Construction continues on UPMC Pinnacle Memorial replacement project

UPMC Pinnacle Memorial is working on a new hospital replacement project in York in Pittsburgh.

Quandel Construction Group, Inc. has been selected to serve as the project’s construction manager. Design of the building is handled by Stantec alongside Barton Associates, Inc. The hospital is also employing Dawood Engineering, Inc.

The hospital will include 102 beds, an emergency department, diagnostic imaging, cardiology services, surgical suite and Women’s and Babies. The five-story hospital and central utility plant will be connected by an underground utility tunnel.   The structure is steel with precast architectural panels. This project is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2019.

Quandel says it has been working for UPMC Pinnacle since 2004, most recently completing UPMC Pinnacle West Shore located in Mechanicsburg, PA.

According to the hospital, the new facility will meet the growing health care needs of the York community and for future generations.

The new hospital will feature: modern design with beds on five-levels; private rooms for patients; acute and emergency medical care, cardiology and vascular services, chronic disease management, surgical services, and treatment for patients; three heart catheterization labs, including electrophysiology and interventional radiology technology; four operating rooms, including one cardiac operating room; emergency department with 28 treatment rooms; critical care unit with 14 beds; maternity suites with labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum care all in one room; Level II specialty care nursery; multiple nursing stations in each unit throughout the facility; and a medical office building next to the hospital with ambulatory surgery, a women’s imaging suite, sleep lab, infusion center, and cardiac rehab program.

UPMC Pinnacle said that the hospital is also designed with an expandable footprint to easily allow for construction to meet the future health care needs of our community.

“UPMC Pinnacle has been providing nationally acclaimed cardiovascular and thoracic care throughout central Pennsylvania, and we are excited to offer some of these services at the new hospital,” Philip Guarneschelli, the CEO of UPMC Pinnacle, said in a statement. “Adding new services improves access to care and is a benefit to our entire community. We look forward to being able to grow on our new campus and continue to bring innovation and advanced care to York.”

The new hospital is expected to be completed in August 2019.
