Dignity Health Mercy Medical Center
McCarthy's healthcare construction team completed this eight-floor, 266,000-square-foot, 185-bed replacement hospital for the consolidation of two existing campuses. The Medical Center includes an intensive care unit, surgery center, operation recovery, labor and delivery, neonatal intensive care, newborn nursery, emergency room, ambulatory care, pharmacy, cafeteria, and a helipad. The project also included construction of a new central utility plant and 15.8 acres of site improvements.
Lean Design principles effectively reduced construction and operating costs, and sustainability was achieved in features such as strategic site planning, waste management, drought resistant landscaping, storm water retention and cost-efficient MEP systems including Low-E glass, centrifugal chillers and energy efficient electrical systems.
