Sherman Construction provides new Emergency Room and Women’s Life Center at Laurens Hospital to improve care for the 30,000 ER visits each year. The new Emergency Room and Women’s Life Center were part of an overall expansion project where Sherman Construction provided preconstruction and construction services to develop the new 45,000 SF addition to the existing Laurens County Hospital.
The new emergency room space will double the number of rooms and square footage available for use at the hospital. Special design considerations were given to increase the privacy, while increasing overall healthcare efficiency with the new space.
The new 15,000 SF, patient-centered, family-friendly Women’s Life Center included five labor delivery and recovery rooms and 10 post-partum rooms, as well as overnight rooms for mothers and a baby nursery. The entire design was aimed to provide a warm, supportive experience for women and their families. A large conference room was included for Lamaze classes or any other classes the hospital wants to offer.
