Aurora BayCare

Green Bay, WI | Healthcare

Overview

ISG has worked with Aurora BayCare to renovate and expand a number of its facilities that serve the Greater Green Bay area.


Opportunity

Aurora BayCare wanted to expand a number of its healthcare facilities to accommodate increasing patient numbers, requiring designs focused around a variety of medical systems and equipment.

Solution

ISG has worked on a number of major projects for Aurora BayCare, including the following facilities:

CT Scan Services
The Aurora BayCare Medical Center Diagnostic Services is continuously upgrading and expanding its equipment and services, including an upgrade providing a next-generation CT scanner to replace a technologically outdated model. The new unit required significantly more head end equipment than the previous model and displaced a staff lounge. To address existing utility conflicts in the space above the ceiling, ISG developed solutions that allowed underground routing for the electronic conduit bank between the CT equipment room and scanner.

Endoscopy Center
The 7,400 sq. ft. renovation at the Aurora BayCare West Side Clinic was necessary to provide space for growing staff and patient numbers in the Endoscopy Center. The first floor renovation included four patient pre- and post-operation rooms, private toilets, endoscopy procedure rooms, a clean storage room, a private office, two consultation rooms, an anesthesia office, a dictation office, a modified registration desk and work room area, and a modified lobby/waiting area. Designs for the lower level floor renovation encompassed a break room, shared office space, and unisex toilet.

Linear Accelerator
The 3,790 sq. ft. addition at Aurora BayCare Medical Center was needed to provide space for another vault that would support a new radiation oncology therapy system. The installation of the True Beam Linear Accelerator required heavy shielding, making ISG’s coordination with a certified medical physicist critical throughout the design process. The new addition includes a treatment vault, operator station room, standard offices, dosimetry room physicist office, mechanical room, and hot lab. Renovations include an electrical room, offices, and soiled holding room. Although it was a one-story addition, the footings and column grid were designed to support four stories for future expansion.

MRI Facility
The current MRI facility at the Aurora BayCare Medical Center needed to expand to accommodate growth in diagnostic services. This renovation provides space to house a new MRI unit. Additional new spaces include an MRI unit room, equipment room, control room, pre-operation holding rooms, and modified inpatient holding room.

Vince Lombardi Cancer Center
The Vince Lombardi Cancer Center (VLCC) at the Aurora BayCare Medical Center has been remodeled to accommodate growing patient numbers. New spaces include patient exam rooms, doctor offices, additional chemotherapy bays, unisex bathroom, new supply room and existing supply room expansion, and a waiting room expansion.
