Cleary Zimmermann provided renovations for an existing 7,500 square foot freestanding ER. The renovation included additional cooling for a new lab, replacements for a CT and X-ray machine, a new isolation room, and upgrades to the existing emergency power system. We are evaluating the existing MEP infrastructure to ensure the capacities meet the new program space.
Our team converted exam rooms in the existing facility to isolation rooms. Special consideration had to be provided for pressure relationships between the isolation room and adjacent spaces. This facility will be licensed under the Methodist Main Campus Hospital. This licensing requires our firm to adhere to Title 25 Texas Administrative Code Chapter 133 Hospital Licensing Rules in lieu of this facility being licensed as a free-standing ER.
