Ceremony Marks Completion of New Pavilion
St. Anthony Hospital and Turner Construction were joined by physicians, employees and community leaders Monday, June 30 for a topping out ceremony for the new Pavilion construction project on the St. Anthony campus. In construction, a topping out ceremony - one of the industry's oldest customs - is celebrated when the last beam is placed at the top of a building. The hospital’s beam featured signatures from physicians, staff, volunteers, patients and community members along with an evergreen tree and a U.S. flag.
The Pavilion, located south of 10th Street between Dewey and Walker Avenue, will house a new emergency department, intensive care units, and inpatient care areas. The 111,000 square foot, four-story facility project is slated to be complete in May 2016. The expansion represents the crowning point of the $220 million campus development plan that began 11 years ago when the hospital decided to remain in its Midtown location.
