Birmingham-based construction company Robins & Morton recently marked the structural completion of a $256 million, six-story addition to a Florida hospital, AdventHealth Tampa.
The traditional topping out ceremony is a major benchmark, looking forward to final completion of the patient tower, scheduled for the fall of 2021.
Once complete, the Taneja Center for Innovative Surgery addition will total 314,000 square feet, tying into the main hospital. It will feature 100 private rooms; a 24-bed critical care unit; a 24-room surgical suite; and a new main entrance to the hospital with a two-story atrium, a lobby, a patient registration area and other support spaces.
“We are so fortunate to have an amazing team of expertly-skilled and top-trained surgeons who are the most highly sought after in the medically-complex areas such as neurology, cardiology and digestive specialties,” said Denyse Bales-Chubb, president and CEO of AdventHealth Tampa. “We are excited to build on that level of expertise by adding more complex surgical specialties in a new tower that can be a place of greater hope and healing for our patients.”
Robins & Morton, founded in 1946, is privately held, based in Birmingham and has offices in Charlotte, Dallas, Huntsville, Miami, Nashville and Orlando.
