Replacement Hospital

John and Mary E. Kirby Hospital

Monticello, Illinois

Kirby Hospital is a new 16-bed critical access replacement hospital located in a 100-acre greenfield development. The new Kirby Hospital is the key piece of a new medical district that ill also includes a medical office building for Kirby Hospital and a separate medical office building owned by Carle Hospital.

Henneman Engineering was responsible for the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, medical gas, and information technology design for this 52,286-square-foot hospital. Designed as a critical access hospital, Kirby features two operating rooms, sixteen patient rooms, an X-Ray and CT Imaging Suite, and is built to receive mobile MRI and PET imaging services. A full service hospital, Kirby also includes an emergency room, pharmacy, GI laboratory, sleep lab, a full diagnostic laboratory, and pediatric and well-woman care areas.

The architecture of the hospital mimics that of the town’s historic districts, while the tower element and roofline are reminiscent of a nearby house. Diagnostic services, the 18,091-square-foot integrated medical office building, outpatient waiting, and food services are all visible from the vestibule and accessed off the concourse.
Henneman Engineering also designed integrated medical office building attached to the new hospital, and a separate 12,000-square-foot medical office building on the Kirby campus for Carle Hospital.
