McCarthy tapped for $37 million healthcare project for Capital Region Medical Center in mid-Missouri

Capital Region Medical Center (CRMC), an affiliate of the University of Missouri Healthcare System, has selected a joint venture team of McCarthy and Sircal Contracting, Inc. for a $37 million expansion project. The 120,000-square-foot project, which recently broke ground in Jefferson City, Mo., will include a new medical office building, new main entry and hospital connector, renovation to the existing outpatient entry and a new covered parking structure. 

“Capital Region Medical Center and Capital Region Physicians seek to enhance patient care, with a focus on outpatient services and the patient experience,” said Ed Farnsworth, president, CRMC. “Advancing the way in which care is delivered requires state-of-the-art facilities designed to provide patients with a healing environment. We believe this expansion will be a perfect complement to CRMC’s expansive clinic system.”

An important factor in Capital Region’s choice of the Sircal/McCarthy team was the importance of local involvement and their commitment to use as many local subcontractors as possible on this project, said McCarthy Business Development Director Dan Cates. “Although McCarthy is a nationally recognized healthcare builder, the company often partners with local contractors and is committed to hiring local when possible. An example is our recent Good Samaritan Regional Health Center project in Mount Vernon, Ill. Eighty-five percent of subcontracted work on that project was from within a 100-mile radius of Mount Vernon,” said Cates. McCarthy has also successfully partnered with Sircal on previous projects in central Missouri. Completion of the project is expected in late spring 2015. 

Designed by Simon Oswald Associates (SOA), the innovative concept is based on a philosophy of patient-centered care. In addition to physician offices, the facility will include therapies, pharmacy, radiology and a breast center.

“The medical center expansion will serve the local community with better access to health care, job growth, economic development and neighborhood improvement,” said Jack Pletz, chair, board of Directors. “It would not be possible without the collective efforts of many people — our local government, our generous donors, members of the CRMC family and our surrounding communities.”
