KLMK Group Inc. has been awarded the Project Management contract for the Emergency Department and Cardiology Expansion Project at Slidell Memorial Hospital in Slidell, La.
Slidell Memorial, an 182-bed acute care community hospital, is expanding their current facility. The renovation will include a 56,000-sf Emergency Room/Cardiology Expansion.
The new facility will allow for shorter wait times, faster assessments, quicker discharges and more inpatient private beds. In addition, it will allow Slidell to prepare for future community growth while adding new technologies, equipment and physicians.
“After issuing a Request for Proposal (RFP) and an extensive national search, KLMK Group provided the most comprehensive strategy and healthcare experience to assist in managing the construction of our expansion. We are confident that the expertise that KLMK brings to the project will ensure that Slidell Memorial achieves our goal of improving the quality of life in our community,” says Barry Winters, Director Materials Management at Slidell Memorial Hospital.
KLMK has been retained to provide program management services, from the design and preconstruction phase through transition, related to the renovation of the existing facility. “We value our relationship with Slidell Memorial and are excited about the opportunity to assist their team in expanding the services they deliver to the surrounding community,” stated Bill McMahon, KLMK President and COO.
Construction on the new facility is scheduled to begin in March 2012 and be completed by June 2013. BD+C
