Dacon was selected by the Wellness Center at MetroWest Medical Center to design/build a dedicated Women’s Imaging Center on the third floor of the existing facility and to make the modifications necessary for the addition of a new, state-of-the-art CT scanner to the first floor imaging department. The 6,500 SF interior renovation project had to take place with minimal disruption to the rest of the busy medical facility.
The Women’s Imaging Center features two breast ultrasound suites and four digital mammography suites, as well as an inviting veranda-style café. The imaging department also houses a bone mineral density scanner. Dacon’s services included preparing for and obtaining the necessary approvals from Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
Framingham Union Hospital: Interventional Radiology
The Dacon team also worked with MetroWest at Framingham Union Hospital on the design, construction and installation of a new Interventional Radiology Room. This project included reworking existing space to house a new Philips Allura FD20 Machine. To accommodate this equipment, room shielding and system supports were installed and additional file, conference, waiting, and control areas were completed.
Framingham Union Hospital: Emergency Department
Using Target Value Design, Dacon completed a 1,000 SF expansion and renovation of the emergency department at Framingham Union Hospital. The project involved adding two rapid medical exam rooms, upgrading the triage room, adding a physician dictation room, and expanding and upgrading the EMT lounge.
Dacon’s successful delivery of this design/build project has improved physician flow for faster patient access, improved the patient registration process, and enhanced patient privacy in this fast-paced medical setting. Dacon’s team also prepared and obtained the necessary approvals from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
