The Christ Hospital Joint & Spine Center was a $280 million, 332,000-square-foot, 7-story expansion. This addition added ​​​87 private patient rooms and 12 surgical suites custom designed and manufactured for joint and spine care. In addition to added patient rooms, the expansion included dedicated gathering spaces and lounges for family and visitors, advanced rehabilitation facilities, physician and administrative offices, and conference and training facilities.

The Christ Hospital Joint & Spine Center patient space and bathrooms called for the highest quality in custom finishes applied across three different configurations – all of which needed to account for a zero-height transition from patient room to bathroom. Superior production standards, custom manufacturing capabilities, and adaptability is, ultimately, what made this project well suited for manufactured building components. All parties agreed that PODS were the right solution, but it was PIVOTEK’s innovation around the no-threshold slab issue that made this project a reality and led The Christ Hospital Group to add 30 additional PODS to their original order, for a total of 90 PODS for this project.

Christ Hospital Joint and Spine Center – Prefabrication Analysis

“PIVOTEK was instrumental in making this value added scope of work a success from beginning to end. They assisted our team early on in the vetting process to see if PODS were a viable option from a cost, constructability and schedule standpoint. In terms of overall quality and schedule, PIVOTEK performed beyond expectations with a very difficult design, in terms of tolerances and high end product selection. I would welcome the opportunity to do another project with PIVOTEK.”
