The Aroostook Medical Center is one of several hospitals within the Eastern Maine Health System, a multi-hospital system stretching from Central Maine to the Northernmost part of Maine.
DAI was selected to provide full Master Facilities Plan services to this 60 bed hospital for the Aroostook Medical Center. The resultant $40 million total budget cost solution is planned to be updated over a 10 year period with first phase implementation to be multiple outpatient projects with long-term care integrated solutions. The second phase project is to include Surgery, Obstetrics, ICU and family centered Inpatient Unit reconfigurations.
Patient centered care, operational and fiscal goals were key considerations. Decisions included updates to some existing inpatient services accomplished by a mix of renovations and new construction to leverage best use of existing assets and existing adjacencies of departments. Reorganization of several outpatient services was also considered thus creating space for new or future patient service opportunities on the hospital campus. Existing off campus outpatient service nodes were reviewed. Proposed expansions were considered to complement and leverage multiple services and build on the medical home concept.
