R.D. Lawrence Leads Passavant Area Hospital Capital Program

R.D. Lawrence Construction Co. Ltd. has led the Design-Build Team for Passavant Area Hospital since 2002. With the assistance of BLDD Architects and KJWW Engineering, R.D. Lawrence has taken the strategic plan to realization. Major projects completed since 2002 include: 

  • Chiller Plant Upgrade
  • Lab Renovations
  • Ambulatory Surgery Addition
  • Ambulatory Surgery Registration
  • Radiology Renovation
  • Surgery Remodel
  • Cardiopulmonary Remodel

All design and construction has been completed under the leadership and guidance of R.D. Lawrence Construction Co., Ltd.

Mr. Chester Wynn, CEO, Passavant Hospital contacted John Goetz, President of R.D. Lawrence in 2002 and asked their firm to take it to the next level. To that end over $15 million of construction has been completed with a little more than $16 million left to complete.

Recently the Illinois Department of Public Health approved a C.O.N. for a new Emergency Department (E.D.) Addition and remodeling of the existing E.D. construction to begin in the Spring of 2008. Completion of the multi-phase project is scheduled for 2012.

Radiology Department

Many of the renovation projects must be completed almost ona room by room basis. The Radiology Department was a challenge. Daily operation must continue, and it did. Over 18 months the 11 Phases were completed within original schedule and under the G.M.P. of $2.2 million. All savings reverted to the Owner.
