Project Details

As part of a major strategic $26.7M initiative for Ascension, BEAR relocated key departments and services from the Saint Elizabeth facility and consolidated them within the Saint Mary (SM). Part of this major undertaking was the addition of a new 2,600-SF MRI suite. Completed under an accelerated schedule from breaking ground to having the building ready for the MRI delivery in 8 weeks, this addition sat in a snug construction site with very limited access due to adjacent patient parking and an underground storm trap. Despite these obstacles for drilling caissons and limited crane access, we successfully set the steel and installed the MRI magnet in one of our fastest timelines for ground-up construction.
