Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus is a replacement hospital serving a rapidly growing population in southern Delaware. The hospital’s previous location was landlocked with no room to grow without disrupting the residential communities that surround it. By moving its main campus to a 165-acre greenfield site, the hospital was able to gain seven times more space than its previous 22-acre location, giving it ample room to grow along with its community.
With a tight schedule and budget, the hospital was designed and delivered via Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) which lent itself to the success to delivering the building five months earlier than comparable replacement hospital projects. In addition to housing 128 private patient rooms and an expansive emergency and trauma center, the hospital includes a 70,000-SF outpatient center providing outpatient cancer care, rehabilitation, surgery, diagnostic services and more.
