SR Construction recently participated in a Topping Out Ceremony for their Centennial Hills Hospital New Patient Tower project. The commemorative ceremony, hosted by Centennial Hills Hospital, celebrated the project’s continued progress with the placing of the last steel beam on its five-story patient tower.
“SR Construction is proud to be the design-builder for this monumental project with our long-time valued clients, UHS, The Valley Health System and Centennial Hills Hospital,” said Bret Loughridge, vice president of operations for SR. “This ceremony marks a milestone in the construction of this new patient tower, a moment for us to recognize the progress that has been made and the approaching completion of the project.”
Prior to placement, hospital employees, representatives from SR Construction, and trade workers signed the white beam before it was hoisted to the top of the building. The tower is comprised of 1150 tons of steel, and building completion is scheduled for early 2021.
Phase one of the project, valued at an estimated $95 million, will add 56 patient beds, increasing the total bed count from 262 to 318 beds. This addition will provide increased capacity in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and Medical Surgical Units across the hospital. The project will also expand key departments, including the pharmacy, lab, surgical services and the post-anesthesia care unit.
