Ned Jennings, principal at FreemanWhite, has announced that the firm has been contracted by Pitt County Memorial Hospital in Greenville, N.C. to design the renovation of the hospital’s existing Vascular Lab #1. The project includes accommodating the requirements of new vascular equipment. Architectural and structural elements, as well as fire protection, plumbing, HVAC and electrical systems, will be modified as required to accommodate the renovation. The project area encompasses approximately 900 square feet.
“Pitt County Memorial Hospital is experiencing considerable growth, and we are grateful that they selected FreemanWhite to accommodate their needs on this project,” said Jennings. “This project will allow the hospital to enhance the quality of the vascular services it already provides by utilization of new and improved vascular equipment.”
