In the heart of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, a pioneering partnership emerged that symbolizes the fusion of quality, dedication, and innovation in healthcare infrastructure. With a history rooted in the mid-20th century, the Murfreesboro Medical Clinic (MMC) has consistently offered the community access to superior medical care in a landscape increasingly dominated by sprawling healthcare systems. At the forefront of this transformation stands Lee Company, a local beacon of excellence in the realm of construction and engineering. Their joint endeavor, the Murfreesboro Medical Clinic at Westlawn, is a testament to the relentless pursuit of excellence and a shared commitment to enhancing the lives of the local community.

A Legacy of Community Care

Murfreesboro Medical Clinic at Westlawn, the eighth addition to the MMC & SurgiCenter offices, represents more than just a medical facility. It embodies a legacy of community care that dates back decades, providing quality and specialized medical services that are accessible and close to home. As the neighboring city of Nashville grapples with a burgeoning healthcare system, MMC stands as a steadfast provider of care and empathy.

Quality Meets Expertise: Lee Company’s Role

Amid the backdrop of MMC’s rich legacy, Lee Company stepped in to provide essential electrical services for the three-story, 69,000-square-foot Murfreesboro Medical Clinic at Westlawn. A local entity renowned for its commitment to excellence and personal touch, Lee Company found itself aligned with MMC’s values. The collaboration sought to not only fulfill the practical need for electrical work but to craft an environment that nurtures healthcare delivery, resonating with MMC’s mission.

Lee Company’s involvement wasn’t merely about securing a contract; it was about embracing a shared purpose and a commitment to quality. While their bid might not have been the lowest, it was comprehensive. The real value lay in their ability to offer a full package – electrical, plumbing, and mechanical services. Their willingness to foster communication and collaboration between the teams added an extra layer of efficiency to the project.

Setting the Bar High: Unveiling Excellence in Electrical Work

The scale of the project demanded meticulous attention to detail, where no room for error existed. Lee Company’s electrical work encompassed a vast spectrum of tasks, from wiring connections for critical medical equipment to ensuring fire safety measures through proper grounding and fire caulking of penetrations. The complexity of the electrical scope required ingenuity and precision, considering the essential role electricity plays in the clinic’s operations.

With more than 30,000 man-hours invested over a 16-month period, Lee Company’s team demonstrated unwavering dedication. Approximately 20 electrical workers were stationed on-site at any given time, ensuring that the project not only met deadlines but upheld the highest standards of safety and efficiency. The scope of their work included a myriad of components, from wiring for medical equipment to low-voltage systems, fire alarms, and lightning protection.

Overcoming Challenges: Flexibility and Innovation

The journey to success was paved with challenges and unforeseen circumstances that required adaptability and innovation. When faced with delays in the installation of electrical equipment, Lee Company didn’t falter; they collaborated with the client to devise solutions. The team’s flexibility was evident in their response to requests from the general contractor for additional power, which Lee Company promptly secured through the rental of switchgear. The team’s focus remained unswerving – customer satisfaction and project excellence.

Adapting to Change: A Testimony of Expertise

Lee Company’s agility extended to accommodating changes in the project’s finish plan. Initially slated for a top-to-bottom approach, the plan was revised due to architectural adjustments. The flexibility to adapt and execute flawlessly on a revised plan demonstrated Lee Company’s commitment to fulfilling the client’s needs. Even when the building inspector requested the incorporation of firewalls, the team embraced the challenge, ensuring compliance without compromising quality.

Innovating Through Prefabrication: A Game Changer

One of the standout features of Lee Company’s approach was the integration of prefabricated electrical components from their manufacturing facility. The shift towards in-house prefabrication for electrical components streamlined the process, saved critical man-hours, and increased overall efficiency. This innovative approach not only provided value to the MMC Westlawn project but also paved the way for future projects to benefit from the same time-saving, cost-effective, and quality-enhancing methodology.

A Shared Devotion to Community

At the core of this partnership between MMC and Lee Company lies a mutual dedication to their communities. Just as MMC continues to serve Murfreesboro and beyond, Lee Company has shown unwavering commitment to expanding its services in harmony with the changing needs of the region. The Murfreesboro Medical Clinic at Westlawn isn’t just a medical facility; it’s a manifestation of shared values, a testament to the power of collaboration, and a beacon of hope for better healthcare for generations to come.
