Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes, Indiana, broke ground on the BEACON Project—a $109 million patient tower addition and renovation. The project consists of a new five-story, 200,000 square foot, 120-bed inpatient tower, and the redesign of the existing healthcare facility.
BSA LifeStructures’ design was focused on improving healthcare outcomes and providing a facility that enhances the regional status of Good Samaritan Hospital. The addition will feature private patient rooms with space to better accommodate visitors and families. The firm will measure patient safety, physician and patient satisfaction, infrastructure excellence, and a number of other metrics to connect the new built environment to measurable outcomes. Good Samaritan Hospital has worked very closely with the project team, which includes Hunt Construction Group, to ensure the project delivers a facility capable of serving a patients, staff, and physicians.
The emergency power infrastructure addition consisted of an ASCO Power Technologies 10 section low voltage emergency generator paralleling control system at its core. The (7) 18 cycle ASCO Power Technologies 7000 Series Closed Transition Bypass Isolation Automatic Transfer Switches were added to the paralleling control along with the existing facility ATS’s. The ASCO PowerQuest 5750 Professional Critical Power Management System was provided to monitor up to 64 devices with complete Joint Commission reporting system trending on a 19 inch touch panel computer.
