Kiewit’s experience in the healthcare market dates back to the construction of Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska in 1927. Since that time we have worked on countless projects, ranging from multi-floor renovations of operating hospitals, to new specialty clinics, medical research laboratories, hospitals and medical campuses. By combining our experienced project teams and proven planning methods with the latest technology, we have the ability to build any size healthcare project safely, on-time and on-budget.
There is no substitute for experience when it comes to healthcare construction. Every Kiewit Building Group healthcare project is led by members of our specialized Healthcare Group. This Group focuses strictly on healthcare construction and regularly receives continuing education through the American Society of Healthcare Engineers and other industry organizations. This specialized healthcare market focus continues through the commissioning process, project closeout and warranty support. From preconstruction planning through construction and post construction support, your project will be in the hands of a proven team of healthcare construction experts.
Kiewit Building Group has become a trusted partner with Saint Anthony Central Hospital, one of the largest acute care hospitals in the Denver area. Because of our track record of successfully delivering projects on time and on budget, we have been retained for several projects at the 109-year-old hospital.
