10 Medical Construction & Design | JA N UA RY/ F EBRUA RY 2018 | MCDM AG.COM Projects completed & upcoming Alice Peck Day: Joseph St. Pierre Lexington Medical Center's Clinical Expansion Tops Out A topping-out ceremony was recently held for Lexington Medical Center's clinical expansion project in West Columbia, South Carolina. During the ceremony, the top beam was placed on a new patient care tower. The beam contains the signatures of hundreds of Lexington Medical Center employees who have signed it. The 550,000-square-foot tower will have eight fl oors for patient services. Initially, the hospital will open about 70 beds with the ability to open more in the future. More than 700 workers onsite have worked a total of 1 million man hours on the project so far. The project team includes Brasfi eld & Gorrie and Perkins+Will. Topping Out Sharp Hospital Offi cially Two Years from Opening After decades of planning, a new hospital in the South Bay of California is just two years away. Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center's new hospital — an addition to its existing 343-bed hospital — will add 138 large, private patient rooms. After breaking ground November 2016, construction recently reached the latest milestone as the final steel beam was placed. Roughly 3,580 pieces of steel were used to create the hospital's framework, weighing nearly 1,800 tons total. Once open, the $244-million hospital will also add six operating rooms, including the South Bay's only hybrid procedure room; a rooftop café and more to meet the needs of San Diego's South County region. The project team includes Hensel Phelps Construction, AVRP Skyport and SmithGroupJJR. Ground Broken for 3-Building Outpatient Campus for Summit Healthcare Ground was recently broken for three buildings totaling 174,778 square feet on an 18.81-acre outpatient campus adjacent to the Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center in Show Low, Arizona. The Summit Healthcare Outpatient Pavilion will be the center- piece of a new outpatient campus that will consolidate, expand and upgrade ambulatory services. The project consists of the Summit Healthcare Outpatient Pavilion, three stories, 103,866 square feet; Summit Healthcare Outpatient Surgery Center, one story, 16,213 square feet and Summit Healthcare Auxiliary Building, one story, 54,699 square feet, housing administra- tive offi ces, community meeting rooms and materials management space. Plans call for all three buildings to be completed near the end of 2018. The project team includes NexCore Group LLC, Orcutt Winslow, Haydon Build- ing Corporation and UEB Builders. The new 44,000-square-foot Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital Multi-Specialty Clinic, located on the APD campus in Lebanon, New Hampshire, houses most of the hospital's outpatient services in one location. E4H served as architect on the project, with DEW Construction as general contractor. Brought into one central location in the new clinic are services including primary and family care, pediatrics, women's care, diagnostic imaging, phlebotomy, orthopedics, general surgery and physical and occupational therapy. The two-story building is designed to improve patient and staff fl ow, communication and convenience. New Multi-Specialty Clinic Delivers Personalized Care in One Convenient Space
