Citizens Memorial Healthcare Foundation has begun construction on a two-story 80,000-square-foot addition to the Kerry and Synda Douglas Medical Center, located at 1155 W. Parkview St., Bolivar. When complete, the facility will expand to nearly 120,000 square feet of space.

  • Over 8,000 cubic yards of dirt and rock have been excavated and either stockpiled or utilized as fill on the site.
  • The building foundations are 99% complete and the basement concrete walls have been poured. The construction of the concrete foundation walls are currently underway.  To date approximately 600 cubic yards of concrete have been poured and 50 tons of reinforcing steel has been installed in the concrete.
  • All site utilities have been rerouted to accommodate the expansion.
  • The underground plumbing on the main level has all been installed and is nearly complete in the basement and preparations are now being made to begin pouring the concrete floors.
  • Elevator shafts have been drilled for the 3 new elevators in the building.
  • 280 tons structural steel framing and steel joists have recently been released for fabrication for the structure of the building.   The first steel to be delivered will be for the floor directly above the basement area.   (Anticipated date to see steel for basement in 3 to 4 weeks)
  • The Construction Manager is working to maintain the schedule which has been very challenging due to the weather with a wet spring and very rainy summer as well as the late season snows in May.

Dallas County Family Medical Center

The Dallas County Family Medical Center, located in Buffalo, Mo, has started a multi-phase construction project that will allow the organization to better serve area patients. 

Phase I (the new building additions) will be completed by Sept. 18. Phase one includes a new receptionist area for checking in patients, new mental health exam rooms (4 rooms), and additional examination rooms. Phase I also includes the  parking lot improvements, which will be completed by mid-September. Once Phase I is completed, clinic staff will move into the new portions of the clinic so that Phase II can begin.

Phase II (interior renovations) will begin in late September, which will include upgrades to the nursing station and remodeling of the restrooms. This Phase is expected to be completed in mid-October.

Phase III and IV (interior renovations) will include  new mechanical equipment, nurses work area, and an expansion of the hallways. Phase III and IV is projected to be completed in early November.

The entire project will be completed in early November 2013.
