Orange Regional Medical Center has completed and opened its new replacement hospital in the Town of Wallkill in Middletown, N.Y. Jones Lang LaSalle's Project and Development Services (PDS) group served as project manager for the 621,000-square-foot, $270 million hospital project starting in the summer of 2007. Orange Regional Medical CenterThe facility was the first new replacement hospital built in the state of New York in the past 20 years and the first hospital constructed in the state using the design-build process, which combines design, permit and construction schedules to reduce costs and completion time as compared to traditional modern construction contract methods. Jones Lang LaSalle’s PDS executives managed a team of planning, design and construction professionals who worked together to complete their tasks at the same time.

The project team included Vincent Knoll, project executive and vice president with Jones Lang LaSalle’s healthcare practice, Michael Kirschner, project manager, and Charles Maggio, senior vice president and national director of the company’s healthcare practice.

Orange Regional Medical Center knew it needed a qualified team to lead this effort and reached out to Jones Lang LaSalle early in the process, which was a key factor in achieving such a successful outcome,” said Knoll. “Through our detailed oversight of the endeavor and project management practices and tools, we were able to complete the replacement hospital on budget and allow the organization to consolidate into the new facility in early August 2011 as originally scheduled.”

The 383-bed replacement hospital was designed to be more efficient and to better serve the more than 390,000 people that live in the surrounding communities. The new facility was constructed on a vacant 63-acre site on East Main Street near the Route 17 and I-84 interchange. It features a state-of-the-art, patient-centered hospital with approximately 1,700 parking spaces, all private patient rooms, an emergency department with 50 treatment bays for varying levels of emergencies, spacious operating suites, and wireless infrastructure to accommodate the latest digital healthcare technology.

This project is a great example of Jones Lang LaSalle’s leadership in the healthcare arena in the New York area and around the nation,” said Maggio. “Orange Regional Medical Center originally selected Jones Lang LaSalle for our ability to handle even the most challenging construction projects and because of our experience with the New York State Department of Health, which has never before approved a design-build hospital in the state. Our success with the design-build process reinforced the DOH’s confidence in Jones Lang LaSalle and highlighted the company’s experience with large, complex healthcare construction projects.

Orange Regional Medical Center was created in 2001 following the merger of Arden Hill Hospital and Horton Medical Center. On Aug. 5, 2011, the organization consolidated both hospital campuses into its new state-of-the-art facility. Orange Regional Medical Center plans to sell its two older facilities to fund a portion of the construction costs of the new hospital.
