VA SPS and Endoscopy Renovation and Relocation
Fort Meade, SD
Oculus Inc. provided all services for site investigations through Construction Period Services for the renovation and relocation of the Sterile Processing Services (SPS) and Endoscopy Department. The Endoscopy Department contains two Special Procedure Rooms, two Endoscopy Rooms, Scope Reprocessing, Scope Decontamination, Soiled Utility and Transition, Clean Utility and Linen, Admin workstations, Waiting and Consulting Rooms, and other support spaces. The SPS contains Soiled and Clean Elevators; Decontamination Area, Preparation, Assembly and Sterilization Area; Soiled Transition Room; Automatic Cart Wash; Cart Unloading; Steam Sterilization; Storage, Sterile Area; Dispatch Area; Locker Rooms; Admin Offices; and other support rooms.
Since both Endoscopy Department and SPS needed to remain in service during construction, Oculus coordinated with hospital staff and Facilities Engineering to establish a phasing schedule that includes the estimated construction time for the various areas to be repaired and/or replaced.
