The Arnhold Emergency Department provides acute care services for Connecticut’s largest municipality, with a catchment area extending beyond New Milford into surrounding towns and New York State. Construction of the new emergency department was the 18th project completed by O&G for New Milford Hospital.
Work included the construction of 14 treatment rooms, a dedicated isolation room, a critical care room, behavioral care rooms, obstetric and pediatric examination rooms, triage and fast-track exam rooms, a waiting room, and clinicians’/nurses’ workstations. The old emergency department was renovated for administrative offices, on-call rooms, and bathrooms.
Hospital administration rated O&G’s compliance with infection control procedures and noise abatement as “outstanding.” The project finished ahead of schedule and returned close to $200,000 of a set-aside contingency fee.
