UAB Breaks Ground on New Facility


 

UAB has broken ground for a new freestanding emergency department and adjacent medical office building in Gardendale.

The two buildings, which will be connected to each other on a 6.2-acre site in the Gardendale city center, are scheduled for completion in spring 2019. Construction will cost $22 million, with a total project budget of $33.9 million. The site is at the intersection of Mount Olive Parkway and Flippo Road. Brasfield & Gorrie is the general contractor. Sims Architectural Studio is the architect for the emergency department, and Gresham Smith & Partners for the medical office building.

The freestanding emergency department will have 26,700 square feet of space and provide a full range of emergency medicine services staffed around the clock by physicians who are board-certified in emergency medicine. The facility will have an FAA-compliant heliport, advanced MRI/CT/X-ray imaging, 12 exam rooms, a bariatric lift, laboratory services, and a pharmacy. The emergency department will be capable of performing trauma care and will have facilities for isolation and decontamination.

The 38,400-square-foot, two-story medical office building will offer primary care, obstetrics, gastrointestinal care, orthopedics, cardiology, neurology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology and specialty care programs. It will feature a diagnostic imaging suite, lab services, telemedicine and digital public interface kiosks.

Together, the two medical facilities will employ more than 100 staff, including physicians, nurses, laboratory technicians, other medical professionals and office staff.
