The new Emergency Department at Misericordia Community Hospital will provide state of the art facilities to an existing hospital in vital need of expansion. The original emergency department opened in 1969 and was operating well over its original design capacity of 20,000 visitors per year. The new 54,000 square foot facility is designed to accommodate 60,000 visitors per year, and nearly triples the available patient care spaces.
As opposed to a traditional tendering method the owner utilized a qualifications-based selection process to choose the consulting and construction management team, where the team was chosen entirely on merit without consideration to fees.
