Project Overview

Bell is performing Design-Assist/Preconstruction and Construction for Mechanical and Plumbing services on this expansion project in response to increased healthcare capacity demands in the rapidly growing Berkeley County region. Bell served in this same capacity for the original construction of this facility completed in 2019.

This project includes:

  • Hospital Expansion: four-story, 160,000 SF
  • Renovation of the existing hospital area: 52,000 SF
  • Construction of Medical Office Building and links connecting it to existing buildings: 120,000 SF, including 70,000 SF of shell space
  • Central Utility Plant Expansion: 4,500 SF

A four-story expansion will house an updated first-floor emergency department, imaging department, and surgical services. The project will also include expansion and renovation to the sterile processing and prep, PACU, and recovery spaces, as well as expansion to support services, including registration, dining, loading dock, morgue, and related ancillary spaces. The second the third floors of the new facility will house 58 inpatient beds, and shell space on the fourth floor is planned for a future inpatient rehabilitation facility. Renovation to repurposed inpatient units on the third floor of the existing building will provide for a new observation unit.

Work also includes a single-story expansion between the existing hospital and medical office building to house patient support departments, including the relocation and enlargement of the existing laboratory and pharmacy.
