Stroger Hospital Trauma, Burn and Rehabilitation Unit Renovation

The Trauma, Burn & Rehabilitation Unit at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County is one of the largest trauma and burn surgery departments in the nation. More than 400 patients were admitted last year with thermal, chemical and electrical burns, soft tissue wounds and complex diseases. Located on the first floor of the hospital near the Emergency Department, the trauma area includes 15 trauma resuscitation bays, 12 trauma intensive care beds and a 10-bed trauma observation area where patients who require frequent assessment during the first 24 hours post injury are monitored. The burn unit has a six-bed intensive care unit and up to 12 convalescent beds.

As part of a large-scale renovation of the Stroger Hospital campus, Cook County Health and Hospital Systems hired architecture firm Perkin + Will’s to remodel and expand the Unit. As a subcontractor to Perkin + Will’s, Level-1 designed the telecommunication, AV and security systems for the new Unit.

Scope notes:

Develop a telecommunications system program concept that includes an analysis of each facet of the telecommunications system such as type of cable to be used, termination hardware and supporting apparatus, system requirements (including conduit, wiring, electrical and thermal heat load requirements) and alternative concept (“Telecommunications Program”). .2 Submit Telecommunications Program to Client and Owner for review and approval. Based on concepts accepted by Client, prepare a preliminary construction cost estimate and revise the Telecommunications Program to reflect Client-accepted concepts. b. Design Development Phase Services. During the Design Development Phase, Consultant will: .1 Update Telecommunications Program, as required. .2 Based on approved Telecommunications Program, prepare design development documents for This Portion of the Work which include, without limitation, demolition documents, drawings showing equipment locations, riser diagrams and other pertinent data for the telecommunications system, and preliminary technical specifications of the components required for telecommunications system for issuance for building (“Telecommunications Design Development Documents”).

Based on further developed design team documents, refine the audio/visual system program report (“A/V Program”). .2 Submit Final A/V Program to Client and Owner for review and approval. Based on concepts accepted by Client, prepare a preliminary construction cost estimate and revise the A/V Program to reflect Client and Owner accepted concepts. .3 Prepare preliminary documents which include, without limitation, drawings showing equipment locations, control devices, riser diagrams and other pertinent data for the audio/visual system, and preliminary technical specifications of the components required for a complete audio/visual system for issuance for building.
