Signatures from MultiCare employees and City of Covington staff on the final steel support beam become part of MultiCare’s historyThe final steel support beam for the new MultiCare Covington Emergency Department was readied for placement at a “topping off” ceremony held Friday, Sept. 16.
Hosted by Sellen Construction, the ceremony included the opportunity for MultiCare employees to sign the specially decorated red, white and blue beam. Covington Mayor Margaret Harto, City Manager Derek Matheson, Councilmember Wayne Snoey and other city staff also attended and signed the beam.
