ST JOHN'S EPISCOPAL HOSPITAL (SJEH)
Morozov has been retained to take over design and construction administration of a 4-storey 38,000 SF teaching center on the campus of St. John's Episcopalian Hospital in Far Rockaway, Queens. St. John’s Episcopal Hospital is the only hospital providing emergency and ambulatory care to the densely populated, culturally and economically diverse, and medically underserved populations of the Rockaways and Five Towns in southern Queens County and southwestern Nassau County, New York. The 257-bed facility provides people of all faiths with comprehensive preventive, diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitative services, regardless of ability to pay.
The new teaching center was conceived as an expansion facility to relieve congestion and provide new state-of-the-art training and teaching areas to support residency programs. The center comprises of exam rooms, lecture halls, simulation rooms, offices and classrooms. Two floors are designed to be fully compliant with New York State Health Law Article 28. The basement floor will be a new home to the hospital's IT department including its data center. In addition, the new facility is conceived to serve an emergency community shelter.
Morozov team began the process with a comprehensive design review of all building systems designed by legacy engineer. In the course of the design review our team has found numerous opportunities for optimization of incoming services, sprinkler, mechanical and electrical systems, resulting in estimated $250,000 in construction cost savings to the project as well as savings in operating expenses.
