New, three-story addition to existing medical tower including 24 ICU beds and 24 surgery beds


144,000 square feet

PAE provided mechanical systems design for this 4 story, 144,000 square foot addition to the existing St. Charles Medical Center ICU Tower. A 36 bed ICU space was fully built out on one of the floors, and a Short Stay/Observation unit added to the buildout of the second floor. This required replacement of a 500 space surface parking lot and secondary water main.

  • Medical vacuum, medical air, and oxygen extended from existing hospital that allowed the hospital to remain fully functional during upgrades.
