Skanska USA is leading a $108-million, 179,000-sq-ft renovation and expansion project at Bon Secours–St. Francis Medical Center in Midlothian, Va. The expansion includes a vertical two-floor addition above the surgical department on the second floor. The new third floor will house a med-surg nursing unit and the new fourth floor will be used for critical care ICU beds and NICU rooms. Renovation of the existing building will include converting an ICU unit on the third floor into a 10-bed observation unit that repurposes existing patient rooms and support space. Additionally, the project team will reconfigure the fourth floor of the adjacent medical office building, converting it into 24-bed mother-infant unit with a well-baby holding nursery. Other renovations will include expansion of the hospital's gift shop; an additional retail pharmacy; a new MRI suite; a women’s imaging and a preadmission testing suite; and central plant upgrades. Construction began in December, and the project is scheduled to complete by April 2024. The architect is Gresham Smith & Partners.
