CBRE Healthcare and CoxHealth recently celebrated the topping out of the new 60,000-square-foot construction and renovation project at Cox Medical Center Branson in Missouri. This project will provide patients and staff access to a new emergency department, expanded coronary care unit and much more.
“This project will help us meet the growing needs of those who need us,” said William Mahoney, president and CEO of Cox Medical Center Branson. “It’s a statement of stability and confidence in our community.”
In order to make room for the new construction, the Medical Plaza Two building was demolished. Construction consists of a three-story, 42,000-square-foot hospital addition and an 18,000-square-foot renovation of space within the existing structure. In addition to the ED and CCU, construction also includes a third floor with shell space to allow for future expansion and growth.
Currently, the existing ED serves 37,000 patients per year. The new ED is being built with future growth in mind allowing providers to care for 55,000-60,000 patients each year. Improved work flow will allow for quicker patient access to services.
The expanded CCU will be on the second floor of the new structure and will connect to the hospital. It will include 20 private rooms, plus a large, comfortable waiting area for families. The current CCU/ICU has 14 patient beds.
CBRE Healthcare is currently providing CoxHealth Project Advisory Solutions that include: launch gap analysis; facilities planning committee organization; project work review and validation; master program schedule and budget development and maintenance; CON submission; project delivery team selection; project staffing plan and project implementation plan development. Involvement on the project will continue through occupancy.
Cox Medical Center Branson is expected to open in late 2014. To learn more about the project, visit CoxHealth. To see the topping out ceremony, visit Beam Camera.
