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.
