Connections for Community Care
Gausman & Moore is helping expand available health care services for the people of Cloquet, Minnesota.Community Memorial Hospital was established as a short term acute care facility to serve the growing population of Cloquet. The success of CMH has prompting area residents and businesses to significantly expand the hospital, improving access to quality health care for the entire community.G&M prescribed the phased construction of mechanical and electrical systems that help make improved care possible, while ensuring the vital CMS adult, pediatric and coronary care services continue uninterrupted.Phase 1 included a 55,000 sf addition of an emergency room, urgent care facility, four operating suites with associated support spaces, post operating recovery rooms, x-ray suites, and a new lab area. This included the relocation of medium voltage transformer vault, a new electrical service entrance, and a 500 kW generator package with four automatic transfer switches. Fire protection was integrated for the complete facility.Phase 2 completed a 95,000 sf addition which included a 35,000 sf intensive care unit (ICU), a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) suite, patient rooms, an obstetrics department, an infusion specialty clinic, a physical therapy suite, classrooms, locker rooms, and a kitchen and cafeteria equipped to provide patient dietary needs.
