Riverside Pneumatic Tube Replacement

Project Name

Riverside Methodist Hospital Pneumatic Tube Replacement


Columbus, OH

Project Description

Quandel’s Special Project Services (SPS) replaced OhioHealth’s Riverside Methodist Hospital’s existing pneumatic tube system via the Construction Manager delivery model. In a hospital, pneumatic tubes deliver patient-critical materials rapidly and effectively. The two-phased project impacted multiple areas of the hospital including mechanical rooms, NICU, nursing stations, pharmacies, and labs. Quandel performed the entire scope during standard operating hours utilizing Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) compliance, enhanced safety guidelines and additional measures to reduce noise, dust and site disruption while working in close proximity with patients, staff and visitors.
