Hospital in Texas plans its renovation project for an expansion among board members to support the needs of the areas growing population. Board members of Texas County Memorial Hospital met last week to finalize the details of its 58,000 square feet renovation project and the expansion of its existing facilities.
The construction of the renovation project will be spearheaded by JE Dunn Construction Company— a commercial general service provider that specializes in building construction management, sustainable construction and LEED.
For the next few years, according to a report, JE Dunn will be looking for subcontractors, and plan for a public and local meeting for local subcontractors in the area to receive bids and estimates for the hospital’s renovation project.
The company was initially selected for the TCMH renovation project in September 2008 by the standard bidding process made by the hospital. TCMH’s expansion project was put on- hold to secure stable funding when the bond market collapsed.
JE Dunn’s regional branch— Ozark Region Office in Little Rock, Arkansas, will be doing the hospital’s renovation and expansion project.
TCMH was awarded about $18 million loan for its renovation project by the Rural Development in 2010. Hospital officials will be working closely with USDA to finalize the loan documents for its low- interest loan.
The hospital is also subject for an in- depth audit for getting the USDA loan grant, but officials already submitted required documents before the audit.
Information about bidding procedures will be publicized soon.
Groundbreaking for the hospital’s renovation project will be on spring 2011.
