New Bed Tower to Improve the Environment for Patients and Staff at Mount Nittany Health
Barton Healthcare is providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design services for a new 10-floor, 300,000 square-foot addition to the existing Mount Nittany Medical Center. The new state-of-the-art bed tower will include 168 private patient rooms as well as outpatient facilities, a parking deck, new main lobby, and will replace the existing kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining, Servery and reflection areas.
The new bed tower will feature new “pandemic response rooms” to aid the facility in meeting the patient population needs during potential future pandemics or emergency health crises.
The project includes Central Energy Plant to house the new chilled water cooling and emergency power generation systems for the facility. The existing high pressure steam plant, medical gas source equipment and the primary electrical service to the Mount Nittany Medical Center will all be replaced to support the new facility.
