Marysville, KS — Community Memorial Healthcare (CMH) reached a major milestone in construction recently when CMH hospital leaders, staff and board members marked its progress with an informal beam signing ceremony Tuesday morning. The final steel beam will be raised into place within the next several weeks. CMH Beam signing ceremonies are typically held to commemorate the placement of the last beam in a building’s construction process.
“Today’s beam signing event marks a key milestone in our hospital rebuild project and brings us one step closer to completing our new state-of-the-art facility,” said Curtis Hawkinson, hospital administrator. “It’s exciting to watch the steel structure take shape and now we are looking forward to moving into the next phases of building construction.”
Despite the harsh winter weather and seasonal rains, hospital officials expect the project will come close to meeting the move-in dateline of January 2011, with a completion date sometime the end of May.
