Hussung Mechanical provided Design-Assist and constructed this replacement hospital. The Design-Assist phase started in 2009 and lasted approximately 18 months. Throughout this time, Hussung Mechanical provided several phase budgets and numerous VE items for team consideration. Construction was completed on-time in February, 2013.
Delivered using an Integrated Project Delivery approach, the Owensboro Medical Center Replacement Hospital is a 781,000 square foot, 350-bed hospital and integrated health campus located on a 160-acre site. The hospital includes a nine-story patient tower with supporting buildings and a five-story medical office building. The structures are surrounded with 15 acres of ponds, 50 acres of grasslands, 27 acres for vehicle usage, and 5.5 acres of building footprint. The remaining acreage consists of landscaping, turf, trails and outdoor areas.
The facility has been designated by Audubon International as the first Certified Signature Sanctuary in the state of Kentucky and is the first hospital in the world to achieve this certification. Engineering News-Record recognized the hospital as one of the Best Projects of 2013. It has also received multiple awards, including the Associated Builders and Contractors of Middle Tennessee’s Award of Excellence and the Associated General Contractors of Middle Tennessee’s Award of Merit.
