Lakeville and Marion, MA
South Coast Improvement Company (SCI), a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, recently finished construction of a new UrgentCare facility at 12 Main Street in Lakeville, MA and opened for business on April 10. This represents the fourth UrgentCare South Coast Improvement has built for SouthCoast Health, a not-for-profit, community-based health system with multiple access points, offering an integrated continuum of health services throughout southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
UrgentCare centers are equipped with staff and equipment to treat a wide range of medical situations—e.g. broken bones, contusions, cuts, burns, animal bites, etc. UrgentCare centers provide patient with less serious injuries an option to the emergency room at the hospital.
“We’ve had a tremendous working relationship with Southcoast Health over the years and it’s been quite gratifying to work on their UrgentCare centers. First in Dartmouth, Seekonk and Fairhaven and now Lakeville. We’re also in discussions about a fifth UrgentCare in Fall River,” said Tom Quinlan, president of South Coast Improvement Company, which completed work on the 5,000 square-foot-facility in just nine weeks.
The new UrgentCare centers features custom millwork, AD sliding door systems, new hospital grade air exchange system as well as other hospital grade finishes. South Coast Improvement also coordinated all low voltage / data requirements with the hospitals data staff. South Coast Improvement also built the facility to meet the requirements of SouthCoast Health’s X-ray Equipment as well as all of their fixturing requirements.
Work began in February and concluded earlier this month. The cost of the project was $1.1 million.
“We developed the healthcare division of our company with the projects like this in mind,” said Quinlan. “Thankfully, the UrgentCares are new facilities. Existing medical facilities present a challenge because there’s often a lot of activity. Through proper planning and coordination and years of experience, we’ve been able to provide a successful client experience because we know how to minimize and, sometimes, eliminate impact on day-to-day activities of a facility that needs to stay open during construction.”
