Frederick Health Hospital selected Quandel to manage the construction of a multi-phase improvement program at their hospital in Frederick, MD.
Phase One was the conversion of administration offices into a new medical-surgical patient care area on the second floor consisting of 12 private patient rooms for cancer patients who have had thoracic surgery and a palliative care area. Construction also included new administrative office space and two new elevator shafts to connect the relocated helipad to the Emergency Department. On the fourth floor’s North medical-surgical unit, 18 private patient rooms were added.
In addition, the existing ground helipad was relocated to the roof of A-Wing. A new air handler was installed, and the rooftop ramp was enclosed. A new elevator shaft now connects the Emergency Department directly to the 10,500-square-foot helipad. This move made room for the second phase of the project, the parking garage expansion.
