Mercy Health – West Hospital
Mercy Health – West Hospital is a 550,000 square foot hospital built on 60 acres. Faith Technologies partnered with Denier Electric to ensure the client received the project-specific expertise and depth of resources needed for a new hospital electrical installation.
Mercy Health – West Hospital features several new services that have never been offered before on the West side including a heart center, cancer center, family birth center, women’s center, and a comprehensive orthopedics program. There are more than 250 patient beds in the two towers of this hospital, with five floors in each. There is also a parking garage with the capability of a 20 percent expansion, three 2M generators, a primary substation, and four unit substations.
Faith Technologies used CAD detailing for layout drawings and collaborated in the design validation process. Our Building Information Modeling (BIM) capabilities (virtual design and construction methodology) were also critical to the project delivery due to the size, nature, custom architectural features, prefab capabilities, and critical project schedule.
The project team worked together on the equipment installation and relocation to accomplish a seamless move from the two existing hospitals to the new facility. Safety was an integral part of the project as well. While there was no site-specific training for the project, the construction team followed the safety guidelines of the three key players: Turner Construction, Faith Technologies, and Denier Electric. The companies had task-specific daily toolbox talks, completed weekly job-site safety audits, and performed weekly job walks with all trades.
By focusing on providing a safe and productive work environment, the firms were able to construct a new hospital on the fast track and meet the health care needs for Ohio residents.
