Wilmot Sanz has assisted Howard County General Hospital: A Member of Johns Hopkins Medicine with the majority of the its capital improvement projects since 1995, including two major expansion and renovation efforts and over 50 minor renovation projects.

The implementation of the most recent Campus Development Plan provides the hospital with a new 90 bed patient care tower and adjacent parking structure. Also part of the tower are a new main lobby, pharmacy, and outpatient services department, including gyms for both cardiopulmonary and adult and pediatric rehabilitation. Renovations refit the hospital’s older patient tower, ultimately creating 62 private beds from the existing semi-private patient rooms. Additional renovations include a major redesign of the surgery department, a new laboratory department, new wound center, new MRI, new dialysis unit, and an expansion to the existing mother/child unit.

Past work on campus includes a west wing addition that houses a new, 47-bay emergency department, including a 12 room Pediatric ED and an adjacent six-bed pediatric inpatient nursing unit.  The project also included a 17-bed neonatal intensive care unit, a 12-bed labor/delivery suite, and expanded facilities for maintenance and engineering.  Major renovations created a new 16-bed intensive care unit and an expanded imaging department.
