St. Joseph’s Critical Care Hospital
LOCATION: Highland, IL
CLIENT: Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) Southern Illinois Division
TWM’s critical care hospital design services were provided for this project. As a full-service engineering and consulting firm, TWM offers professional expertise to all phases of a project – from conception to construction. For the new St. Joseph’s Critical Care Hospital and campus in Highland, IL, our work began in the very early stages of site selection with due diligence and master planning. TWM engineers thoroughly evaluating each of six potential sites by reviewing utility availability, traffic generation issues, title documentation, topographic constraints, permitting issues, and obstacles to development. In addition, TWM assisted the hospital in the procurement and coordination of geotechnical, archeological and environmental assessment services.
Our detailed analysis helped the client to understand the constraints of each site and gain valuable insight into the justification for pursuing or not pursuing each one, ultimately allowing them to identify the site most conducive to development. TWM is now providing land surveying and civil site design services for the new hospital on the selected 72.4-acre site.
