In an effort to remedy existing space constraints and allow the hospital to meet the growing demands for outpatient services in the Cape Cod area, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital embarked on a 6,000 sf addition. Columbia Construction is currently providing preconstruction and construction services for the expansion to the rear of the existing facility.
The expanded, two-story campus will include new physician exam/treatment rooms, eight new outpatient therapy rooms, and a new multi-purpose outpatient gym room that will be used for yoga and tai chi.
The number of beds in the facility will remain the same, but the inpatient area will be spruced up with new flooring and the practice apartment used to prepare patients for returning home will be refurbished. The lobby area will also get a refreshed look and the overall work flow in the area will be improved.
Additionally, a 60 car parking lot facility will be constructed to accommodate the extra 3,500 visits a year the hospital is anticipating with the expansion. Handicap parking spaces will also be added to the existing front portion of the building. This project is utilizing the latest in BIM technology.
