Prince George County, MD

May 19, 2020 – Southland Industries recently announced a new project award to install STAAT Mod™ Modular ICU Centers for Adventist HealthCare Fort Washington Medical Center and UM Prince George’s Hospital Center in Prince George County, Maryland. 

Ordered by the Maryland Department of General Services, the STAAT Mods (Strategic, Temporary, Acuity-Adaptable Treatment Mod) concept was created by HGA and The Boldt Company as a prefabricated, modular solution ready for immediate distribution. The STAAT Mods provide a solution to the escalating demand for more treatment space amid the COVID-19 global pandemic, providing additional support for medical centers and adding further isolation spaces for patients requiring isolation. They are compliant with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for Airborne Infection Isolation Rooms (AIIR). 

Southland’s services on this project included connecting the Mods once onsite, installing exterior ductwork for several rooftop units, installing natural gas piping for when heating needs arise later this year, and installing a plumbing/sprinkler container with incoming domestic water and a full chlorination system. 

With construction finishing in just under a month, the project will be completed by the end of May 2020. When complete, the project will offer 16 additional beds at each location — that can be configured for different uses — for patients to receive treatment in the applicable isolation rooms.
