Showcasing a Hospital’s New Front Door

UnityPoint Health Methodist : Peoria, Illinois

PROJECT SIZE & COST

17,700 square feet | $5.7 million

THE CHALLENGE

Demolition of a parking deck on UnityPoint Methodist’s downtown campus created the opportunity for a new outpatient surgery entryway with easier access for the helipad landing. The owner’s concept included a grand entrance design, and improving patient safety was a key focus.

 

KED SOLUTION

To reduce costs, we incorporated the parking deck’s existing stair and elevator tower into the new entrance. The renovation also
included a new smoke evacuation system to protect the three-story atrium, a new helipad including lighting and coordination with flight paths, and a snow-melt system to decrease snow removal efforts and improve patient safety. Installation of IP cameras connected to a central recording system increased patient and employee security, and the addition of dual electric car charging stations encouraged the use of energy-efficient cars.
