People living in the rural Potomac Highlands region of West Virginia have to travel outside of the area to receive their cancer treatment every day. But that is about to change.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Grant Memorial Hospital broke ground on a multi-phased project offering hope for those in the region who have been recently diagnosed or are currently receiving therapies for cancer. The thoughtfully-designed new oncology infusion center at Grant Memorial will feature its own dedicated entrance and will offer high-quality specialty care for them, right in their own backyard.
Working with Shockey to provide patients with a state-of-the-art, nine-patient infusion center and an on-site pharmacy, Grant Memorial Hospital serves the nearly 84,000 people who live in the five-county Potomac Highlands region. Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. will be providing construction management services for the project.
Phase I will entail converting three existing inpatient bedrooms to two new critical care patient rooms with accessible bathrooms. Shockey will also update two inpatient rooms with additional medical gasses, power, and updated casework and finishes. In Phase II, the team will demolish the existing Special Care Unit and construct a new pharmacy including a clean room suite (ante room, hazardous and non-hazardous buffer rooms) compliant with current USP 795/800. Phase III includes demolition of approximately 5,200 SF of existing administrative offices and construction of the new medical oncology infusion clinic and new building entrance vestibule. Within the pharmacy space, a portion of the exterior wall will also be opened up to create more glass, allowing daylight into the infusion patient rooms.
