What’s behind those white walls at ARRMC
Containment walls are growing and parking will change again at ARRMC as renovations get underway at the gift shop, Radiation Oncology and Imaging.
The gift shop will move to the basement at the end of March to allow construction crews to connect the bed tower with the pavilion, starting on the first floor. The gift shop will close March 28 and reopen March 31 at Entrance C, next door to Pear Blossom Café. They’ll be moving inventory starting March 14.
Parking behind Imaging
Parking for physicians behind Asante Imaging-Murphy will disappear starting March 6 as crews relocate an underground oxygen line for the hospital in preparation for demolition of the building. Imaging is moving to ARRMC’s former Radiation Oncology space at the south end of the hospital in mid-June, and demolition of the Imaging building will begin in July. A new central utility plant will be built in that space to serve ARRMC’s needs well into the future.
Physicians who used the lot behind Imaging may park in the Medical Arts building parking lot across the street.
Crews began demolition and remodeling of the 12,710-square-foot Radiation Oncology space in January after the opening of the new Mary and Dick Heimann Cancer Center. See what it’s like inside at the moment.
Renovations will continue until mid-June, when Asante Imaging will move into its new digs. Included are two X-ray rooms where the radiation machines used to be, fluoroscopy imaging room, bone density room, three ultrasound rooms, three mammography rooms, a stereotactic breast biopsy room and reading and telemedicine rooms, as well as staff lounge, waiting area, dressing rooms, restrooms and offices.
“We call this ‘coordinated disaster,’” Hank Cardosa, project manager with ARRMC Facilities, says jokingly about the current state of renovations. “It looks like insanity going on there, but it’s very well-coordinated and planned out.”
