MILWAUKEE, Wis, and CLEVELAND, Ohio – Hammes Company has been engaged by The MetroHealth System to collaborate on the $1-billion campus transformation in Cleveland, Ohio.
The cornerstone of the campus transformation will be a new 12-story hospital tower with 270 private rooms offering advantageous views north to downtown and south to green space. The tower also will house an extensive range of departments, including medical/surgery, burn labor/delivery/recovery, anti-partum, post-partum, NICU, pediatrics, pharmacy, cardiopulmonary, interventional radiology, imaging, linear accelerator, endoscopy, neurology, administration, kitchen, lobby, support services and other areas tied to general hospital operations.
Other essential projects in the campus transformation include a connector building to the existing critical care pavilion, parking garage, new loading dock, central utility plant and helipads.
The project will apply Lean delivery principles designed to eliminate waste, maximize every dollar, improve workflow, reduce patient wait times, improve safety and enhance the overall delivery of care.
For the duration of the six-year project, subject matter experts from Hammes Company, Moody and Signet will work in a collaborative environment.
Turner Construction Co. will lead construction management. Hammel, Green and Abrahamson Inc. will serve as master architect and engineer for the project.
