McCarthy was selected to provide HVAC and ventilation system upgrades at the Douglas County Health Center, Douglas County Correctional Center and Douglas County Criminal Justice Center. Improvements to the health center included installing several new air handling units, pumps and exhaust fans, a replacement steam boiler and chilling towers, as well as upgraded lighting, new isolation rooms and automatic faucets in patient rooms and nursing stations.
