Construction in full swing at Kenmore Mercy
to keep the impact to our patients and neighbors at a minimum.
Earlier this month, health information management, the medical library and the physician’s lounge were relocated and that area of the first floor was demolished, making way
for the new emergency department’s entrance and waiting room.
Outside the building, trucks are coming and going throughout the day, as excavation and removal of dirt take place.
Construction of the foundation and basement are currently underway. In addition, digging has begun in the former physician’s parking lot, allowing for the rerouting of both the sanitary and storm sewer systems.
Along the hospital’s south roadway many improvements to site drainage and roadways are being implemented to help manage the future traffic flow on the Kenmore Mercy Hospital campus.
“Our goal is to ensure the integrity of our neighbor’s landscaping, keep noise to a minimum, and maintain the friendly relationships we’ve built in this community over the last 60 years,” said Robert J. Fritschi, facility planner for Catholic Health.
This fall, the structure will take shape as the steel framing is erected. The building shell is anticipated to be completed by end of the year. The goal is to complete the project by summer of 2013.
The current Emergency Department continues to operate at full capacity during this construction. The boardcertified emergency physicians provide emergency care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
