Self Regional Healthcare Old Main Demolition Master Plan

Rodgers has completed a major demolition and extensive renovation project at Self Regional Medical Center. In order to keep the hospital up-to-date on codes and improve the design and amenities, four floors of the central portion of the hospital affectionately referred to as “Old Main” (dating to the 1950s) were demolished along with mechanical penthouses. A new spacious and light-filled corridor leads from the front entrance to the opposite end of the hospital.


  • Multi-phase renovation program that involved the demolition of the top four floors of the Old Main Patient Tower


  • Renovation of the cafeteria and lab spaces on the first and second floors

  • New two-story, 4,000-square-foot atrium inside the main entrance

This project was completed within tight site constraints. Surrounded by campus buildings, careful planning and site logistics were executed to ensure the hospital’s surrounding buildings remained operational, undisturbed and dry throughout demolition. Built in the 1950s, the four stories that were demolished consisted of a concrete structure and brick facade. A temporary roof was built on top of the second floor in order to keep the bottom two floors intact and dry. Because of the close proximity to surrounding buildings, a tower crane was used to fly large pieces of concrete to a nearby demolition staging area where they were then removed from site. Once demolition was complete, the final layer of roofing was installed.
