Construction Continues at Mercy Health – West Hospital
Construction is still successfully underway at Mercy Health – West Hospital, scheduled to open in 2013.
This new 550,000 square foot hospital, located on 60 acres of land in Green Township in Cincinnati, OH, is state-of-the-art, and will feature several new services that have never been offered on the West Side before. These services include an open heart center, cancer center, family birth center, women’s health center, and a comprehensive orthopaedics program. There will be 250 patient beds in two towers of this hospital, with five floors in each, and a parking garage with the capability of a 20 percent expansion.
Faith Technologies has partnered with Denier Electric Co. to ensure this client receives the project-specific expertise and depth of resources needed for a new hospital electrical installation. There are three 2M generators, a primary substation, and four unit substations, and Faith Technologies is using CAD detailing for layout drawings utilizing collaboration in the design validation process.
Our Building Information Modeling (BIM) capabilities, virtual design, and construction methodology are also all critical to the project delivery due to its size, difficult architectural features, prefabrication capabilities, and critical project schedule. At peak, our manpower will be approximately 90 electricians on the power and lighting.
Once complete, Mercy Health – West Hospital will enhance the healthcare services available throughout Greater Cincinnati. Faith Technologies is honored to be part of Mercy Health’s growing network of care, and privileged to assist in providing the latest advancements in design for quality medical care.
