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!
Vendors: Come on down!
The new truck ramp on the northeast side of ARRMC opened Dec. 28. Those with deliveries for ARRMC Receiving can access the ramp off Murphy Drive as they did before, only slightly south of the original access. The ramp had to be moved to make way for the new pavilion.
Let the digging begin
Construction crews have begun digging in preparation for Asante Rogue Regional's new patient pavilion! The six-story, L-shaped structure will help ensure enough hospital beds and advanced surgical suites to care for our region well into the future. But first, a gigantic, 17-foot-deep hole must be dug for the foundation and basement.
Operating suites of the future
Physicians, nurses and other Asante employees got to tour myriad advanced operating suites in early November in preparation for outfitting the new pavilion.
Five vendors showed off their latest technologies in mock operating suites. Attendees were given the opportunity to tour, interact and evaluate each vendor’s products. Representatives with Jacobs, the project manager for the pavilion, say this hands-on experience will be used in making decisions for the pavilion's five new operating suites, which will bring the hospital's total to 20.
Watch your step at Asante Imaging-Murphy
You’ll see a bit of a mess in front of Asante Imaging-Murphy until mid-January while crews work to rebuild a delivery ramp to make way for the new pavilion at Asante Rogue Regional.
A temporary pathway has been created for patients and employees to walk around the construction safely.
Valet has been moved to the south side of Imaging. Patients can pull up along the sidewalk to drop off their cars. A special walkway has been paved from the valet area to the front of Imaging for patients to use.
The RVTD bus stop has been moved north down Murphy Road.
