SUCF SUNY Stony Brook University Hospital, MRI Suite

Owner: SUCF SUNY/Stony Brook University

Architect: AECOM

Location: Stony Brook, NY

Size: 2,600 SF

Construction Cost: $5.8 Million

JFK&M provided mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering design services for the new MRI Suite at Stony Brook University Hospital. The 540-bed hospital is the largest academic medical center on Long Island and the only tertiary care hospital and Level 1 trauma center in Suffolk County. The project involved the removal of two existing MRIs with the installation of two replacement MRIs at a location that provided efficient patient access from the Hospital and the Emergency Department. The $5.8 million project included designing for the installation of a Siemens Magnetom Skyra 3T MRI scanner and a Siemens Magnetom Aera Dot 1.5T MRI scanner, as well as the design of two 400 square foot MRI rooms; a centrally located, a 200 square foot control room; a 360 square foot contrast/prep waiting area with three bed bays and a 150 square foot UPS room.

The MRI rooms feature complete magnetic shielding that has been installed in the walls, doors, floor, and ceilings. All systems and fixtures installed inside MRI rooms, including lights, HVAC ductwork, wiring and other hardware, were fabricated from non-magnetic materials. The new scanner support infrastructure includes two three-ton Krauss chillers and two 1.5-ton air conditioning units installed on the hospital’s roof. The project was performed on the fourth floor while the rest of the hospital remained operational.
