Attleboro, MA – Maugel DeStefano Architects announced the completion of Phase I of multiphase renovations underway at Sturdy Memorial Hospital’s main campus in Attleboro. Phase I renovations modernized the hospital’s Same Day Surgery suite and expanded pre- and post-operative areas. The new design increased the suite’s capacity and improved efficiency, while providing better privacy for patients and staff.
“Since 2017, Maugel Destefano has worked with Sturdy Memorial in master planning efforts to improve the hospital’s facilities and to bring exceptional care to patients. The completion of Phase I marks a major milestone in the five-phased redesign of the first floor of the hospital,” said Jonathan Cocker, principal and healthcare lead at Maugel DeStefano Architects. “It has been a pleasure to continue our relationship with Sturdy Memorial, Equity Alliance, and Columbia Construction.”
The next phase of renovations is currently underway and includes an equipment storage area and staff support spaces that feature nursing stations, lounge areas, break rooms, and locker rooms. The improvements are designed to create a modern workspace to meet the needs of today’s fast-paced healthcare environment. Completion is scheduled for early 2023.
Future phases will construct a new Central Sterile Processing Suite and operating room. The new location and functionality of central sterilization will provide a better workflow for staff and a more efficient sterilization process to handle the increased volume expected from the new operating room.
Past Maugel DeStefano projects for Sturdy Memorial Hospital have included advisory services, a satellite medical office building in Plainville, a new CT within the Imaging Suite, and renovations to the hospital’s inpatient pharmacy and LDRP.
