The three-story, 77,000-square-foot wing will be watertight by mid-October.

The three-story, 77,000-square-foot wing will be watertight by mid-October, prior to the rainy season. The building’s steel structure and metal decks are in place and mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems are being roughed in, according to Joelyn Gropp, assistant vice president of Real Estate & Facilities Development for NorthBay Healthcare.

To accommodate growth and minimize cost and disruption later, space on the third floor that was set aside for future expansion will now be developed with the current phase of construction. The extra space will be built as general surgery operating rooms; one with robotic capacity, and another with the ability to be converted to an endoscopy room.

The extra construction will add approximately five months to the project, Joelyn explained. The hospital is now slated to open in the third quarter of 2019.
