DeKalb Medical Center

Main Campus Building and Patient Tower

Salas O’Brien provided electrical engineering for the new Patient Tower at the DeKalb Medical Center’s main campus located in Decatur, Georgia. This approximately 100,000-square-foot facility specializes in mother and infant care and includes emergency rooms, C-section rooms, postpartum rooms, nurseries, and labor, delivery, and recovery rooms.

The facility was designed electrically to be served from the main campus’s existing 4160V normal and emergency power distribution systems in conjunction with 4160V to 480V substations located in the basement of the new facility.
