A New Wing Takes Shape at NorthBay Medical Center
Construction is well underway on a $183 million, 77,000-square-foot, three-story addition to NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield. The new wing replaces older sections of the 57-year-old hospital and will include six state-of-the-art operating rooms, two cardiac catheterization labs, a modern cafeteria with indoor and outdoor seating, nutrition services, diagnostic imaging and supply rooms. Also included are 22 “patient rooms of the future” featuring the latest technology in health care and 16 more post-acute care beds.
This summer concrete is being poured for the second and third floors and the roof. The next major milestone will be completing the roof by mid-October, according to project development manager Eric Van Pelt.
Architect for the project is Ratcliff Architects of Emeryville; contractor is DPR Construction of Sacramento. Approximately 50 to 60 workers are onsite each day, with the new addition projected to be complete the first quarter of 2019.
Emergency Department Will Open Expanded Space in Fall
With the busiest trauma center in the county, NorthBay Medical Center is expanding its Emergency Department to accommodate a growing number of patients. The Fairfield hospital is projected to treat 47,000 emergency and trauma patients this year.
Phase 1 of the project, which involves transforming the old 7,000-square-foot hospital lobby into additional Emergency Department space, is expected to open this fall. It will include a new registration area, a new triage room, a manager’s office, six new treatment bays, a new public restroom and a family consulting area. Phase 2 of the expansion remodels the existing registration, nurse’s station, waiting room and three treatment rooms and adds four new rooms. It will be complete in early 2019.
