The facility includes 211 beds, 13 operating rooms, an emergency department and a complete utility distribution plant with heat exchangers, pumps, heat pumps, chillers, emergency generators and electrical switchgear.

Beyond traditional HVAC commissioning, EXP provided electrical commissioning for the critical power systems. EXP also commissioned the low voltage systems – nurse call, fire alarm and security systems – which are critical for the well-being of the patients.
