Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center – Post/Ante Partum Private Patient Rooms

West Islip, NY

Show Project Details

Good Samaritan Hospital is converting ten (10) existing semi-private rooms into seven (7) private rooms (post/ante) partum and two (2) semi-private rooms. The project was approximately 3,800 sq. ft. on the fourth floor of Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip, NY. The room conversion required revised fire alarm and fire sprinkler plans to accommodate the proposed floor plan. Cameron Engineering provided supplemental HVAC Systems to accommodate the code-required fresh air and ventilation requirements. Significant modifications to the existing plumbing and riser layout were provided, as well as new piping plans for headwall medical gases and vacuum. New revised electrical distribution plan electrical distribution are consistent with the requirements of a Type I ESS system. A location for a new life safety panel was coordinated with the hospital. A variance has been submitted to alleviate the requirement of separate rooms and complete separation of the required distribution branches based on existing hospital conditions. Cameron Engineering also provided power to revised lighting plans and provided an updated nurse’s call system to accommodate revised layout, and interface for additional hospital systems was coordinated with hospital staff.
