Oncology Pavilion at Saint Francis Hospital Completed

Torrington, CT– O&G Industries recently completed a five-month renovation project for Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center that saw significant upgrades to its 20-room oncology pavilion and adjoining flex space.

The new pavilion is part of the Hospital’s “Hope & Healing” campaign and places a premium on technology for treatment, amenities for patients and their families, and home-like aesthetics in patient areas. New headwalls at bedsides give patients control over the temperature and lighting of their rooms. The redesign included new private suites where visiting family can overnight, and a spacious healing lounge for relaxation, visits and programming. Renovations included nursing station areas, a conference room and a staff respite suite.

“A lot happens on this floor and now our patients and those treating them will have all the tools necessary to battle their diagnosis,” said campaign Chair P. Anthony Giorgio, Ph.D., board chairman, Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center.

The $2 million renovation was successfully completed on a revised schedule after hazardous materials were discovered during demolition and remediated.

“The project went very well,” says Vincent Lapira, facilities maintenance manager at the hospital.

Additionally, an area adjoining the oncology pavilion was renovated for use as flexible swing space that will handle patient overflow during peak usage or temporarily house other Hospital functions should the need arise. Together the two spaces represent 16,000sf of new and renovated space for Saint Francis.
