Construction on Schedule

December 06, 2017

Construction progress

The three story addition to NorthBay Medical Center is right on schedule to open in the summer or 2019

The roof will be complete in mid-December and 80 percent of the windows are installed, explained Eric VanPelt, project manager. Work is underway on all three floors of the building. On the first and second floors, wall framing and seismic bracing are ongoing. The first floor will include a new café, diagnostic imaging and central supply department, while the second floor features 22 new patient rooms. On the third floor, which will house the new operating rooms and PACU, workers are roughing-in the overhead utilities.

A new generator and cooling tower are being installed in the utility plant next to the addition.

  • Do not walk through or drive through construction gates. It is unsafe for anyone but construction personnel to be within the jobsite boundaries.
  • Be aware of your surroundings, including trucks, equipment and added traffic coming and going. Caution your patients and visitors to be alert and aware.
  • Don't cross a barrier even if it is only yellow caution tape. It's barricaded because it's not safe.
  • If you encounter a construction vehicle outside of the barriers, make sure you make eye contact with the driver before entering the vehicle's path of travel.
