McCarthy Building Companies Inc. has completed of Phase 4 construction of the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital replacement project in Santa Barbara, Calif.

The $300 million project is part of a six-phased inpatient facility construction replacement program for Cottage Health System at the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital site, totaling approximately $700 million and spanning 750,000-sf.

With grand opening ceremonies in January 2012 and patient move-in on February 12, the 370,000-sf project included construction of a diagnostic and treatment (D&T) pavilion and two, three-level patient pavilions with a basement and a new main entrance.

McCarthy also built a helipad for emergency air transportation atop the D&T Pavilion. Construction of the patient pavilions ensures the hospital’s compliance with Senate Bill 1953, which requires seismic upgrades for all acute care facilities before the 2013 deadline.

Prior to beginning Phase 4 work, McCarthy built a new 28,476-square-foot Energy Center, two parking structures for employees and visitors with space for approximately 1,133 vehicles, and a culvert around the hospital to protect the surrounding neighborhood by reducing flood risk. BD+C
