OC&M provided Project Management services to St. Joseph Health System for the Mission Hospital Patient Care Tower. This recently completed 4-story acute care tower added a 20 bed Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) and a 24 bed Progressive Care and Stroke Unit (PCSU) to Mission Hospitals current facility.The project brings the most advanced imaging, diagnostic and treatment services to Orange County by including Single Photon Emission Computer Tomography (SPECT), Dual Source Computed Tomography (CT), 3T Verio MRI, Positron Emission Tomography with Computed Tomography (PET/CT), Angio/Interventional and linear accelerator suites and equipment.

Other highlights include a chapel, a 3rd level pedestrian bridge connection to the existing Mission Hospital as well as an underground tunnel that connects the new tower to the existing medical center.

Due to intricate exterior skin and extensive mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, the team utilized Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology early in the project development which assisted in avoiding costly delays and field changes. St. Joseph Health System was awarded the Gold Vision Award by Constructech Magazine for this innovative use Of BIM technology.
