Rogers Memorial Hospital will soon celebrate the completion of its newest facilities, an experiential building featuring a gymnasium, fitness center, relaxation room, art therapy studio, and recreation room, as well as a replacement for our eating disorders, child and adolescent and acute inpatient psychiatric facilities.
The construction of these two phases of our three-phase project moved along throughout 2011. Our experiential center is already being used and we’re excited for our upcoming ribbon ceremony on the inpatient centers.
The westernmost walls of the experiential center were some of the first walls to go up. This snowy shot is from February 2011.
By April 2011, the experiential center’s walls had been erected, and a pair of cranes arrived as the grounds were prepared for construction to begin on the inpatient facilities.
The walls of the experiential center (on the right) were being prepped for brickwork to begin in May 2011 while construction of the first walls of the inpatient facility (on left) went up alongside our new shipping and receiving dock (center).
The first and second stories of the inpatient center were well under construction in June 2011.
By the end of July 2011, the third floor and the building’s roof had been added to the site.
And by August 2011, brickwork was beginning to go up on the exterior walls.
In October 2011, the brickwork and molding was nearing completion.
December 2011 marked the near completion of the building’s exterior as the bulk of the construction now moves inside the building.
