March 29, 2024 - Spotlights



Attleboro, MA Maugel DeStefano Architects has completed a five-phased renovation project at Sturdy Memorial Hospital. The multi-year renovations transformed the hospital’s facilities and enhanced patient care and staff efficiency. This last phase of the project concluded with the relocation and modernization of the hospital’s central sterilization processing and operating suites. 

The scope of this final phase relocated central sterilization processing to a larger space that became available after renovations of the inpatient pharmacy and the LDRP suites were completed in a prior phase. The new suite’s larger footprint, state-of-the-art equipment, and closer proximity to the operating room allowed for increased processing volume and a direct connection to the existing operating suite. The move also added space to the same-day surgery pre- and post-operative suite, providing greater privacy for patients and a more efficient workflow and access for staff.  Renovations within the operating suite included a new operating room, nurse station, offices, anesthesia workroom, sterile storage, and expanded equipment storage. 



The closeout of this phase marks the completion of a successful seven-year project with Sturdy Memorial Hospital to modernize their healthcare facilities and elevate the patient experience. 

Maugel DeStefano Architects has completed a variety of projects for Sturdy Memorial Hospital, ranging from advisory services to the design of a ground-up medical office building in Plainville, Mass.

“Maugel DeStefano Architects’ healthcare design team, together with Columbia  and BR+A Engineers, has successfully undertaken substantial renovations in multiple areas of Sturdy Memorial Hospital, including the modernization of CT imaging, same day surgery, inpatient pharmacy, and LDRP,” said architect Colby Cavanagh, healthcare studio lead at Maugel DeStefano Architects. “We are pleased that our collective accomplishments have significantly enhanced the patient experience and improved the comfort and efficiency for Sturdy’s dedicated staff.”
