Angiography Imaging Suite

The CHA Angiogram Imaging Suite recently reopened at CHA Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Hollywood, California. An international client purchased the hospital two years ago and is embarking on a journey to bring patients from around the world to Southern California for a premiere boutique medical care experience. Kluger Architects, Inc. is the project architect for this multi-phased, multi-year transformation process.

At a cost of $917,103, the 981-square-foot suite is outfitted with the most modern angiographic equipment allowing the hospital to provide invasive procedures to its patients. The program consisted of the control room, procedure room, equipment room, scrub room, and workroom. A challenge to the design included installation of a ceiling mounted air handling unit, due to the lack of air volume for the required air changes.

The suite is part of the future CHA Cardiac Institute. Therefore finish materials were selected from the hospital’s new overall interior master materials, a color palette offering all patrons a fresh and spa-like atmosphere. Careful logistical planning allows the renovations to occur while the hospital continues to operate. From commencement the project took two months for construction documents, three months in OSHPD review, and six months for construction including OSHPD approvals to complete. This project completed on time and on budget.
