Mercy Health Kings Mills Tops Out
Members of GBBN recently joined representatives from Mercy Health, Danis Construction, and the Mason community to celebrate a milestone at Mercy Health’s new Kings Mills Hospital.
The beam-signing and topping out ceremony marks the placement of the final structural beam on top of the new hospital.
Mercy Health Kings Mills Hospital President, Jason Asic, celebrated convenience and the wide range of services that will be available upon the hospital’s completion. “People are going to be able to get the bulk of their care here,” he said. “We’re excited to add a vital access point… and to give patients a choice closer to home.”
With an emphasis on cardiology and orthopedics, the new facility will also include a complete emergency department, imaging services, four operating rooms, a catheterization lab with interventional radiology services, and an adjacent medical office building which will host specialty services. The site also has room to accommodate future growth.
“We designed this hospital in the middle of the pandemic. The entire project team – designers, engineers, and Mercy Health stakeholders – contributed to the design in virtual meetings using tools and processes that we were all figuring out together in real time,” says GBBN Principal, Mickey LeRoy. “We are extremely proud of the combined effort to overcome those hurdles and we’re happy to celebrate this important construction milestone.”
The project team also includes HEAPY (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineer), Schaefer (structural engineer), and MSP (landscape and civil engineer).
The facility is expected to open in late 2023.
This design involves an adaptation of system of prototypes that GBBN developed for the larger Bon Secours Mercy Health system. You can learn about that here.
