The new St. Anthony’s Hospital replaces the existing location in downtown Pendleton, which has served the community since 1902. As a Critical Access Hospital, St. Anthony’s provides care to rural populations without other access to care. Following an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) process, the project was streamlined at all stages, resulting in improved building layout, fast permitting, and early package delivery. Our structural team worked on the attached MOB, creating a separate facility cost-effectively designed with a complexity appropriate to its use, yet still integrated with the main structure. For the main building, our innovative and economical steel frame design reduces structural vibrations, contributing to more efficient hospital operations. Our firm’s experience with complex permitting processes resulted in the development of the project site in a way beneficial to neighboring stakeholders as well as the owner. Further early collaboration with the city identified that improvements and extensions to the city’s infrastructure would be necessary and also benefit the surrounding neighbors. New vehicular access, including new roads and a signalized intersection on a state highway, improved previously planned city road upgrades within the area. Thorough civil engineering work minimized the difficulties of embarking on a greenfield project, while retaining the benefits.
