The project will upgrade approximately 9,289 gross square feet of space on the seventh floor of the East Wing of the Main Hospital Complex. This project would reactivate the area with 22 licensed medical surgery beds in space vacated by the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in 2011.
This construction within existing shell space is a minor alteration of an existing structure. The project would include interior improvements to building systems and construction of interior space. The project does not expand the building area. The project would have no potential to result in potentially significant impacts and would result in no exceptions to the exemption.
