Syracuse Area Health, Critical Access Hospital

Syracuse, Nebraska
The Syracuse Area Health Replacement Hospital in Syracuse, Nebraska is approximately 72,000 GSF in a one-story building and second level AHU penthouse. This includes hospital area of approximately 42,000 GSF, clinic and administration area of approximately 21,000 GSF, and central energy plant and ambulance bays using the remaining square footage.

There is a one-and-a-half story lobby and public area joining the hospital and clinic. This space is used for general circulation and admissions waiting, as well as a central wayfinding area for distribution to hospital departments.

This new critical access hospital is designed to foster patient well-being and to support staffing efficiencies. The hospital occupancy areas include a surgical suite with a large operating room and a minor procedure room, emergency and radiology departments and an inpatient wing with 10-private patient rooms. Additional support departments include lab, pharmacy and nutrition services. Outpatient services comprise most of the remaining space, which includes 20-exam rooms and three procedure rooms, supporting a rural health physicians’ clinic and a specialty clinic. Full rehab and occupational therapy spaces are part of the clinic environment.

The hospital “gives the organization the ability to grow well into the future,” said Michael Harvey, President and CEO. “And it helps ensure that healthcare will be available for generations to come”.
