Project DescriptionBaptist Health Richmond recently celebrated the completion of a $20 million, phased renovation to modernize the facility. The project involved an extensive renovation to the exteriors of all the buildings on campus as well as interior renovations throughout the hospital and medical office buildings.
In order to create a more cohesive campus aesthetic, the exteriors of the main hospital and medical office buildings were stained. Newly designed entrances and drive-under canopies were installed. A few site work modifications to the campus — including a traffic circle, updated traffic configurations and a new parking lot — assisted in better organizing vehicular traffic.
The facility’s emergency department underwent a phased process to increase the number of bays from 15 to 20 while minimizing disruption to ongoing services. The improvements also allowed for increased privacy for patients and families.
The interior renovations also included the relocation and expansion of the clinical lab, as well as improvements to the dining area, gift shop and lobby. In the Women’s Services, two OB operating suites were developed to increase efficiency by allowing patients needing caesarean-section deliveries to remain on the same floor with all other obstetric services.
In order to increase efficiency of outpatient services, departments including radiology, cardiopulmonary and the laboratory were streamlined in Medical Office Building 3. The waiting and registration areas were also updated to improve comfort and privacy.
