Maugel DeStefano Architects has completed a five-phased renovation project at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, Mass. The multiyear renovations transformed the hospital's facilities and enhanced patient care and staff efficiency. This last phase concluded with the relocation and modernization of the hospital’s Central Sterilization Processing and Operating Suites.




Central Sterilization Processing was moved to a larger space that became available after renovations of the Inpatient Pharmacy and the LDRP suites were completed in a prior phase. The new suite’s larger footprint, state-of-the-art equipment, and closer proximity to the OR allowed for increased processing volume and a direct connection to the existing operating suite. The move also added space to the Same Day Surgery Pre & Post Operative suite, providing greater privacy for patients and a more efficient workflow and access for staff. Renovations within the Operating suite included a new operating room, nurse station, offices, anesthesia workroom, sterile storage, and expanded equipment storage.




Maugel DeStefano Architects has completed a variety of projects for Sturdy Memorial Hospital, ranging from advisory services to the design of a ground-up medical office building in Plainville, Massachusetts. The closeout of this phase marks the completion of a successful seven-year project with Sturdy Memorial Hospital to modernize their healthcare facilities and elevate the patient experience.

“Maugel DeStefano Architects’ healthcare design team, together with Columbia Construction and BR+A Engineers, has successfully undertaken substantial renovations in multiple areas of Sturdy Memorial Hospital, including the modernization of CT Imaging, Same Day Surgery, Inpatient Pharmacy, and LDRP,” said Architect Colby Cavanagh, healthcare and life science studio leader at Maugel DeStefano Architects. “We our pleased that our collective accomplishments have significantly enhanced the patient experience and improved the comfort and efficiency for Sturdy’s dedicated staff.”
