Today, George Bischalaney, CEO of Eden Medical Center, received the keys to our new hospital at a ceremony on the patio garden.
Mr. Bischalaney reflected on the outstanding achievements of the project team over the past three years and their long, hard work in moving the new Eden Medical Center from an idea to a reality. “Today, I want to acknowledge all the amazing work our project team–along with the hundreds of men and women who worked on this project–has done to make this happen,” he said. “It’s a prideful and exciting day for us.”
He also added that it would not have happened without the time and efforts of Bryan Daylor, vice president of ancillary services at Eden Medical Center; Bob Bosold, project director for Eden Medical Center; and Cassandra Clark, communications lead for the team.
“It’s unusual to deliver a project this complex on budget and on time,” explained Digby Christian, Sutter Health project manager, “but this team put forth an amazing effort to make that happen.”
George Hurley, DPR general contractor, noted: “It is an honor for us to be part of building such a great hospital. It was wonderful to see the design and construction teams working together so effectively and successfully, and what a great reception the local community gave us.”
“Now that we have the keys to our new hospital,” said Mr. Bischalaney, “I am excited and confident that we will continue to do great things as we move forward.”
With the handing over of the keys, we continue to transition to the new hospital, beginning with training and orientations for our staff, as we get ready for opening our doors on December 1, 2012.
