A Health Care Upgrade on the Oregon Coast

Bay Area Hospital Expansion

For the expansion of this Oregon Coast hospital, Hoffman developed an innovative prefabrication strategy to minimize the amount of time the impacts and downtime of critical OR services.

This 109,000 SF, four-story addition to the existing Bay Area Hospital includes a new 12-bed Intensive Care Unit, 30-bed Acute Care Unit, and a shelled floor for future build out of another 30-bed Acute Care Unit. The project includes the addition of an outpatient Cardiopulmonary Rehab Clinic, a new Oncology Infusion Clinic, and a lobby and admitting space for the hospital. Upon completion of the new addition, a renovation phase followed in which the existing Intensive Care Area was renovated into a new Cardiac Cath Lab with supporting Pre-Op/Post-Op areas.

Full-Scale Mockups Help Staff Visualize and Test Out Patient Rooms

Full-scale mock-ups, constructed off-site, allowed users to get a sense of how the design would function. Users were able to fine-tune their areas and conduct dry runs of daily operations with nursing staff. This extra step has prevented costly rework and kept the project on schedule.

Prefabrication to Reduce Impact

The expansion of this Oregon Coast hospital included the remodel of the OR decontamination room. Having the room out of service required a cumbersome temporary work-around for the hospital, and they needed it back online as fast as possible.

Prefabrication was critical to reducing the impacts to the hospital. Hoffman worked directly with the fabricator to create custom stainless-steel wall cladding, benches, and sinks, which helped reduce the schedule to just five weeks, including commissioning.

Community Connections

Working in communities like Coos Bay has taught us a lot about how to foster strong relationships in Oregon communities. Our field team went door-to-door on the nearby streets, talking to homeowners and listening to their concerns. We handed out our cell phone numbers so neighbors could call us anytime. We also hosted a neighborhood cook-out at the project site.
