St. Elizabeth Cancer Center

St. Elizabeth HeathcareEdgewood, Kentucky

CMTA was the engineer of record for full mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and IT/communication and security systems for a six-floor, 235,000 square foot addition dedicated to cancer care and treatment, with a 70,000 square foot, three-story patient room located on top of the existing four-story patient tower to accommodate 140 patient beds. 

As part of the expansion, CMTA designed the infrastructure upgrade of air handling unit #9, which serves 22,000 square feet of critical healthcare space, including laboratories, radiology, and other patient critical areas. This unit was a dual duct unit that was at the end of its life, creating maintenance issues for the hospital staff.  

Garren Colvin, CEO of St. Elizabeth Medical Center, wanted this building to be a “key component in fulfilling our ongoing vison to lead Northern Kentucky to become one of the healthiest communities in America.” CMTA embraced this vision. Examples of our dedication include additional filtration and airflow treatment for the conditioned air of the building and silver ionization water treatment to improve the water quality for the patients. The building also needed to be very energy efficient so that additional resources can be used for patient treatment rather than operation and maintenance. Thus, the building is designed to be Energy Star Certified.

The detailed analysis and site investigation that was completed by CMTA was critical to the success of this project.... We expected this space renovation to be the most complicated part of the project, but thanks to CMTA’s diligence it became one of the easiest transformations.
