Design-Build Replacement Project for $305M Fort Leonard Wood Hospital Underway

The $305-million Fort Leonard Wood Hospital replacement project, located in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, is being administered through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Kansas City District for the Defense Health Agency.

Fort Leonard Wood, located in the Missouri Ozarks, is home to the 102nd Training Division (Maneuver Support) and Missouri’s 35th Engineer Brigade. The hospital services 34,000 beneficiaries within a 40-mile radius of the Fort Leonard Wood. The design and construction of the hospital campus is expected to take 48 months to complete. The project will feature a 235,376-square-foot hospital, 193,332-square-foot medical clinic, a 20,459-square-foot central utility plant, a five-bay ambulance garage and supporting facilities. Once complete, the existing 450,000-square-foot hospital will be demolished.

The Design-Build proposal provides for a world-class healthcare facility that rivals those found in the civilian sector, pays homage to the rich history of Fort Leonard Wood and takes advantage of the site’s rolling terrain. The aesthetic creates a welcoming environment, an intuitive layout and masses the building to provide a humanscale and visual interest, while the materials respect the surrounding region.

The design and construction team includes JE Dunn Construction, RLF, Olsson Engineering, Land3 Studio, MMC Contractors, Guarantee Electrical and Bloomsdale Excavating Company, as well as 20 other sub-consultants and trade partners.
