The Inspira Health Network has contracted with Skanska USA to build its new five-story hospital in Mullica Hill, New Jersey, (15 miles from Philadelphia), which will be built under the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach. The client, designer, and the builder alignment streamlines the execution of the project. It will be Skanska USA’s largest IPD application to date in North America.
With its partners Array Architects and Leach Wallace Associates, Skanska USA will construct a five-story hospital building with 204 beds. The main tower consists of operating rooms, an emergency department, imaging suites, as well as administrative, dining and support services. The project also includes constructing a central utility plant, which will provide electrical power, heating/hot water and chilled water.
“Skanska’s extensive regional/national healthcare experience and innovative construction and delivery models enable clients like Inspira to focus on providing a superior service to the community,” said Skanska USA Executive Vice President and General Manager Ed Szwarc. “At Skanska, we build for a better society – and we are committed to enhancing and expanding the Philadelphia region’s capacity for quality healthcare through these world-class facilities.”
“A medical center located in the heart of Gloucester County will be a great asset to the entire region,” said John DiAngelo, President and CEO of Inspira Health Network. “This modern facility will allow our physicians and staff to offer our neighbors easy access to an even higher level of quality health care.”
Construction will begin in the first quarter of 2017 and is scheduled to be complete by December 2019.
Skanska has extensive healthcare experience in the Delaware Valley including the Capital Health Replacement Hospital, Christiana Care’s Women and Children’s Health Building, Wilmington Hospital Expansion, and the Nemours/A.I. duPont Hospital for Children.
