With the Sister Caritas Cancer Center, Mercy Medical Center expanded oncology services and consolidated their programs into one comprehensive space. SGH designed the structure for the two-story horizontal expansion.

Scope | Solutions

The approximately 26,000 sq ft addition is adjacent to three existing hospital buildings. Highlights of our structural design include the following:

  • Steel-framed structure designed to accommodate a future one-story vertical addition

  • Base connections for a feature stair in the main entrance atrium

  • New foundations combined with existing to integrate new elevator pit adjacent to existing structure

  • Custom foundations to bridge over primary utility lines feeding the campus

  • Top-side roof modifications to existing roof to reduce snow drift effects with minimal interior work

  • Steel moment frames and cantilevers for large projected bays on upper level
