Don't go there
Those beautiful glass windows on the north-facing walls of the existing Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center bed tower have been removed as part of the pavilion construction. For your safety, please do not enter those former waiting rooms on the third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors of the tower. Only construction workers are allowed.
Walls of steel
It's beginning to look like a real building! Erection of steel beams began in April 2021.
Pavilion time-lapse video
Watch this one-minute, time-lapse video of the pavilion construction at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center since December 2020, when the webcam was installed. Many thanks to Cook Solutions Group for the webcam and the video!
Set in concrete
The last week of February marked a milestone: the first big concrete pour of the pavilion's foundation. Join Jim Mahar of Andersen Construction on a tour of the site.
Blowin' in the wind
Howling winds that sometimes hammer the Rogue Valley raise an obvious question for employees and neighbors of Asante Rogue Regional: How does that 205-foot crane on site handle such brute force? Weather-vane mode.
The crane rises
Maxim Crane Works crews erected a 205-foot crane in driving rain on Jan. 6, 2021, at the construction site for Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center's new pavilion. This sped-up video shows them raising the cab to sit on the crane at 165 feet. The actual time it took was 2-1/2 minutes. The crane will be able to pick up 11,900 pounds in a 262-foot radius (think materials sitting on trucks on Siskiyou Boulevard) and as much as 55,000 pounds in a 72-foot radius. It'll remain for the duration of the project. Great work, Maxim and Andersen Construction!
