CLEVELAND, Ohio — Construction consulting firm Buric has landed a contract from the St. John Medical Center in Ohio’s Eastern Lorain County to help manage a $51-million capital improvement project, which includes both renovations and new construction.
The construction is part of St. John Medical Center’s five-year modernization plan that includes building a two-story outpatient lobby, renovating the main lobby and upgrading first-floor common areas.
The center also plans to build a new clinical decision unit and pediatric unit adjacent to the emergency department, and to renovate surgical, laboratory and radiology areas.
Working with the project manager and partners, the Chagrin Falls, Ohio-based consulting firm will develop and maintain the Critical Path Method (CPM) master schedule, phased baseline schedule and look-ahead schedules for implementing work phasing, project sequencing and work flow on 22 separate renovations and expansion projects.
The medical center is a partnership of University Hospitals and the Sisters of Charity Health System.
The hospital’s 600 physicians and 1,200 employees serve the growing eastern Lorain County communities of North Ridgeville, Avon and Avon Lake.
The facility also serves as a teaching site for the Ohio College of Osteopathic Medicine, and specializes in emergency services, cardiovascular, spine and orthopedic services, and critical care.
