Replacement Critical Access Hospital
Work has begun on the new Parkview Wabash Hospital, replacing the current aging facility, and designed focused around the patient experience. The new two-story critical access hospital is designed for 18 private patient beds and includes two operating rooms, six private ambulatory surgery rooms, three PACU bays, eight emergency department rooms, emergency department trauma room, radiology department, lab, outpatient services department, expanded cafeteria and dining, receiving dock, central sterile, and materials management space. The replacement facility is designed to meet the 2014 FGI Guidelines for Design and Construction of Health Care Facilities.
An on-site emergency power system will provide back-up power to the entire facility with additional provisions for mobile generator connection for improved electrical system reliability. The mechanical design includes two premium efficient air-cooled screw chillers, providing full redundancy on the chilled water system.
A two-story, 31,000-sf, medical office building will be attached to the hospital and offer support space for the hospital. The medical office building is being designed to be home the Parkview Physicians Group, giving the community access to a trusted care team of specialty physicians offering outpatient clinics, Women’s health services, Sleep Center, LifeBridge Senior Program, Home Healthcare and Hospice, and hospital administration services.
