In 2009, Saunders completed our first project with DHHA — the Denver Health & Teammates for Kids project. Since then, Saunders has worked on over 60 projects for the hospital and was qualified as one of their four on-call contractors to perform express services throughout the hospital.
DHHA Ebola Preparedness
Denver Health Medical Center is one of 10 regional Ebola or other highly infectious disease treatment centers. After a world-wide outbreak of Ebola in 2014, DHHA was given a grant to build an Ebola Preparedness unit to effectively treat infected patients in a safe environment. This unit was completed as a renovation to an existing area of the hospital.
In order to properly contain Ebola when treating an infected patient, the unit must meet unique isolation and airborne restrictions. The construction of such spaces requires unique MEP systems and exclusive air quality constraints. This renovation, meeting BSL 3 compliance, required a mechanical exhaust package that demanded heavy coordination with the existing facility in regards to shut downs, tie-ins, methods of procedures (MOP’s) and infection control measures.
Throughout two months of occupied renovations, Saunders was able to work around critical area staff and patient spaces without a single disruption to the hospital. Saunders used multiple infection control phasing efforts to ensure patient safety with minimal invasive construction activities.
PAV C Ultrasound
Saunders completed remodels for DHHA in four critical rooms of the hospital that generate a significant amount of money: the Ultrasound Room, Blood Draw Room, Point of Care room and the Probe room. This fast track, four-phased project included basic remodels and updates to fixtures, lighting, doors, flooring, drywall and paint. With schedule being a main concern for the hospital, Saunders’ crews worked off hours, night shifts and weekends to get each phase completed on time.
