On April 3, the team working on the United Health Services (UHS) Wilson Medical Center project in Johnson City, NY, held a topping out ceremony to celebrate placement of the final beam on the new main tower.
The new state-of-the-art clinical tower will add 183,375 SF to the existing hospital and will include four inpatient medical/surgical units, each with 30 private rooms. The tower will also feature a new emergency department, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) suite, surgical support area and rooftop helipad.
LeChase Project Executive Paul Klinko attended the event and spoke with UHS President and CEO John Carrigg on the importance of this project milestone and what it means for the hospital. As the Center’s first major project in more than 30 years, the new tower will provide many benefits for the hospital team and the patients.
The Wilson Project broke ground in April of 2022 and is scheduled to be completed in 2025.
