ASHE honored designs put patients first

March 16, 2017

ASHE’s Vista awards honor exceptional teamwork on new healthcare construction, renovation and infrastructure projects, according to an article on the Health Facilities Management website.

This year’s winning projects are University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Medical Center at Mission Bay; Memorial Hospital at Gulfport (Miss.) patient tower expansion/renovation; and St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center's combined heat and power (CHP) plant, Syracuse, N.Y.

The honor is twofold, said John Moynihan of Cogen Power Technologies, CHP program manager for the infrastructure project at St. Joseph’s. 

First, the award acknowledges the health center’s willingness to embrace new technology in undertaking the CHP project. Second, it recognizes a close-knit design and construction team, which was able to deliver on the promises of the project, he said in the article.
