The Winn Army Community Hospital at Fort Stewart moved another step closer to completing its $23.1 million expansion and renovation by officially breaking ground on a new 65,000-square-foot building. Being constructed by McCarthy, the project is targeted to achieve LEED Silver certification and also includes the renovation of approximately 1,000 square feet of the existing hospital, which opened in 1983.
“McCarthy is honored to do our part to serve the soldiers who serve our country both at home and abroad,” said Tim York, project director for McCarthy. “Right now, soldiers and their families must go to more than 20 buildings located throughout the base for medical care. This new facility will provide a more efficient, effective way for them to receive medical care at a single location.”
The contract and construction is being overseen by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah District.
Services offered at the new Winn Army Community Hospital will include physical and occupational therapies, orthopedics, podiatry, social services and behavioral health. Soldiers stationed at Fort Stewart include the Third Infantry Division, which is continually training for and deploying for combat.
“At the time this hospital opened, it was state of the art,” said Col. Ronald Place, commander of Winn Army Community Hospital. “As we’ve grown and technology has advanced, a new solution was necessary. This expansion and renovation will enable our soldiers and their families to continue to receive a quality healthcare experience for years to come.”
The project architect is Leo A Daly. Completion of the expansion and renovation is scheduled for September 2013.
