Hoar Construction completed a new inpatient cardiovascular unit at Shelby Baptist Medical Center in Alabaster, Alabama. The $4.5 million project broke ground in May of 2022 and welcomed its first patients this month.  

Located on the hospital’s second floor, the 11,000-square-foot unit includes six critical care rooms, eight step-down rooms and three nurses’ stations, allowing the hospital to provide intensive and step-down care for cardiac patients within the same floor. It is now integrated with the ICU unit, allowing cardiac patients to move from surgery and immediately into their rooms, which gives doctors more flexibility in providing the best care for their patients. The unit also features modern design with larger patient rooms that are all equipped with advanced medical technology. 

Throughout construction, Hoar encountered multiple unforeseen conditions within the 60-year-old facility. The project team, along with their design partner Poole and Company, had to develop solutions and implement them without interrupting ongoing operations at the hospital. Rigorous infection control protocols were also used during every phase of the buildout to ensure the safety of hospital staff and patients.
