Alabama Firms Celebrate Topping Out of Great Falls Clinic Project

February 4, 2015

Replacement Hospital Reaches Full Height

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Feb. 4, 2015) – Today, Capital Growth Medvest, project developer and real estate owner; Goodwyn, Mills and Cawood, Inc. (GMC), project architect; and Brasfield & Gorrie, general contractor, commemorated the topping out of the new Great Falls Clinic Medical Center with the placement of a pine tree at the top of the building. Construction has reached the pinnacle of the structure.

“With today’s topping out, we are one step closer to enhancing Great Falls Clinic’s services and capacity to care for the local community,” said Lynn Jones, senior project manager at Brasfield & Gorrie.

Brasfield & Gorrie broke ground on the Great Falls Clinic Medical Center in August 2014. Adjacent to the existing Great Falls Clinic Specialty Center, the 65,000 sq ft project will include a 19-bed hospital, operating rooms, procedure rooms and an emergency department.

The facility will be owned equally by Great Falls Clinic, a multi-specialty medical practice with primary, related secondary and urgent care service offerings, and Surgery Partners, a company that partners with hospitals and health systems to develop and operate short-stay surgical facilities.

Local partners Dick Anderson Construction and L’Heureux Page Werner are working with Brasfield & Gorrie and GMC to build the new hospital. Construction is scheduled to be complete in fall 2015.
