New Equipment Transforms the Medical Device Reprocessing Department (MDRD) 

As part of Phase 1 of the renovation of MDRD, three new washer disinfectors have been installed and are up and running! MDRD staff are thrilled to work with the new washers that have greater capacity for cleaning and processing clinical equipment. The machines also have fast and efficient cleaning cycles, larger touch screens, and built-in “cool touch” handles on the racks. Congratulations to the MDRD, Redevelopment and Operational Readiness teams who came together to make this installation a success! Phase 2 of the renovation continues on August 12.

Patient Tower Construction Update

  • The last window on Level 7 of our new patient tower was installed at the end of June! Soon, two elevators will be up and running on the inside of the building and the man and material hoist will be removed.
  • The pedestrian bridge structure connects Level 2 of the parking facility to Level 1 of the new tower. Now the construction team is building the metal deck on the floor and on the roof of the bridge and pouring the concrete floor. By the end of July, glass windows will be installed on the bridge and roofing and finishes will follow. 
  • Testing has begun for all major equipment in the building. Power will be turned on in late September.
  • Inside, installation of drywall continues to progress from the Main Level to Level 7 and soon, ceilings will go up. Painting has started and the main lobby staircase will be installed by late summer.
