Multicare Auburn Medical Center - Behavioral Health Unit

Multicare Auburn Medical Center - Behavioral Health Unit

Project Overview

Conversion of the existing 11,000 sf Pulmonary Care Unit on the third floor of the Cascade Tower into a new 20-bed adult Behavioral Health Unit. Significant coordination during construction was required with the fully-operational Gero Psychiatric Unit and Intensive Care Unit located on the floors above and below the construction activity in order to minimize disruptions to the patient, staff and services of the two areas. Specifically, Abbott had to build a new HVAC mechanical shaft from the fourth floor to the roof and place over 20 new plumbing penetrations in the third floor slab which required access to the operating ICU.
