Brasfield & Gorrie recently celebrated the groundbreaking for the $250 million M.T. Mustian Center at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare. With nearly 500 attendees, the event demonstrated the community’s enthusiasm for the new facility, its modern design and equipment and its extended service offerings, the contractor reported in a news release.
With demolition and site work already under way, the project consists of a five-story, 340,000 sq. ft. surgical tower on Tallahassee Memorial’s existing campus. The scope includes the build-out of 28 operating rooms, 12 shelled operating rooms, four interventional suites for neurosurgical and vascular procedures, 60 intensive care unit (ICU) rooms and 12 shelled ICU rooms. The new facility will replace all existing operating rooms and will house related support spaces, including post anesthesia care unit (PACU), respiratory therapy, CT imaging, perioperative services, sterile processing services, blood banking and pharmacy.
The construction team will complete the new tower, tying it into the existing hospital, assisting the owner with equipment procurement and installation and commissioning the building before its opening.
“Tallahassee Memorial, its doctors, staff, and administrators and the design team have worked together to develop a clear vision for M.T. Mustian Center and have given our team the privilege of helping them achieve it for the Tallahassee community,” said Brasfield & Gorrie senior project manager Brian Smith. “Brasfield & Gorrie is committed to delivering a state-of-the-art critical services facility that will enhance the hospital’s ability to provide exceptional care to Tallahassee residents and the entire Panhandle.”
Having completed nearly 1,500 projects on hospital campuses across the country, Brasfield & Gorrie will work closely with Tallahassee Memorial to ensure that the hospital remains fully operational and easily accessible throughout the construction process.
Designed by Gresham Smith & Partners, the project will modernize the hospital’s facilities and expand its service offerings, providing the Tallahassee community with the highest level of care, the contractor says.
