West Babylon, NY Racanelli Construction Company, Inc., a construction management, general contractor and design/build resource for commercial, industrial, retail, medical, pre-engineered and multi-unit residential projects, completed the construction of a multi-discipline care facility for Good Samaritan Hospital of Catholic Health Services. The single-level facility located at 501A Montauk Hwy. features 9,735 s/f dedicated to multiple medical disciplines and a 4,020 s/f St. Charles Physical Therapy space.
The goal of the Catholic Health Services was to provide a variety of patient services in one location. Housed in the space are two primary care physicians, one cardiologist and one endocrinologist.
Racanelli Construction served as the general contractor. The Racanelli team on this project consisted of Project executive Richard Racanelli, project manager Vincent Barone, assistant project manager Michael Aniboli, project supervior Frank Zwolinski and project administrator Maria Franzone.
The project involved interior demolition and site work. Incorporated into the new structure were exterior awnings, an exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS), standing seam roof and metal panels, and masonry work on the existing building.
New framing/walls, ceilings, flooring, doors/frames/hardware, millwork/casework, storefront systems, paint, blinds, bathroom accessories, and all electrical, fire alarm, fire sprinkler, HVAC, and plumbing systems were installed.
The open-floor design encompasses 20 patient rooms, three procedure rooms, and private conference rooms. There also are doctor’s offices, stress/echo rooms, reception and waiting area and multiple nurse stations. Racanelli Construction applied a mix of building and design materials including concrete, asphalt, sand, crushed rock, masonry block, aluminum, wood, plastic, Corian, steel, glass, compound/caulking, tile, vinyl, carpeting and paint.
A pre-determined Department of Health inspection date required Racanelli Construction to adhere to a tight, expedited schedule. The project which began in September 2019 was completed in January 2020.
In late January 2020, the Catholic Health Services held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the new facility’s opening. The event was attended by Catholic Health Services Chief Administrative Officer Sunny Chiu who stated, “Having physicians in one place makes it easier. We’re integrating care with new technology to improve physician and patient experiences, while expanding Good Sam (Good Samaritan Hospital) into the community.”
