Inspira Health’s new 465,000 square foot hospital is a 5-story inpatient facility. The main tower consists of patient rooms, operating rooms, an emergency department, imaging suites and maternity center as well as administrative, dining and support services. It also features a new central utility plant, which provides electrical power, heating/hot water and chilled water. The new Inspira Health Network Medical Center was built under the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach, which brings together the client, designer and the builder to align stakeholders and streamline the execution of the project.
