The new St. Charles Health System hospital in Prineville opened for business today and saw the first patients in the Emergency Room and at the Family Care Clinic. This new $30 million health care campus replaces the Pioneer Memorial Hospital and includes a primary care and specialty physician clinic along with hospital services including inpatient beds, an emergency department, surgery suites, a laboratory and imaging services.

BHE served as the mechanical engineer for the integrated design/build team of Neenan Company and Twin Rivers Plumbing for this project. Our scope of service included the plumbing system design, the medical and dental gas/vacuum systems, HVAC systems including a chilled and heated water system, direct digital control building automation system and energy efficiency requirements which resulted in energy use 20-25% below mandated codes.
