Calhoun Construction completed an upgrade to the existing pharmacy inside the Norton Brownsboro Hospital. This intricate work began in August of 2019 and completed just before the 2020 New Year. With the tight quarters of working in about a 600 sqft space, coordination was key in this project.
The inside of their IV Room, Chemo Room and Ante Room were completely stripped of all finishes, new exhaust fan installed on the rooftop, and fan powered heap filters on the supply air diffusers. A new Clean Room wall system was put in place with all automatic interlocking doors, and the ceiling tiles replaced with Clean Room gasketed tiles. Strict measures were taken for the duration of the project to ensure the safety of not only the pharmacy employees but the patients throughout the hospital. We constructed an Edge Guard Wall System around the work area, while using hepa-filtered air scrubbers to maintain a negative air pressure of -.03 in the workspace. To offer further protection from contamination an Ante room was also put in place for the cleaning of all tools, debris carts, and personnel exiting the workspace.
This successful project resulted in the Brownsboro Pharmacy following all requirements of the Board of Pharmacy as well as future requirements from the Joint Commission.
