McCarthy Breaks Ground for Extensive Expansion and Renovation for Saint Luke’s East Ambulatory Surgery Center
Highlight is the 62,000-square-foot vertical addition above existing facility
Comunicado de Prensa
McCarthy in Kansas City recently broke ground on the 113,913-square-foot expansion and renovation of Saint Luke’s East Ambulatory Surgery Center in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. The ambulatory surgery center was founded in 2006 to meet the growing needs of Eastern Jackson County. Located at 120 NE Saint Luke’s Blvd., it is part of Saint Luke’s Health System.
The $52 million project will create the additional space needed to enable off-site medical-related services to move back onto the main East campus. Work includes both the renovation of the existing two-story, 52,000-square-foot ambulatory surgery center and clinical space, as well as building a new 62,000-square-foot third floor addition above the existing facility.
“This is not just an expansion of space.It’s an expansion of the excellent services we provide our patients,” said Bobby Olm Chipman, CEO of East and South Region of Saint Luke’s Health System. “This is our next step in that growth and our ongoing work to meet the community’s needs. This groundbreaking reflects our singular mission — we are the best place to get care and the best place to give care. And we are excited to build on the great care we provide to patients in this community in this comfortable and inviting space.”
Located in a separate building, the ambulatory surgery center and clinical space is connected to the three-story hospital. Both facilities will continue serving patients and visitors throughout construction.
“While the surgery center and clinical space originally had been designed to accommodate a vertical expansion, it is always challenging to build above an existing structure, especially when that expansion is built above a surgery center that continues to operate without disrupting patient care,” said Seth Kelso, market leader for McCarthy Building Companies in Kansas City.
Scheduled to complete at the end of 2024, the project is utilizing a collaborative project delivery approach known as Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR). The CMAR method is used by state, local and private entities to ensure firm pricing and alignment of scope and budget throughout the project, as well as to allow for earlier bid packages for procurement to help mitigate ongoing supply chain and cost escalation risks. Ultimately, CMAR better positions the team to deliver a project to the owner on- schedule and in-budget.
