“We are delighted to have McCarthy working as our partner in building the hospital of the future for Merced.”
—Robert McLaughlin, spokesperson, Mercy Medical Center Merced
McCarthy is currently constructing the first phase of the Mercy Medical Center Merced.
The new 266,000-square-foot hospital will consolidate two existing Catholic Healthcare West campuses, Dominican and Community. Designed to accommodate current capacity and future growth, the project is located next to the Mercy Cancer Center and includes a new 185-bed, seven-story tower. As part of the project, McCarthy is also constructing a new central utility plant and making nearly 16 acres of site improvements, including rerouting a canal. The medical center is scheduled to open in 2010.
McCarthy is helping Mercy Merced maximize the value of the hospital’s group purchasing relationship with their national purchasing partner Premier, Inc. McCarthy is the only builder in the United States with a national contract with Premier to provide construction management services to member hospitals like Mercy Merced. McCarthy’s unique purchasing expertise has delivered additional value to healthcare clients across the country. Architect: RBB Architects, Inc., Los Angeles.
