The new private patient rooms will be 'family friendly' and the largest in the market place.
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) August 19, 2014
Turner Construction Company celebrated its topping out with a short ceremony detailing the vision and trajectory for The New Sibley last Friday. Sibley Memorial Hospital, a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, is continuing the implementation of its long range master plan with The New Sibley. The New Sibley will include a 40,000 SF state-of-the-art radiation oncology cancer center and a 200 bed replacement patient pavilion and emergency department, both of which will be LEED Certified Silver.
The New Sibley also includes designs to accommodate projected increased demand for emergency services, imaging and diagnostic services, integrated outpatient services, and physicians’ office space while responding to consumer demands for private patient rooms and modernized facilities. A rerouting of traffic to a new “front door” creates a more formal entry sequence for the medical center, decreasing the traffic burden on the residential side of the campus.
Jerry Price, Senior Vice President of Real Estate & Construction at Sibley Memorial Hospital explained, “The New Sibley is the third phase of our master plan development. The first was the medical building and parking garage. The second was the radiation oncology facility and the third is the new Sibley bed tower. He elaborated that, "the new private patient rooms will be 'family friendly' and the largest in the market place.”
The patient pavilion will feature all private medical and surgical patient rooms, supported by a decentralized nursing layout. A new obstetrics department will allow capacity for more than 4,500 annual births, supported by a new special care nursery, LDRs, and C-section rooms. A new emergency department will be up-sized to handle 45,000 annual visits, with expansion capability for 50,000 visits.
"We are thrilled to play an integral part in helping Sibley Memorial Hospital meet the evolving needs of its patients with the construction of The New Sibley," stated Ken Jones, Turner’s Vice President and General Manager. The New Sibley is projected to be open to the public in Winter 2016.
