Hamot Medical Center needed additional space on their existing campus to meet the increased needs of the community. Growing patient demand was stressing the system's ability to provide world class medical services.
This project involved the construction of a new 36,000 SF ambulatory surgery center, serving the Erie area with the highest quality of outpatient surgery services. The new surgery center includes operating rooms, recovery rooms, offices, and an isolation room.
The original facility was designed to easily accommodate an expansion, which occurred approximately six years after completing phase 1. The expansion included three additional Operating Rooms, Recovery Beds and a GI Suite (4 Endoscopy Procedure Rooms). Site work included additional parking.
The development of the Ambulatory Surgical Center within close proximity to the existing campus allowed Hamot Medical Center to increase outpatient throughput by separating outpatient services from hospital services. The space freed up in the hospital when outpatient services was moved off campus allowed the Hospital to renovate the spaces previously occupied to expand spaces to address the need for more hospital space.
