Emory University Hospital in Atlanta completed an $87.7 million project to add two cardiovascular care facilities at its campus.

Housed on the third and fourth floors of Emory University Hospital Tower, the facilities feature a new 16-bed cardiovascular intensive care unit (CV-ICU), suite of new cardiovascular and thoracic operating rooms (ORs), catheterization laboratories (cath labs), and electrophysiology laboratories. McCarthy Building Companies (St. Louis) served as general contractor on the project; the company also built the 450,000-square-foot hospital tower, which opened in 2018.

The project team also includes Haskell Company (Jacksonville, Fla.) as the architect on the project, BDR Partners (Sandy Springs, Ga.) as program manager, and WSP (New York) as the engineering consultant.

McCarthy overcame several operational challenges during the project, according to a company news release, including installing four new air handling units and two chillers, requiring extensive coordination to navigate road closures, reroute buses for equipment delivery, and work around existing ductwork.
