Handled with care
St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton, which is celebrating its 110th anniversary this year, is undergoing an extensive remodeling and updating project that changes not only the hospital's appearance, but also how care is being provided. The first part of the multi-phase project was a new entrance and parking structure, which finished in 2006. Last fall, St. Elizabeth opened its Heart, Lung & Vascular Center, which provides a full spectrum of heart-care services, including cardiology, pulmonology, cardiovascular and vascular surgery, the anticoagulation clinic and the new COURAGE clinic.
Built by The Boldt Company, the 23,500-square-foot addition is designed with patients in mind. Next up for St. Elizabeth is a $65 million, three-year project that will include renovations and remodeling in the hospital's emergency department, outpatient rehab, outpatient procedure space, women and families Birthplace unit; breast center, radiology and cancer center. The hospital's power plant will also be renovated, reducing the hospital's energy usage by 30 percent. The remodel and expansion project will have the fingerprints of more than 700 patients who provided their input during the designing process.
"Before we ever put a shovel in the ground, we do our research to learn what the patient wants. Then we figure out how to design and build facilities to meet their needs and expectations through the most sustainable means possible," says Gary Kusnierz, vice president of performance excellence.
