St. Jude Medical Center Northwest Tower, St. Joseph Health Systems, Fullerton, CA

Project Description

Cumming’s national healthcare team provided comprehensive design phase estimating on behalf of St. Joseph Health System for the new $225 million Northwest Tower at St. Jude Medical Center. Multiple estimates were developed over the course of several months on all costs associated with the 200,000-sq.-ft., four-story building, as well as the associated 14,000-sq.-ft. central plant, connector bridge, and parking garage.

St. Jude’s new Northwest Tower offers one of the most advanced surgical facilities in the region. Features include 14 state-of-the-art surgical suites; California’s first neurosurgical suite that combines intraoperative MRI with leading navigation and information capabilities, resulting in a highly precise GPS system inside the brain; unprecedented flexibility for physicians to move seamlessly from minimally-invasive interventions to open heart surgery; smart rooms that automatically record and wirelessly convey vital signs and other information to a patient’s electronic medical record; and a thoughtfully designed healing garden for those receiving care.
