursing support offices. In this first phase we added a new emergency entry and rework the parking lot and exterior signage. In the following phases we remodeled each floor of patient rooms including the birthing center, telemetry unit, ICU/CCU unit, medical/surgical units, psychiatric unit, and MRI and radiology. We also upgraded the elevators, nurse call/equipment tracking systems, long term file storage, and cart washing areas. A new kitchen and additional public space was also added.
