Quandel building West Shore hospital for PinnacleHealth

Harrisburg-based Quandel Construction Group Inc. is the design-build firm that will construct the new West Shore hospital for PinnacleHealth System, the company confirmed today.

The Quandel contract for design and construction services is for $65 million, said Bub Manning, the firm’s principal.

The Hampden Township hospital, which will be adjacent to the Fredricksen Outpatient Center in the Cumberland Technology Park, will cost about $100 million total, PinnacleHealth has said. It will have about 100 beds and constitute 200,000 square feet on four floors, with services for acute medical and surgical care, cardiology, orthopedics, chronic diseases, transitional care and an emergency department.

Utility relocation will occur first, followed by foundation construction, which is expected to start in October, Manning said. The hospital is slated for occupancy by May 2014, Manning said.

Quandel estimates the project will create about 200 construction jobs.

The two design partners on the West Shore project will be Stantec out of Philadelphia, formerly Granary Associates, and Hampden Township-based Dawood Engineering Inc., Manning said.

Quandel also will serve as construction manager for PinnacleHealth’s planned upgrades at Community General Osteopathic Hospital in Lower Paxton Township. That contract is for $25 million, Manning said.

The project will include the addition of three stories above the north and south nursing units for orthopedic private rooms, and medical and surgical uses.

Harrisburg-based Reynolds Construction Management Inc. will be the construction manager on the third project PinnacleHealth announced Tuesday, CEO David Angle said.

Reynolds, which already is working on the addition at the Alex Grass Medical Sciences Building at Harrisburg Hospital, will be adding floors and renovating the downtown hospital’s cardiac catheterization services, outpatient heart failure area, family lounge, electrophysiology labs and cardiothoracic intensive care unit.

Angle would not disclose a contract amount for the project, which is in the design phase. The project is expected to start by the end of the year, he said.

Harrisburg-based Murray Associates Architects said it has been hired for the design work on the two existing hospital campuses.

All three projects will cost more than $150 million total, Pinnacle said Tuesday. The new hospital will be financed via both borrowing and reserve funds.
