The Mercy Children's Hospital remodel was completed in two phases during 2011-2012. The project encompassed 40 pediatric patient care rooms, staff kitchen, 8 PICU rooms, procedure and treatment rooms and more. 


This endeavor presented numerous challenges. Located on the 3rd floor of an 9 story wing originally constructed in 1979, each of the 22 plumbing stacks had to be relocated to accommodate the new space configuration. The 5 floors above consist of patient rooms that are in use 24/7/365. The 2nd floor consists of Administration Offices and other support functions. Coordination of the work was paramount in keeping the hospital up and running throughout the 18 month project.

The existing HVAC system did not meet current standards. Due to its configuration, a new roof mounted equipment room had to be lifted in pieces over the existing 9 story facility to its location outside the Children's Hospital.

Existing floor to floor height limitations, coupled with the desire for higher ceilings, dictated that all Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Protection systems had to fit within as little as 9" clearances. Wolin met the challenge.

The end result is of this project is exceptional care for not only the patients, but thier families as well.
