Heart Vascular Institute

Carle Hospital, Urbana, Illinois

 

This $240 million investment is the largest campus modernization project Carle has ever embarked upon.

 

Within the 348,400 square feet of new physical space and approximately 50,000 square feet of renovated space, the state-of-the-art facility features 100 percent private patient rooms, the latest in equipment and technology, and greater convenience and access. The new structure designed with private patient rooms for increased patient privacy and family participation in the treatment and healing process, to protect patients from infections that can be transmitted by other patients, and to better accommodate the increasing size of hospital beds and medical equipment used at the bedside.

 

The new bed tower includes 135 replacement beds; one additional catheterization lab – bringing the total to eight catheterization labs strategically designed adjacent to the operating rooms; a 20-bed Surgical ICU and a 12-bed Cardiovascular ICU.

 

TAVR OR Remodel

Carle Hospital, Urbana, Illinois

 

The Carle TAVR OR primary procedure is trans-catheter aortic valve implantation-heart valve replacement through catheters with imaging.  This procedure is performed in the OR in the event that complications arise.  When the room is not in use for the trans-catheter aortic valve implantation procedure, it is utilized for Open Heart Surgery, Vascular Surgery (omitting Carotid Endarterectomy), Interventional Cardiology and Interventional Vascular procedures.

 

The renovation consisted of conversion of an area of prep spaces into a new operating / imaging room.  The TAVR OR renovation took place in order to integrate surgery and radiology departmental work.  Approximate total renovation square footage is 2,200 sf.

 

GHR portion of the project was to design new air handler, electrical, med gas, HVAC, plumbing and fire protection for the space.
