Memorial Hospital Addition

Abilene, KS

Focusing on the community they serve, Memorial Hospital challenged Lawrence Group’s team to rethink the flow of the hospital and to help them deliver a new model of care for their community. The new entry is warm and inviting to patients with materials natural in color and pattern such as slate, cherry wood and stone. The space is filled with natural light and views to nature. The first phase of the project is a new addition to Memorial Hospital that will replace many of the existing departments and expand the patient treatment services available to the facility.

The components of the addition include: 20 private inpatient sleeping rooms, three LDRP rooms and nursery, inpatient pharmacy, laboratory, 8-bay emergency department including two major treatment rooms, imaging suite including X-Ray, RF, CT Scan, Nuclear Medicine and MRI, two operating rooms and recovery and a new main entry with vaulted ceiling, water feature and gift shop. The delivery methodology was design-build, and the project was in budget and on schedule.
