The Northside Hospital project, which was completed in 18 phases, called for a 16,000-square-foot renovation of the hospital’s ground floor surgery space and a 585-square-foot addition to the ground floor waiting room.  The surgery area renovation included the addition of one hybrid and one standard OR; the expansion of an existing OR; renovation of the existing PACU, including four new PACU bays; renovation of the pre-op area, including seven new pre-op bays; and expansion and renovation of the OR satellite pharmacy.
