Robins & Morton and Atrium Health’s Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast gathered on June 7 to officially top out the hospital’s latest modernization project.
Attendees celebrated with a special ceremony recognizing the work of the construction team members in reaching the official completion of the steel structure. The project’s scope includes a new 60-bed, 154,000-square-foot patient tower, in addition to infrastructure upgrades and a CVOR renovation in the surgery department.
In addition to working toward their spring 2019 completion date, the project team has received recognition for doing it safely. Earlier in the project, Robins & Morton received Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) status by the North Carolina Department of Labor. This was the first recognition ever received in the Western District of North Carolina and was awarded to the project team for their leadership in occupational safety and health management in protecting their subcontractors from death, injury and illness.
