Baptist Health Implements Modular Construction Methodology

Published 2-26-2014

Baptist Health is implementing modular construction methodology to build its 194,100-sf hospital in Conway, Ark. Pods comprising bathrooms and inpatient room headwalls are being fabricated offsite and transported to the location of the medical center. This process will shorten the duration of construction as the pods can be created while the building shell is still being erected. The completed 100-bed, three-story facility will provide seven surgical suites and a Level III trauma and emergency care center. Occupancy is expected in 2016.
