Mercyhealth Javon Bea Hospital and Physician Clinic - Riverside / RockfordIL

Using Lean construction techniques such as 5S, prefabrication, and innovative technology, Mortenson built the 563,000-square-foot hospital and physician clinic in just 28 months. The AECOM-designed building, with a 6-story, 194-bed adult and children's hospital and 4-story physician's clinic, was built using structural steel, curtain wall, masonry, and composite metal panels that were attached to a cold-formed metal framing system prefabricated by Mortenson to enhance quality and speed of installation.

The new hospital provides women's and children's medical services, intensive care for all ages, a cardiac center, and is home to the area's only Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center. The multispecialty clinic will house labs, physical therapy, various outpatient services, and administrative offices. The project opened to the public in January 2019.
