Reeves County Hospital District and Robins & Morton ceremoniously lifted the final steel beam into place to celebrate the topping out of the new Reeves County Hospital in Pecos, Texas, on Sept. 23.
To uphold social distancing measures, Reeves County Hospital District invited community members to participate in the event virtually via Facebook Live.
The $115 million project represents the district’s investment in a total replacement of the community hospital, which will include 25 all-private inpatient beds, a level four emergency department with 11 exam rooms and three trauma rooms, a delivery suite, a nursery, women’s imaging department, a physical therapy gym, a 15-bay dialysis unit, surgical suite, home health services, an inpatient/outpatient lab, a cardiovascular rehabilitation program, and support service spaces. The current design, led by project architect Perkins and Will of Dallas, is 140,000 square feet and has the goal of LEED Certified under LEED for Healthcare’s v4 rating system.
“This was a unique and creative way for the City of Pecos to come together around such an important milestone,” Robins & Morton Vice President Bob Wall said. “We’re thrilled to reach this point in the project, bringing us one step closer to delivering a state-of-the-art facility for this community.”
Currently, the project is slated for completion in summer 2021.
