The renovation of the older bed tower and main floor of the hospital was part of a larger project at the San Juan Regional Medical Center. Our firm teamed with Kahler Slater Inc. and was responsible for the renovation work in the older part of the hospital. Kahler Slater was responsible for the fit out of the 5th floor shell space in the new tower, overall project management as well as Architect of Record.


The scope of work RMKM was responsible for included: renovating the 1st floor old surgery department into imaging expansion and Cardiac Cath Labs; and the renovation of 16 bed Medical Surgical 3rd floor. The Imaging expansion included a new diagnostic CT room, Special Procedures, family waiting and support space. Two cardiac cath labs as well as shared patient prep and recovery beds are also part of the 1st floor scope of work. The driving concept for the first floor was to combine the Imaging and Cardiac Cath staff support spaces and well as share the patient prep and recovery beds. The Special Procedures and Cath Labs are also designed to operating room standards and in the future may be used for hybrid diagnostic, treatment/surgical procedures. The three diagnostic procedure rooms back on to a common clean support and supply core.


The 3rd floor scope included: converting the existing semi-private patient rooms to singles, renovated patient bathrooms and new nursing cores. The nursing cores provide primary work stations at each end and smaller charting stations adjacent to patient rooms.
