Luckett & Farley provided master planning and design services for a 48,664 square foot surgical center addition to the Taylor Regional Hospital in Campbellsville Kentucky. The Center’s façade is a combination of masonry to match the existing hospital and insulated metal wall panels, which bring a modern high tech look to the new surgical center. In addition, the building is designed to appear as a separate facility from the hospital to help with the easing of patient anxiety. This hospitality focus on the patient allows for individual pre- and post-op rooms that become the patient’s “home base.” Their family wait in the individual rooms for their loved one to return from the procedure.
The third floor operating rooms are supported on a steel frame designed to reduce building vibrations allowing for the use of microscopes up to 100x magnification. A series of Vulcan valves allow for the building’s rooms to be set back when not in use providing considerable energy savings for the users.
The Surgical center is equipped with five operating rooms, a cysto room, two gastro/endo suites and twenty-one Pre-Op / Post-Op patient rooms in addition to a separate PACU, a sterile processing area, diagnostic imaging suites and all of the support areas typically required by such a facility.
The Surgical Center is scheduled to open in August 2012.
