S. M. Wilson & Co. has been selected by Blessing Hospital to serve as the construction manager of a $33 million Patient Care Center expansion in Quincy, Illinois.
The expansion will include building out the fourth-floor shell space with 26 patient rooms and two new patient floors with an additional 52 patient rooms. Once the fit-out is complete, Blessing Hospital’s Moorman Pavilion will turn into a six-floor patient tower with a total of 130 patient rooms.
S. M. Wilson built the original Moorman Pavilion Patient Tower at Blessing Hospital in 2015. The project was necessary to facilitate the remodeling of Blessing Hospital’s 1970 Patient Tower and transformation from dual occupancy rooms to primarily private rooms. The Moorman Pavilion currently has 70 patient rooms, including waiting rooms, conference rooms, nurses’ stations, offices, staff lounges and locker rooms, exam rooms, therapy rooms, a chapel and classrooms for the Blessing-Rieman College of Nursing.
Christner will design the project. Construction is expected to be completed by May 2020.
