Maynard, MA – Maynard-based construction manager, design-builder, and general contractor JM Coull has completed renovations at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital. The scope of work called for the renovation of the Patient Post‐Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) consisting of nine open PACU bays, one isolation PACU, support areas, and construction of a new storage room. The renovation comprises new flooring, wall and ceiling finishes, a nurses’ station, casework, and new headwall/bumper units.

Construction on this fast-tracked project began in July. Work was performed adjacent to the operating room, with the newborn special care nursery above and cardiac catheterization lab below.

This marks the second project for the firm at the hospital and fifth overall project for Hallmark Health System. JMC’s previous work at Melrose-Wakefield included renovations to the hospital’s cafeteria, which transformed the existing 1,900sf of space into a new serving and seating area.


“JMC is delighted to have completed our second project at Melrose-Wakefield,” says Project Executive Dan Cobb. “The PACU was a unique and challenging project due to the location of the space – we were surrounded by critical functions on nearly all sides from the operating room next to us, to the nursery and cath lab above and below. It was essential for us to complete this work without interfering with the activities in these areas, while ensuring the PACU met the needs of the hospital.”
