Patient Tower tops out at Wake Forest Baptist Davie Medical Center
Crowds gathered to celebrate the completion of the steel phase for the new bed tower at Wake Forest Baptist Health – Davie Medical Center’s Bermuda Run campus. The topping out ceremony celebrated the time spent by subcontractors and craftworkers to safely complete construction up to this point. To date, workers have placed 504 tons of steel and poured 1,300 cubic yards of concrete.
The new 3-story building marks the second phase of development for the Medical Center. Rodgers completed the first phase in 2013, which consisted of a medical office building and hospital, including an emergency department and specialty clinics that include cardiac rehabilitation, physical therapy and ophthalmology. The new bed tower will provide 50 beds with a focus on geriatric and joint replacement programs. The expansion will also include a full-service kitchen and cafeteria with an outdoor courtyard area, an inpatient pharmacy, chapel and physician offices.
A special thanks to Summit Healthcare Group and HKS Architects for their team effort and ongoing collaboration on this project.
