Methodist University Hospital Continues Modernization

From Daily News

Methodist University Hospital is seeking a $2.5 million building permit to continue work on its $280 million modernization project on its campus, 1265 Union Ave.

The application filed with the city-county Office of Construction Code Enforcement describes the scope of work simply as “alterations.” It lists Juan Self of Self-Tucker as the architect, Mike Sheridan of Allen & Hoshall as the engineer and Turner Construction as the contractor.

The permit is the latest in a series filed in the past several months. Methodist sought a $15.4 million permit in November for the foundation of a 440,000-square-foot tower on the Methodist University campus. Then in January, the hospital pulled an $80 million interior buildout permit application. That permit, also for the 1265 Union Ave. location, listed the trio of Turner Construction as contractor, Self as architect and Sheridan as the engineer as well.

The new tower is a major component of the $280 million campus expansion and modernization project, which is scheduled for completion in early 2019.

The campus plan calls for the West Cancer Center on Union Avenue to be combined with hospital-based inpatient and surgical services to create a comprehensive cancer center. Transplant services will be consolidated into a two-floor inpatient/outpatient Transplant Institute, and outpatient care will be consolidated into the new tower. Other components include the construction of a 700-space parking plaza and two gardens.
