Newport Hospital Pharmacy Renovations

Due to 2019 Federal Guideline changes, cancer centers across the country are required to upgrade their HVAC and clean rooms. The ruling went into effect so quickly, designers had to accelerate plans for upgrades to Lifespan’s five pharmacy locations. Pariseault was awarded all five projects, with three needing to be completed simultaneously on short notice. This location at Newport Hospital was the smallest at 900 square feet and had to be completed inside an existing fully functional hospital general pharmacy. The project included an extensive HVAC and exhaust scope to keep the required pressures in the cleanroom environment. Each location has three sterile clean rooms with automated sliding doors and one-way pass-throughs for the compounding of drugs. All finishes are easily cleanable with harsh cleaning products – epoxy paint, sheet vinyl floors and various solid surface countertops and shelves. This project was completed within the requested four-month time frame to keep the Cancer Center running with no delays. While the project was only for the clean room upgrades, the facilities requested an additional renovation of the surrounding 2000 square foot existing pharmacy flooring and painting. This involved a complicated shuffle of work stations in seven phases to complete the finish upgrades on a night shift while the pharmacy continued to operate 24 hours a day.
