Casey County Hospital
Located in Liberty, Kentucky on a 6-acre site, Casey County Critical Access Hospital is a 35,000 square foot facility built to replace the existing 60-year-old hospital. Doster Construction Company was the general contractor. The $11.2 million project included: a 24-bed nursing unit and support space, a laboratory, a psychiatric intensive outpatient program, an administration building, dietary and dining, medical records, imaging, physical therapy, endoscopy, pharmacy and a stand-alone maintenance building.
During the construction of the hospital, there were a few obstacles Doster overcame. Serving the rural Liberty, Kentucky area, the original hospital had to remain fully operational throughout the construction of the new facility. This involved precise planning and coordination for switching overhead utilities, power shut down, equipment relocation and daily functions from the old hospital to the new hospital. Doster coordinated this effort for a seamless transition.
Doster maintained the owner's original schedule and stayed within budget for the Casey County Hospital project. Furthermore, Doster worked just over 84,000 man hours on this project without an incident or accident. Doster managed the project successfully through site challenges, schedule delays, owner changes and the requirement to maintain the hospital's full operation throughout construction.
The owners were so pleased with Doster's ability, that in the middle of the project they added a 4,000 square foot Administration Building housing 10 offices, a classroom/conference room and board meeting room.
This project was the recipient of an Associated Builders and Contractors Alabama Chapter Excellence in Construction Award in 2008.
