Ground Broken on $146 Million Hospital in New York’s Finger Lake Region

CORNING, N.Y. — The groundbreaking was held April 18 for the new $146 million Guthrie Corning Hospital, with construction on the 232,000-square-foot facility scheduled to begin in late June.

The hospital features 65 private rooms and is designed to be energy efficient and promote green operations. The new hospital will replace the outdated Denison Parkway facility, built in the early 1900s.

“This project truly represents a new era in patient care for the residents of the region,” said Shirley Magana, president of the Hospital.

When open in summer of 2014, patients will benefit from an integrated campus designed for efficient delivery of quality care and increased outpatient services, according to officials.

The Guthrie Cancer Center Corning location will be on the first floor of the new hospital with a separate entrance for patients. The campus will also include an efficient emergency department with 18 treatment areas and an on-site helipad to quickly facilitate trauma patients or transfers.

Gilbane-Welliver is responsible for pre-construction and construction management services for the new hospital.

Hammes Co. will serve as the owner representative for the project with Gould Turner Group serving as the designer. Smith Seckman Reid Inc. (SSR), with Hunt Architecture, engineering and land surveyors, as the civil engineer, are responsible for the MEP engineering.
