UConn Health tops-off $318M hospital tower

UConn Health Center and state officials held a topping-off ceremony Monday to mark the near completion of the medical center’s new 11-floor hospital tower.

The ceremony commemorated the hospital tower’s final steel beam being put in place. Construction will continue into 2015, with full occupancy scheduled in the early part of 2016.

The tower is one of the major projects of Bioscience Connecticut, which is a nearly $1 billion package of state investments that aim to invigorate UConn Health’s Farmington campus and make it a major draw for the bioscience industry. The initiative also includes building a new outpatient pavilion and adding incubator and lab space.

The $318 million hospital tower includes 11 floors and will house key patient areas including the emergency department, surgery suite, MRI suite, renal dialysis, respiratory therapy, inpatient rehab (orthopaedics, rehab gym and workspace), clinical support, and patient education space. Support services located in the new tower will include central sterile processing and a new main lobby.
