McCarthy Finalizes Vertical Expansion at Georgia Hospital

By HCO Staff

CARTERSVILLE, Ga.—McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. has wrapped the 43,122-square-foot North Tower vertical expansion at Piedmont Cartersville in Bartow County northwest of Atlanta. The $24 million project broke ground in August 2022.

McCarthy added two floors to the existing three-story tower, which provide additional support space and general storage for the hospital staff on the new fourth floor. The fifth floor now houses 20 beds for short stay patients at the hospital. The project also included the renovation and 11,000-square-foot expansion of the existing Sterile Processing Department.

Additional project partners include TMPartners as the architect, I. C. Thomasson Associates as the mechanical engineer, Stanley D. Lindsey and Associates, Ltd. as the structural engineer and Meadows & Ohly as the program manager.

Piedmont Cartersville is among 23 hospitals affiliated with the Piedmont Healthcare system, headquartered in Atlanta. McCarthy was awarded the Piedmont Cartersville project in June 2022. Over the last five years, McCarthy has successfully executed multiple projects for the healthcare system’s Atlanta, Athens Regional, Cartersville, Columbus, Newton and Rockdale campuses. McCarthy was awarded the Piedmont Cartersville project in June 2022.

“The successful completion of this project reflects yet another rewarding partnership with Piedmont Healthcare and we take pride in our role contributing to the hospital system’s expansion efforts, aimed at improving patient care for Bartow County residents,” said Mark Cleverly, project director at McCarthy Building Companies. “There was a substantial effort from McCarthy to maintain hospital operations during construction, and we were successful in avoiding any significant impacts to patient-provider flow while delivering the project on time and within budget.”

McCarthy is one of the South’s leading healthcare builders, completing more than 60 healthcare projects in the southern region in the past five years.
