Mercy Medical Center in Merced completed

Text size: A A

McCarthy Building Cos Inc. completed construction on the new $166-million Mercy Medical Center replacement hospital in Merced. A Catholic Healthcare West (CHW) affiliate, the Mercy Medical Center consolidates two existing campuses into one facility that includes an eight-level, 185-bed, 266,000-sq-ft general acute tower, as well as a 19,000-sq-ft central plant.

In addition to CHW, the primary team members, consisting of McCarthy, RBB Architects, Inc. and the owner’s construction manager Harris & Associates, worked with the owner to implement a “design-assist” delivery process to help create a soothing hospital environment engineered for today’s innovative technology standards.

The project was completed within schedule and under budget, and included minimal OSHPD deferred approvals and change orders, as well as reduced MEP coordination duration.

Environmental elements include high efficiency chillers and boilers; premium efficiency motors for the cooling tower, hot water pumps, medical air and vacuum systems; and energy efficient fluorescent lighting with room occupancy sensors. McCarthy recycled 100% of concrete waste, as well as more than 85% of all other construction materials.
