Congratulations to our healthcare business unit in conjunction with the St. George Office on delivering a remodel of the CATH-Lab located in the St. George Regional Hospital. The project, which was completed in three months, required significant coordination and planning.
CATH-Labs (catheterization laboratories) are exam rooms with diagnostic imaging equipment for the heart. The two-decade-old CATH-Lab within the St. George hospital necessitated new equipment due to electrical deficiencies. Our team was tasked with replacing that equipment as well as the mechanical/electrical elements and installing a new med gas alarm panel. Additionally, the project included moving the entrance of the lab to a new location, within the infection control area.
Significantly, the project also called for the addition of nitrous oxide, which had to be routed over 300 feet throughout the hospital. In order to install the nitrous oxide safely and without affecting any patients, the team coordinated with the hospital to complete the work after-hours and weekends. During the actual tie-in process, 12-13 hospital personnel were present to ensure that the transition went smoothly. While the planning for the tie-in took over a month, the actual process only took 45 minutes.
Thanks to the project team for completing this timely and safe project!
