The new patient wing addition is a primary feature of the multi-phase medical campus expansion, providing patients and visitors with increased comfort, safety and privacy. The facility includes four ICU rooms, three family birthing rooms, and thirteen medical and post-surgical patient rooms.

In addition to the new patient wing, the health campus expansion includes demolition and reconstruction of the main entry and lobby, a new main sewer line, upgrades to the hospitals main power system, and a new emergency room entrance with porte-cochere.

In order for the medical campus to remain completely operational during construction, communication with facilities staff played a critical role while the improvements were completed. Nunn paid particular attention to temporary signage and community outreach to ensure patients, visitors and staff were well informed of changes that occured during construction.
