Haskell Tops Healthcare Facility Design-Build List

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (May 3, 2010) – The Haskell Company was recently ranked the No. 1 Healthcare Facility Design-Builder in the U.S. by Modern Healthcare in its 2010 Construction and Design Survey. Modern Healthcare, the industry’s leading source of healthcare business news, based the rankings on dollar volume, square feet of completed projects and full-time employees. In 2009, Haskell reported more than $332 million in total dollar volume, more than 1.5 million square feet of completed construction projects and 711 full-time employees.

“Modern Healthcare is the most respected and reputable publication in the healthcare industry and it is a true achievement for Haskell to be recognized by the publication as the country’s top design/builder of healthcare facilities,” said Paul Tyler, president of Haskell’s Commercial Group, which specializes in the design and build of healthcare facilities across the nation. “The dollar volume of our projects grew more than 86 percent from 2008 to 2009, which is a testament to our dedication of securing and building quality healthcare facilities throughout the U.S.”

The design/build firm’s largest healthcare projects in 2009 included the new St. John Broken Arrow Hospital and Medical Office in Broken Arrow, Okla., and the Baptist Medical Center South Tower D addition in Jacksonville, Fla.

St. John Broken Arrow Hospital and Medical Office is a 92-bed, six-story, 189,000- square-foot hospital designed for expansion and a 108,000-square-foot medical office building with a pedestrian connector to the hospital. The total project cost is approximately $100 million and construction will be complete in summer 2010.

The Baptist Medical Center South Tower D addition contains approximately 222,000 square feet of new construction and renovation. The addition features a new eight-story patient tower with a ninth floor mechanical penthouse that includes a 14-bed newborn intensive care unit, a 24-bed nursery, an additional 10 labor / delivery / recovery / postpartum suites, 48 acute care beds, four intensive care beds, a new inpatient pharmacy, cardiology diagnostic area, and an expansion of the existing central energy plant. It also includes the construction of a new 378,000-square-foot, 1,050-space parking structure. The project cost was approximately $85 million and was completed in the summer of 2009.
