Brookhaven Memorial Hospital
Knapp Cardiac Care Center
Lizardos designed MEPS systems for the new Knapp Cardiac Care Center at Brookhaven Memorial Hospital. The project involved the construction of a 72,000 SF hospital addition plus the renovation of 12,000 SF of existing hospital space. The addition is primarily for cardiac care and provides four (4) new operating rooms, a catheterization lab, an EP lab, pre-post procedures, PACU’s, nuclear medicine suite, main lobby, and related support space. Lizardos provided the HVAC, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design for the addition and renovated spaces.
In addition to the Cardiac Center design, Lizardos also designed an upgrade to the Hospital’s basic MEP infrastructure in support of the addition. The infrastructure upgrade included a dedicated boiler plant to serve the steam heating, hot water and domestic water heating needs of the addition and included the installation of three (3) new Scotch Marine, horizontal firetube boilers and a dedicated Clean Steam Generation system consisting of vertical stainless steel tubeless boilers to handle the sterilizers and humidification needs.
Lizardos also designed an upgrade to the normal and emergency power systems at the Hospital to provide separation of power, and correct certain system deficiencies. New medical gas source equipment and a new fire pump rounded out the infrastructure system design in support of this project.
