Central DuPage Hospital
Garapolo & Associates
ICI’s project team began renovations to this 4,000 SF interior space at Central DuPage Hospital in early July 2011. The eight-week project transformed the hospital’s original Surgical Department on the 3rd floor of the East Building into new space for the Cytology Department.
Prior to beginning demolition of the existing space, ICI’s project team, management staff and subcontractors attended infectious disease training in order to adequately prepare for the many challenges presented by working in an occupied hospital.
Cytology, which is the study of cells to detect abnormalities, is used extensively to diagnose cancer, identify infectious organisms and in fetal screening for birth defects.
The space includes an Equipment Room, Work and Office Areas and a Break Room. Finishes include carpet tile, 2 x 2 acoustic ceiling tile, new doors and walls painted with CDH standard colors. ICI will also install new hot water booster coils to heat the space and provide connection to the existing hospital infrastructure.
