Southern Maine Health Care Behavioral Renovation
Constructing to unique behavioral health requirements.
Located at the Sanford Campus of Southern Maine Health Care Medical Center, this 21,000-square-foot renovation project provides space to care for adults in acute psychiatric crises. The 48-bed secure unit includes 24 semi-private rooms designed and constructed to support unique behavioral health requirements.
The facility features behavioral-specific safety features such as high-impact exterior windows, ligature-resistant fixtures, rescue hinges and soft suicide-prevention doors. Work also included infrastructure upgrades and renovations to the active emergency department to house five additional bays and space for security and offices.
