KLMK Group, Inc. has been awarded the project-management contract for the emergency department and cardiology expansion project at Slidell Memorial Hospital in Slidell, La. Construction on the new facility is scheduled to begin in March 2012 and be completed by June 2013.
Slidell Memorial, an 182-bed acute care community hospital, is expanding its current facility. The renovation will include a 56,000-square-foot emergency room/cardiology expansion. The new facility will allow for shorter wait times, faster assessments, quicker discharges and more inpatient private beds. In addition, it will allow Slidell to prepare for future community growth while adding new technologies, equipment and physicians.
KLMK has been retained to provide program management services, from the design and pre-construction phase through transition, related to the renovation of the existing facility. “We value our relationship with Slidell Memorial and are excited about the opportunity to assist their team in expanding the services they deliver to the surrounding community,” stated Bill McMahon, KLMK president and COO.
