WVU Medicine Berkeley Medical Center reopened two operating rooms (ORs) damaged by flooding due to a construction mishap in an ongoing expansion of the hospital’s first floor, according to a news release.

The hospital was forced to close all 10 of its operating rooms in late May after a breach between the first and second floors allowed rainwater to enter the units.

The remaining ORs are expected to be back in service by mid-July.

The first-floor expansion, originally estimated to cost $37.8 million, includes a 14,000-square-foot addition and 20,000 square feet of renovations, according to a news release.

The project will expand perioperative, clinical, and laboratory space and add a 20-bed observation unit and a neurointerventional biplane suite for stroke, brain, and spine care. Cardiovascular surgery capabilities will also be expanded by combining two smaller ORs into a hybrid OR with advanced procedural space and an image-guided interventional suite.
