Baptist Health Care and Brasfield & Gorrie held a meet-and-greet information session for specialty trade contractors and vendors last week.
Along with the hospital construction project, the session included information about the upcoming maintenance, repair and overhaul hangar project at Pensacola International Airport.
Brasfield & Gorrie is general contractor for the new health care campus to be located at Brent Lane and I-110 in Pensacola.
Local and minority contractors and vendors were invited to learn more about the construction projects and engage in one-on-one conversations with representatives from Baptist and the project team. The goal was to help match the needs of the projects with the resources available from local companies.
“From the outset of project planning, our intention has been to use, when possible, the skills and talents of local and minority companies in the construction of this new hospital because we know they are as invested in this community as we are,” said John Porter, vice president, corporate facilities and support services, Baptist Health Care.
“We look forward to the opportunity to meet those who are interested in being a part of this project that will transform the delivery of health care in Northwest Florida. We are very pleased that we can broaden this gathering to include opportunities for the airport project.”
