Chambersburg Hospital Addition Set for Summer Completion

ST. LOUIS — A new $72 million four-level addition is scheduled for summer completion at Chambersburg Hospital, an affiliate of Summit Health located in Chambersburg, Pa.

The new tower will include 174,000 square feet of new construction and 4,100 square feet of renovated space.

The addition will house 171 all-private patient rooms, a new cardiology and catheterization area, a new dialysis unit and a central utility plant.

The new private rooms will provide patients with a “quieter, more restful atmosphere” to help patients heal, said Norm Epstein, president and CEO of Chambersburg Hospital.

Architecture, engineering, construction services and site work will be provided by St. Louis, Mo.-based design and build firm HBE Corp.

“HBE enabled Chambersburg Hospital to achieve a superior design with larger private rooms and improved operational efficiencies while maintaining the quality specifications we require,” Epstein said. “HBE’s superior design and guaranteed lump sum price will help facilitate the execution of our 10-year facility plan via tremendous cost savings on our largest and most strategic project.”

The firm began construction on the addition in 2012, and expects it to complete in September 2012.
