UPMC Memorial Hospital Underway!

After many years of planning, by outs and contractor changes, IBEW affiliated electrical contractor Edwin L. Heim Company was successful in securing this high profile project. Site work began in the fall and construction has started to pick up with the last piece of structural steel being set on May 10th. 

The new facility will feature 130 beds in a modern five-level design where all patients will be able to heal comfortably in private rooms.  The 220,000-square-foot facility will provide acute and emergency medical care, cardiology and vascular services, chronic disease management, surgical services, a Level II Specialty Care Nursery, and treatment for patients in need of long-term acute care.  Other features of the project include:

  • -3 heart catheterization labs
  • -4 leading-edge operating rooms, including 1 cardiac operating room
  • -Emergency Department with 28 treatment rooms
  • -Critical Care Unit with 14 beds
  • -Multiple nursing stations in each unit throughout the facility

With substantial completion set for Summer of 2019, IBEW 229 electricians have alot of work to do, but tight deadlines are nothing new for the IBEW/NECA team and we look forward to having UPMC as our customer. 

Also under construction is the UPMC Medical Office and Anex Center that is attached to the main Hospital. The electrical construction on this project is being handeled by affiliated electrical contractor G.R. Sponaugle Inc. 

This facility is set to be open in summer 2019 as well.
