The expansion and renovation of Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Cape Cod in Sandwich, Mass., which will increase the hospital’s outpatient capacity by 21,000 visits per year, is complete.

Architectural and interior design firm Margulies Perruzzi Architects designed a two-story, 6,230-square-foot addition and renovated 12,800 square feet of space in the existing 60-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital. The expansion of the 76,900-square-foot hospital addresses space constraints, enhances accessibility and prepares the hospital to meet projected demand for outpatient services as Cape Cod’s population ages.

The project expanded Spaulding’s physician services clinic by 33 percent and added two physician exam/treatment rooms and eight new outpatient therapy rooms, doubling the private treatment space. In addition to a new, multi-purpose room on the first floor, five treatment rooms were added and a patient/family resource room was created on the inpatient unit. A redesigned reception area and expanded lobby, registration and waiting areas enhances accessibility for patients with mobility impairments, provides private spaces for registration, and improves workflow.

The project team also included the owner’s project manager Colliers International, civil engineer BSC Group, M/E/P engineer Thompson Consultants and structural engineer Odeh Engineering.
