Turner Construction Company’s Topping Out Ceremony Brings New Sibley One Step Closer

August 19, 2014

Turner Construction Company celebrated the topping out of The New Sibley with a short ceremony detailing the vision and trajectory for the facility last Friday. Sibley Memorial Hospital, a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, is continuing the implementation of its long range master plan with The New Sibley. The New Sibley will include a 40,000-square-foot radiation oncology cancer center and a 200-bed replacement patient pavilion and emergency department, both of which are seeking LEED Silver Certification.

The New Sibley is designed to accommodate projected increased demand for emergency services, imaging and diagnostic services, integrated outpatient services, and physicians’ office space while responding to consumer demands for private patient rooms and modernized facilities. A rerouting of traffic to an added “front door” creates a more formal entry sequence for the medical center, decreasing the traffic burden on the residential side of the campus.

Jerry Price, senior vice president of Real Estate & Construction at Sibley Memorial Hospital explained, “The New Sibley is the third phase of our master plan development. The first was the medical building and parking garage. The second was the radiation oncology facility and the third is the New Sibley bed tower. He elaborated that the new private patient rooms will be "family friendly" and the largest in the market place.”

The patient pavilion will feature all private medical and surgical patient rooms supported by a decentralized nursing layout. A new obstetrics department will allow capacity for more than 45,000 annual births, supported by a new special care nursery, labor and delivery rooms, and C-section rooms. A new emergency department will be up-sized to handle  45,000 annual visits, with expansion capability for 50,000 visits.

We are thrilled to play an integral part in helping Sibley Memorial Hospital meet the evolving needs of its patients with the construction of The New Sibley, stated Ken Jones, Turner vice president and general manager. The New Sibley is projected to be open to the public in Winter 2016.
