Renovate Pharmacy Design Build at the Fargo VA Medical Center
Fargo, ND VA Hospital
Department of Veterans Affairs
270 Calendar Days
This project for the Fargo VA is one of MDM’s Construction’s Design-Build awards. A new pharmacy area will be remodeled from an existing non-medical section in the hospital that will meet all current USP 800 requirements. This new remodel will have it fit in and adjust all surround HVAC and space usage restrictions. Design and capabilities had to include all handling of drugs including the receipt, storage, compounding, dispensing, administration, and disposal of sterile and non-sterile preparation of drugs.
The upgrades specific to this scope of work include a separate and enclosed space for receiving supplies, upgrades to heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) control, a separate area for processing medication for patient consumption (pill crushing), redundant sterile and non-sterile compounding containments, a separate space for sterile area cleaning supplies, and a mechanical and electrical space as required.
