Skanska Completes North Carolina Heart & Vascular Hospital
Skanska USA has completed work on the new North Carolina Heart & Vascular Hospital, which is now open on the main Raleigh campus of UNC REX Healthcare. The new hospital will house all of UNC REX’s heart and vascular services and is equipped with the latest technology for patient care and procedures.
The eight-story, 306,000-square-foot hospital includes 114 large patient rooms. The facility, which offers a lot of natural light, was designed to include heart-healthy features with input from patients, families, physicians and other experts.
The diagnostic and treatment floors include an outpatient diagnostic area to support the UNC heart program along with eight cardiac cath labs, and two hybrid operating rooms. These floors also include a conference center, a café and cardiac rehabilitation. Skanska also completed work on a new 400-car parking deck as well as a new helipad.
