Skanska expanded the Wilmington Hospital campus. The 386,000-SF, 180-bed expansion spans ten stories and a new patient tower, office building and emergency department (ED) and operating room.
Prior to the start of construction on the 10.9-acre site, we relocated and replaced all major utilities. We constructed a new two-story main entrance with an ambulance bay below for eight ambulances, and we added two new floors for the emergency department while the area was in full operation. The ED featured 16 treatment rooms, three new operating rooms and 30 new patient rooms. The ED renovation quadrupled the size of the current department. Services and support facilities included a healing garden, a small eatery in the new patient tower with a kitchen, a satellite pharmacy and relocation of the main pharmacy.
