Our Midwest Associates commissioning team is hard at work wrapping up the Indiana University Health Frankfort Hospital project!
Wayne, one of MWA’s Commissioning Project Managers, has worked closely with the project delivery team to ensure the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems have been properly installed, fully integrated, and are operating at optimal performance.
The new facility includes: 12 inpatient beds, emergency care, lab services, pharmacy and imaging services, surgical suites, physical and occupational therapy, cardiovascular and pulmonary services, a helipad, staff patio lounge, public and patient therapy gardens, and greenspace with walking trails around the campus.
MWA is honored to be part of this important project. As our project partner arcDESIGN said, “the new IU Health Frankfort Replacement Hospital will be more than a hospital—it will be an entire health campus that will transform healthcare services in Clinton County. From surgery and imaging to prenatal care and cardiology, the hospital will offer patients and their families the care they need in their own community.”
In addition to testing the new equipment and controls, MWA conducted a blackout test to verify that in the event of a power outage all systems operate as expected on backup generator power. This is an essential part of commissioning hospitals and other critical facilities that rely on emergency power systems to continue normal operations during a worst-case scenario. Having worked on this project for nearly a year, Wayne expressed his satisfaction with the project, reflecting “we enjoyed working with the IU Health team to provide them with a safe workspace.”
