Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, Surgical Optimization of Building 02

Portsmouth, Virginia

Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, Virginia has proudly served the military and their families since 1830, making it the Navy’s oldest continuously operating hospital. Nationally acclaimed, this medical center offers premier research and teaching programs designed to prepare new doctors, nurses and hospital corpsmen and women for the future.

This project modernizes and expands the surgical spaces of Building 02, while relocating ambulatory surgery services. The 110,000 SF renovation increases the number of operating rooms to 19 and includes 34 pre-op/phase II recovery bays, 24 PACU recovery bays which include two negative pressure isolation rooms and five anesthesia procedure bays. The project also includes a new central procedure unit, renovated PICU spaces, and administration and office areas.

Prior to the renovation, LEO A DALY performed healthcare facility planning and medical equipment planning to help plan for future IO+T needs. This project will greatly increase staff efficiency and improve the environment of care while providing world-class healthcare to patients in spaces meeting current codes and criteria.
