Rhode Island Hospital
Bridge Building



Rhode Island Hospital is the largest hospital in southeastern New England, with the region’s only Level 1 trauma facility. This challenging project—known as the “Bridge Building” - created a major expansion of the hospital’s emergency department and operating room facilities directly over a major city street. It also included a new underground parking structure and elevated ambulance drop-off plaza. The project was awarded the Associated General Contractor Merit Award (2006).

  • Phase 1 included the underground garage, new Emergency Department, a new surgery suites level, and a two-story high mechanical space
  • Phase 2, constructed 4 years later, included three new levels of bed floors, and a three-level cantilevered pedestrian bridge extending to a dramatic new 100’ tall elevator and stair tower adjacent to the building.

Odeh was the structural engineer for all phases of work, with WSP Flack and Kurtz acting as MEP engineers.
