Complete Interior Renovation and Addition of Labor and Delivery wing and new MRI Facility between the McKinstry/Lopez Salas Design Build Team. Architectural and interior design for 31,122 square feet of building additions and renovations to the existing Hospital. Renovations included new interior finishes of the OR and corridors (7,865 SF); complete interior renovation of the Intensive care unit (4,978 SF); design of a new addition for a labor/delivery wing (10,288 SF); design of a new Northwest entry (6,159 SF) and design of a new 3,894 SF Dialysis building.

Phase 4 includes:

    • New Dialysis center, allowing patients to receive treatment several times a week close to home
    • Labor and delivery renovation, including suites and a dedicated operating room
    • Complete renovation and upgrade of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
    • New third operating room as part of the surgery center renovation

    • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible hospital entry
    • Renovation of the entire IT system

Upon completion, Phase 4 will save the hospital more than $13,000 per year through heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) improvements; an energy management control system; lighting improvements; and rain water reclamation. Combined improvements across all phases are expected to offer savings of $175,000 annually.

The Administrative staff and Board at R.P.M.H. loved their designs which were creative and fit our needs perfectly. Their team was pleasant to work with and cooperative during all phases of planning, as well as dedicated and thorough.

I was extremely pleased with the service Lopez Salas Architects, Inc. provided to us and I look forward to working with them again. I would recommend the firm without reservation.
