We are proudly working with the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) League City on the strategic expansion of their medical campus. This is a destination where UTMB offers leading-edge health care services and experiences to patients, families and staff.
As part of the expansion project, our team is helping UTMB add five stories to its South Tower, to boost patient bed count to nearly 100, and also introduce more operating and endoscopy rooms, a larger Post Care Anesthesia Unit (PACU), and an expanded emergency department across the campus. The South Tower project is tracking toward welcoming its first patient in May 2020.
One of the most exciting aspects of this project is working with UTMB’s team, a group that is at the forefront of the industry and is pushing to deliver the best possible solution to serve its community. Recently, Leonard Lacomb, a principal facilities manager for UTMB design and construction and one of our main client contacts for the project, was profiled in UTMB’s Day in the Life series. Our entire team was invited by Leonard and his team to participate in the photo shoot and so I’m sharing images of our team collaborating and walking the project site throughout this post.
“The new tower includes a dining area, an expanded pharmacy and lab, along with staff facilities and more,” LaComb explained in the piece. “The final touch is a grand concourse that will begin at the new skybridge and run more than 300 feet to the new tower and elevator lobby. The concourse has been designed to spotlight the League City area and its surrounding communities, and the great history of UTMB, highlighting our goals, values and attention to caring for our patients.”
It is truly exciting to work with Leonard and his team on this project, and we’re excited to see the South Tower become a reality. It will ensure UTMB League City continues to deliver world-class care to its community for generations.
