In May of 2019 Summa Health open their doors to the new West Tower addition located on their main campus in Akron, OH. The seven-story 343,000 square foot tower features new private patient rooms, labor & delivery units, and new facilities for Summa’s Women’s Health program. Additional nursing units, a new conference center, and expanded medical surgery capabilities were also included. The expansion will help increase available care for the local community while modernizing the overall patient experience.
PIVOTEK was selected to provide design and manufacturing services for 135 patient bathrooms. “Bathroom pods” along with prefabricated headwalls, footwalls, building envelope elements, and MEP systems were procured and coordinated with the design and construction team. Combined, these solutions increased project productivity by months and greatly reduced site congestion, waste, and disturbance to the community, hospital staff, and patients.
