Turner’s Anderson County Hospital project as a Project of the Year

June 07, 2016

We are delighted to announce that the Kansas City Chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America recently recognized Turner’s Anderson County Hospital project as a Project of the Year in the $10-$25 million category.

Completed in January of 2015, the hospital serves as a replacement for the former Anderson County Hospital, originally built in 1949. The updated facility, designed by Hoefer Wysocki Architecture, adds 10 inpatient beds, two operating rooms, one CT room, two radiology rooms, one room for nuclear medicine, five ER rooms, physical therapy space, 15 specialty clinic rooms, and 30 long-term care rooms, for a total of 55,000 square feet.

One of the primary challenges facing the team, explained Nick Durand, engineer, was the fact that the design called for incorporating select original structures – such as the ambulance garage – into in the new structure, while keeping them fully operational.

On a more personal note, Nick added, “Another thing that made this project stand out was the fact that I was born in the original Anderson County Hospital. This project was a tremendous opportunity to work for both the community and a hospital that has been home to my family.”

Turner was selected from a pool of competing contractors by a panel of six judges. The award was presented at the AGC Kansas City’s biennial Building Excellence Awards Banquet at the Museum at Prairiefire in Overland Park.
