Torcon was CM for an ED addition at Ocean University Medical Center in Brick, NJ. The 145,000 SF new building was constructed adjacent to the existing ED. The new Harair and Anna Hovnanian Emergency Care Center occupies the building’s entire 45,000 SF first floor. Shelled space is provided on the upper floors for future programs. A new materials management operations area with loading dock was created at the basement level to expand the current support services for the hospital. The building was also designed to structurally support an additional three floors.

The 49-bed emergency room is divided between express care rooms for those who suffer minor injuries to large rooms that will house critically ill patients. There is also a dedicated, brightly-colored pediatric section of the emergency department that will serve children and their families. The behavioral health portion of the emergency room is secured and monitored.

The hospital also features three triage rooms, three resuscitation rooms, 49 private patient bays and an express care station.

Construction included a 100 ft. long vehicular bridge spanning the basement level loading. The bridge is supported by precast beams manufactured in Pennsylvania and trucked across the state.
