The existing Hot Springs County Memorial Hospital structure, constructed in 1957-1959, is unsustainable and in need of improvements and upgrades. Hot Springs County Memorial Hospital retained Altus and Plan One/Architects to perform a comprehensive facility design for a renovation and addition. The need for new construction is extensive and will include new Inpatient and Labor & Delivery Units; Surgical Services including operating and procedure rooms, sterile processing, and peri-operative; and an Emergency Department. Other important services will be enhanced in renovated space including, Lab, Pharmacy, Food Services; Cardiopulmonary and Radiology as well as a specialty clinic and infusion services. In partnership with Plan One, Altus delivered the requested phased, economical master facility plan with special consideration to preserve a majority of the existing building while adding the new, additional functional space. Programming and Schematic Design are complete and the project is currently in the Design Development phase with the team working on developing details, specifications and updated cost estimates for both the expansion and renovation pieces. The team of architects, engineers, and specialty consultants commenced the programming and master planning effort by reviewing the 2015 Master Plan. During this stage, the team:
