Cardinal Engineering To Assist With Hospital Expansion Project
Oklahoma City, Okla., – Cardinal Engineering has been selected to provide engineering services for the project that will lead to the construction of a new six-story Mercy Hospital. The project is expected to begin later this year and will break ground beside the current Oklahoma Heart Hospital South in Oklahoma City. The new hospital will be around 228,000 square-feet with an estimated cost of more than $150 million. It will include 72 patient beds, space for an intensive care unit, and a pharmacy.
The current emergency room will be expanded in 2018. Construction plans include a helipad, several hundred additional parking spaces, and a new parking garage and parking lot. Construction for the helipad and building should be completed by 2020.
The construction plans for this project have been designed to accommodate future expansion.
