McCarthy Building Companies Inc. hoisted a fire and tow truck into the under-construction Erlanger Children’s Hospital Outpatient Center. The trucks were hoisted into levels 2 and 3 of the building.
The firetruck was donated by the Chattanooga Fire Department. The tow truck, dubbed Sally the Wrecker, was donated by Dodd Brothers Towing.
The 90,000 square-feet of new construction at Erlanger Children’s Hospital Outpatient Center is designed with children in mind to help relieve anxiety while meeting the complex needs of families and physicians. Each floor will have a theme and include interactive discovery centers to engage children and distract them from their illnesses.
“This new outpatient center is designed to make the patient experience more comfortable for both the child and their family,” said Bruce Komiske, vice president of new hospital design and construction at Erlanger Health System. “McCarthy has gone above and beyond to construct this new state-of-the-art facility that will meet the growing needs of our community.”
McCarthy has worked with Erlanger Health Systems on several projects, including Erlanger’s East Campus Surgery Expansion and Patient Tower Project.
