Carroll Hospital Cancer Center

Renovation and New Wing Bring Cancer Care Closer to Home

Carroll Hospital embarked on a two-phase construction project that included the first floor demolition of the existing building and the addition of a brand new, high-tech cancer center wing. On time delivery of the HVAC system was critical to minimizing disruption to the hospital’s day-to-day operations, including patient and employee activities. The Kaempf & Harris team adjusted to unexpected design-build challenges, overcame tight ceiling spaces (about 18 inches on average when 2 to 3 feet is normal) and wove the HVAC ductwork between and around the intricate network of medical equipment housed in an already tight ceiling space.

Kaempf & Harris finished their portion of the project well ahead of schedule, providing ample lead-time for the general and mechanical contracting teams to complete their work on time and within budget. Through strong coordination and teamwork with Carroll Hospital, Lend Lease and EMJAY Mechanical, cancer patients no longer have to travel to Baltimore for treatment. They can get great cancer care they need closer to home.
