Birmingham-based construction firm Robins & Morton broke ground on Brookwood Baptist Medical Center’s new operating room (OR) project on Nov. 10 in Homewood, Alabama.
The ceremony took place at the hospital adjacent to the project site. Attendees included Brookwood Baptist Health employees, Robins & Morton employees, community members and Alabama Governor, Kay Ivey.
Once complete in early 2023, the project will encompass 28,840 square feet across 2 floors. There will be 13 new operating rooms as well as administrative spaces. Additionally, the project will include a 3,500-square-foot post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) renovation and a new pedestrian bridge that will complete in summer 2023.
Evan Terry & Associates will serve as the architect.
“It’s been a unique opportunity to support improvements at Brookwood Baptist as they are quite literally our neighbors,” Robins & Morton Project Director Ashley Dyer said, referencing the half-mile proximity between the campus and the Robins & Morton office. “We’re grateful for the trust they’ve placed in us, year after year, to help them deliver world-class care.”
Since 2000, Robins & Morton has completed more than 60 projects for Brookwood Baptist, ranging in size with the largest being the women’s center expansion in 2010.
