Lebanon, NH – Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center’s (DHMC) East Tower will serve as an updated and state-of-the-art medical surgery inpatient unit. The newly renovated unit provides 15 spacious and private patient rooms.
Fitzemeyer & Tocci provided complete engineering of the HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, and electrical systems as well as performed construction administration services for the inpatient unit renovation. Fleck & Lewis Architects, PC provided architectural services for the project.
This renovation took place in the midst of a functioning patient wing. In addition, there was an adjacent portion of the second level which had an active psychiatric patient bed unit. The design and construction teams not only had to meet logistical challenges of the construction process, but also work to re-design the MEP systems for the project while minimizing the impact and disruption to the rest of the building.
As a design team that has worked together successfully in the past, Fitzemeyer & Tocci,  the DHMC  staff and Fleck & Lewis Architects, PC, tackled this project from all angles to ensure that the construction would go smoothly and be completed within the projected budget.
DHMC’s East Patient Tower project serves as a pilot for a completely new design of the patient rooms and headwalls.  Features included workstations for new electronic medical records systems and wall mounted bed docking stations with electrical services to interface with patient beds.
