The Clinical Laboratory at Ellis Hospital operates 24 hours / 7 days a week, and is an integral part of the function of multiple departments on the campus. The design facilitates rapid test production with varying staffing levels and incorporates state-of-the-art automated testing as well as a significant refrigeration component. The layout and construction was designed to allow ease of reconfiguration as technology and testing needs evolve.
The relocated Morgue suite includes enhanced operational facilities and equipment and state-of-the-art HVAC design. Space has been included for collaboration with authorized personnel attending an autopsy.
These facilities total approximately 16,000sf and were constructed in the ground floor shell space below the Critical Care Wing of the Hospital. Careful attention was paid to maintaining operations above, while introducing the new mechanical and electrical systems of this project.
