LiRo is providing architectural and engineering design services for a new infirmary building for the Westchester Correction Department. The new facility, which is being phased to minimize interruption of the existing facility, will replace the old outdated infirmary.
About the Project
The infirmary facility will consist of two buildings. The first building is the infirmary treatment facility and housing unit, totaling approximately 13,500 sf, which includes medical examination and treatment areas. The new unit will also contain several isolation suites, a day room for infirmed inmates, and operation areas for support staff. The second building is a new suicide watch suite building which is approximately 3,000 sf and will be situated adjacent to the infirmary. This will be served by staff support spaces within the infirmary.
