OBSTETRIC AND ORTHOPAEDIC UNITS MOVE INTO DAVIS TOWER

The next two floors of the 14-story Davis Tower, one devoted to obstetrics and the other an orthopaedics/medical-surgical unit, are nearing completion.

The third floor will house state-of-the-art labor/delivery/recovery suites. The new facilities replace the old labor and delivery rooms in the hospital's North-South Wing, which is scheduled for demolition to comply with state seismic safety legislation.

The orthopaedics/medical-surgical unit will occupy the 14th floor and replace the old unit in the hospital's East Wing, which must be renovated to comply with the seismic safety legislation.

The completion of the obstetric and orthopaedic units represents the second phase of the Davis Tower. When the 454,000-square-foot structure opened in 1998, five of the floors were fully built out, three for patient care and two for handling the building's mechanical support systems.
