McCarthy Building Companies Inc. has started construction on a five-story inpatient tower at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills.
Under the $113 million contract, McCarthy will also remodel the cardiology department and five operating rooms. The new 131,500-square-foot tower will comprise a women’s services department, 70 general medical-surgical beds, an intensive care unit, a chapel and dining facilities. The addition will also include 22,300 square feet of shell space to accommodate 35 more beds.
Designed by HMC Architects, the project is seeking LEED certification through the United States Green Building Council. Currently, only four hospitals in the country are LEED-certified.
Completion is estimated for early 2011.
