O'Donnell & Naccarato provided structural engineering services for Lehigh Valley Hospital's Muhlenberg Campus Expansion. Our role in the project included: the design of the new 8-story, 265,000 SF patient tower and clinical care units, 100,000 SF of renovations to the existing hospital buildings, plus a master plan analysis of the existing structures for potential horizontal and vertical expansion. The expanded hospital accommodates: 188 private rooms for critical care, cardiac, and medical/surgical patients, an expanded regional heart center, an intensive care unit, a diagnostic care center; a new hospital entrance and lobby, plus a cafeteria, pharmacy, chapel, retail space, and increased visitor and staff parking. A large free-standing limestone arcade identifies the hospital’s main entrance.
