Veterans Administration Medical Center Hampton Inpatient and Outpatient Diagnostic Imaging and Nuclear Medicine Renovation and Expansion – Hampton, VA

Hampton Veterans Administration Medical Center - Inpatient and Outpatient Diagnostic Imaging and Nuclear Medicine Renovation and Expansion Floor Plan

Hampton Veterans Administration Medical Center – Inpatient and Outpatient Diagnostic Imaging and Nuclear Medicine Renovation and Expansion Floor Plan

Project Scope: 22,000 SF renovation and expansion within the existing VA Medical Center in Hampton, Virginia. The project reorganized the existing diagnostic imaging services department, increasing staff efficiency and improving the patient experience by providing logical adjacencies between programs with similarities in staffing and dual treatment processes. The thoughtful reorganization and expansion of current programs incorporated additional diagnostic imaging growth forecast and right-sized patient treatment spaces that were originally drastically undersized for the equipment and patient maneuvering requirements.

The major program components were two CT scanners with flexibility for a third; two gamma camera nuclear medicine CT scan rooms; three  standard xray rooms; and two fluoroscopy scan rooms. Also incorporated as additive alternate adjacent clinics were an IRL lab (Interventional Radiology Lab and four bed PACU) and a PVL lab (two Pulmonary Vascular procedure rooms).

Currin Design Consulting, LLC provided programming, planning and facility design as well as full-discipline and specialty equipment quality control/cross-discipline coordination.

VA Hampton Diagnostic Nuclear Imaging Expansion

VA Hampton Diagnostic Nuclear Imaging Expansion

Project Scope: This project involves a 2,000 SF addition to the existing hospital which will create a mobile diagnostic imaging clinical support center for both inpatient and outpatient patient caseloads. Flexibility during planning, design and engineering will allow the facility to accommodate multiple diagnostic mobile imaging modalities. By completing an in-depth analysis of multiple imaging modalities, finding commonalities between them in terms of clinical support space requirements, a flexible unit will allow for a much higher efficiency ratio in terms of usage/ patient throughput and maximize site utilization.  Currin Design Consulting, LLC provided planning, programming, building design, quality control, full discipline coordination of construction documents, medical equipment and MRI, PET/CT equipment coordination review, and cost efficiency review/consulting.
