Video: Final beam installed this week atop Rainier Pavilion
The final steel beam was installed this week at MultiCare Health System's Rainier Pavilion construction project in Tacoma, Wash. (See video below.)
The beam, which was painted red, white and blue, was signed by MultiCare employees, leaders and project team members.
MultiCare is remodeling and updating the areas serving women, newborns and children at Tacoma General Hospital and Mary Bridge Children's Hospital. Construction began in 2012 and will add more Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) beds, a renovated Tacoma General Family Birth Center and an improved Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
The Rainier Pavilion - facing Wright Park - will be remodeled and expanded along Fourth Street toward South I Street. The building will house expanded labor and delivery facilities, general medical/surgical units and private Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) rooms.
Two floors will be added to the top of the five-story Milgard Pavilion, which was built in 2010 and houses the Tacoma General and Mary Bridge Children's Hospital Emergency Departments and the MultiCare Regional Cancer Center. The new sixth and seventh floors will house Mary Bridge general pediatric beds and the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
