February Construction Update: Mount Vernon Surgery Center
Lots of progress has been made at the site of Skagit Regional Health – Mount Vernon Surgery Center just northwest of Skagit Valley Hospital. The project remains on schedule for construction completion in August 2023 and first patients in December 2023.
As seen in the photos, exterior cladding (the first layers of the covering for the building), framing and installation of the Gypsum Wallboard are all underway.
All three floors of the building will be heated over the next several months using propane heaters. The heat stays on 24/7 and allows for optimum interior temperature and humidity levels for installation of drywall, adhesives and paint. The heaters will remain in place until curing is complete and/or outside temperatures increase to the same level.
Operational planning continues with many key stakeholder groups throughout the organization as we prepare for the first patients at the MVSC in December 2023.
