The campus will feature state-of-the-art morgue facilities, medical machinery, and treatments, so it requires state-of-the-art HVAC, plumbing, and ventilation.
Satterlee Plumbing, HVAC, and Mechanical Contractors has been doing what they do best for over a century. They’ve built a reputation for integrity and service providing both residential and commercial services. Specifically, Satterlee has provided services to several medical facilities in the area including Integris in Miami and Grove, the Galena Hospital and Surgery Center, Via Christie in Pittburg, the Autism Center in Joplin, and the new Mercy Hospital in Joplin.
So when Kansas City University’s Medical and Biomedical School was looking for experts to build their Joplin campus for Osteopathic Medicine, they hired Satterlee.
A facility for educating future medical professionals is more than just building walls for a classroom. The KCUMB-Joplin campus will provide hands-on experience with modern medical technology. The campus will feature state-of-the-art morgue facilities, medical machinery, and treatments, so it requires state-of-the-art HVAC, plumbing, and ventilation.
HVAC provides heating and cooling for the comfort of students and faculty. But temperature and humidity control are also essential for proper function for life-saving machines and equipment.
Ventilation systems and hot and cold water piping are also common commercial services, but most commercial jobs don’t include biomedical waste, treatments and morgue accommodations. The school also needs piping for medical gas such as oxygen and nitrous oxide.
