• Client: Horizon Medical Center
Horizon Medical Center in Tennessee is part of the TriStar family of hospitals. This fully accredited 157-bed regional medical center offers a full array of services, including emergency and inpatient care. Horizon is an accredited Chest Pain Center and a Primary Stroke Center; as such, it is a leading provider of emergency heart and stroke care.
In 2016, Horizon decided it was time to upgrade the medical center’s air handler units, including the outside air (OA). While the mechanical work was essential, it had to be done without impeding operations. And, we’re not just talking about day-to-day business operations: We’re talking about surgical operations. This is a regional medical center, where critical activities happen 24/7/365.
Horizon chose Lee Company to serve as the general contractor and mechanical contractor on the job, confident that our team could develop and implement a plan that would allow for the improvements without disrupting the medical center’s patients and healthcare professionals.
To do the job right, we had to accomplish a week’s worth of work in one day. How’d the operation go? We put our heart into it, as we always do. And, with extensive planning and exceptional teamwork, we succeeded!
