Rogers-O’Brien recently delivered the Rankin County Hospital Replacement Facility utilizing the design-build delivery method, which yielded transparency of all costs, allowed for faster project completion and was under budget. The new Rankin County Hospital and Wellness Center includes a new 38,200 square foot Critical Access Hospital with 15 inpatient beds along with lab, imaging, physical therapy, dietary, and emergency department services. The Clinic and Pharmacy are connected to the hospital. The 9,800 square foot Wellness Center features a large pool, exercise and gym multipurpose space, locker rooms, and physical therapy area. The 8-acre site also includes a FAA compliant lighted heliport and an RV parking area to facilitate out-of-town families of extended stay patients.
Utilizing an integrated team approach, Rogers-O’Brien and O’Connell Robertson worked together from conception through completion, actively engaging the client and hospital staff for comments and input during early work sessions. This approach allowed us to create a “one of a kind client specific custom designed facility” meeting their every need and providing efficient healthcare operational services and configurations for smooth flowing (less movement) work environments designed to fit their distinct style of procedures/routines in their facility.
