Feb. 20, 2013 - PRLog -- This week, Yuma Regional Medical Center (YRMC) will complete development of 66,000 square feet of space that will add more patient beds to serve the growing Yuma community and deliver upon the desire of the community to have more private patient rooms available. The expansion will increase YRMC’s current 369-bed capacity to 406 beds. It will also provide additional core/support space, improved patient and staff visibility and improved patient safety details.

“Our Board of Directors made a wise strategic decision in early 2002 when they approved and invested in a facility that included three floors of shelled space that could be developed when community growth and needs dictated it,” said Pat Walz, YRMC president and CEO. “We completed the fourth floor expansion in 2011 and continued demand for our services dictates that we add more inpatient beds now. This development is one of the next steps in the hospital’s successful 54-year history and part of our strategic plan.”

Yuma Regional Medical Center is committed to providing its patients with the highest quality medical care. It is part of YRMC’s strategic plan to invest in incremental hospital facility development where required to support future volume growth, meet patient care needs and improve the patient experience. To do this, it is essential that YRMC continues to evaluate current facilities and expand them as necessary. When additional infrastructure is needed, it is designed to meet the needs of the community with a strategic vision of 30 to 50 years in the future.

A project of this size is typically a yearlong process. However, this build-out of the two additional patient floors was completed by McCarthy Building Companies on an accelerated schedule of six months.

“Design development and permitting was run concurrently to construction in order to fast-track the project,” said Kurt Nyberg, project director for McCarthy. “Our teams used our non-disruption construction strategies, such as using external scaffolding ladders to access the new floors, to ensure patient care was not interrupted during the project.”

YRMC selected McCarthy Building Companies as the general contractor for the project. McCarthy has demonstrated its ability as a true builder to deliver on the many critical factors of this project, including developing and meeting complex construction schedules; coordination of multiple crews working concurrently; use of high-tech resources that enhance construction quality and eliminate costly on-site conflicts; good relationships with local subcontractors; and extensive experience with the construction techniques necessary while health care facilities are in operation to best ensure non-disruption of patients. McCarthy also completed the fourth floor build out last year.

The architect on the project is Archsol LLC. Local subcontractors included E&K (paint, drywall and ceilings), Walters and Wolf (windows and doors), Kris Kraft (millwork), Miko Mechanical (mechanical work) and Delta Diversified (electrical work).
