Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital Chronic Care Center
The newly named hospital proposed the renovation of unoccupied space into a comprehensive chronic care center that includes Physical Therapy, Cardiac and Pulmonary Therapy and Occupational Therapy. Caring for more than 270,000 patients from around the Hudson Valley annually, Rehabilitation at Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall is a state-of-the-art treatment center for these patients. The center is partnered with Montefiore’s Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in White Plains.
Holt Construction Corp. commenced the full demolition on the selected space, which previously housed an active kitchen and cafeteria area. In combined efforts to mitigate any safety and disruptive concerns, Holt coordinated weekly meetings with the Hospital and design team in order to discuss and plan for any shut downs, deliveries, and other construction activities that may have impacted ongoing patient care.
Included in the scope of work was concrete saw cutting of the floor in order to allow for the underslab plumbing, in addition to demolishing the original structure down to the walls; to begin the build-out for the newly proposed space. A hydraulic wall cutting machine (which is able to cut through existing concrete and masonry walls) was utilized to cut through the walls of two adjoining spaces in order to combine them to create a larger, more efficient space.
