Raising the Bar at St. Joseph Hospital

A special ceremony to commemorate the final structural beam being placed in St. Joseph Hospital’s new Northeast Tower construction project was held on May 4th.

Employees, volunteers, physicians, the community and elected officials were invited to autograph the beam and attend the event.

"This is an important milestone for St. Joseph Hospital and for the North Coast community," said Joe Mark, CEO of St. Joseph Health – Humboldt County. "We’re building a patient tower that will ultimately meet the health care needs of Humboldt County residents for generations to come, and what better way to mark this occasion than to have the community come out and have a hand in creating a piece of local history."

St. Joseph Hospital embarked on the patient tower project in October 2007 in response to an unfunded state mandate requiring hospitals to meet state seismic code by 2013. The estimated cost of the project is $127 million.

Scheduled for completion in early 2011, the patient tower will include an emergency department with 20 treatment bays; emergency department imaging with CT scan, radiology and ultrasound; surgical suite with eight operating rooms and a catheterization lab; 12 beds in the Intensive Care Unit; 40 patient care beds; and new reception and waiting areas for patients and visitors.
