Columbus Regional Hospital has a long history that includes numerous awards for providing the highest quality patient care. Though the hospital dates back to 1917, the original characteristics have been preserved amid updates that keep the facility current. It's a challenge that required a construction team dedicated to the quality the hospital expects and that understands how to keep them up and running during complex renovations and additions. Columbus Regional Hospital turned to Pepper for its project through a design-build delivery. The hospital added 29,000 square feet of emergency department space, with vertical expansion capability, a 9,400-square-foot cancer center expansion and an 8,000-square-foot loading dock building with an underground tunnel to the existing hospital. The project also included renovations to the existing hospital space.
The project was awarded Best in Healthcare by Engineering News-Record’s Regional Best Projects 2016 Awards program. The annual awards program is dedicated to honoring the best construction projects across the country and is judged using five criteria, including safety, innovation and teamwork.
