8 Medical Construction & Design | JA N UA RY/ F EBRUA RY 2018 | MCDM AG.COM Sakakawea LaCasse Photography; Methodist: HKS Projects completed & upcoming A topping-out event was held for the $275-million, 450,000-square-foot patient tower at Methodist Uni- versity Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Construction of the tower, which will be named in honor of former longtime Methodist CEO Gary Shorb, is offi cially half- way complete. Work is slated for completion in the spring of 2019. The Integrated Project Delivery team includes Turner Construction Company, Self+Tucker Architects, archimania, HKS, Inc. and Allen & Hoshall. The new patient tower is part of the hospital's campus expansion project, which also includes a 700-space parking plaza that was recently com- pleted. The tower will allow for the consolida- tion of the hospital's transplant services into a two-fl oor inpatient/outpatient comprehensive transplant institute. It will also connect the oncol- ogy and outpatient care to create a new cancer center. The eight-story tower is being constructed on top of the existing emergency department. Replacement Facility Expands Healthcare Services to Rural North Dakota The new Sakakawea Medical Center integrates both a critical access hospital and a community health center into a primary care medical neighborhood for the residents of Mercer, Oliver and Dunn counties in Hazen, North Dakota. The Neenan Company served as the Design-Build partner for the proj- ect, with the new 55,300-square-foot facility replacing the previous medical center built in 1969. The facility features updated diagnostic technology and expansions to the clinic, emergency room and surgical area, while also supporting enhanced community outreach programs. The hospital features a Lean, patient- centric design that provides easy acces- sibility and navigation for comprehensive patient care. The new clinic delivers a centralized clinical care team space for timely, responsive, collaborative pa- tient care by and between physicians, providers, nurses and technicians. The new facility implements modern design techniques aimed at improving patient satisfaction and outcomes, while reduc- ing nursing standby costs from staffi ng individually separated departments.
