Samuel Simmonds Memorial Hospital

The scope of relocation included:

  • Warehousing Distribution
  • Placement, Installation and Assembly

Location: Barrow, Alaska

Length of project: 3 months

Workspace Innovations’ relocation division was given the exceptional opportunity to relocate this beautiful Alaskan hospital. The new facility includes many expanded departments in its more than 100,000 square feet of space — four times larger than the old hospital — as well as the area’s first physical therapy and optometry departments. The dental clinic, which houses state of the art equipment, not to mention some of the best views in Barrow, has expanded three times from its old facility. Eight single patient rooms and 14 outpatient rooms make service to Atqasuk, Kaktovik, Nuiqsut, Point Hope, Point Lay and Barrow more feasible than before, as do two labor and delivery rooms.
