Earning a place in Asante history
Buildings are like time capsules, carrying a trace of all who played a role in their construction. This is literally true for the new ARRMC patient pavilion. Asante donors, board members, leaders and staff recently signed their names on the final beam that was placed in the six-story tower.
The traditional “topping out” ceremony is a way to thank those who played a role in construction of the 323,600-square-foot building, which will be completed in fall 2023.
“These people will forever be part of the structure,” said Andrea Reeder, director of development for Asante Foundation, which has raised $32 million for this and other Asante projects.
The building will house women’s and children’s services, operating suites, critical care beds, patient rooms and a host of state-of-the-art features.
“I hope that people, when they see this pavilion, understand that it’s not just an expansion of capacity, but an expansion of capabilities and new technology,” said Scott Kelly, Asante president and CEO. “And for the people who call Southern Oregon and Northern California home, it will be that light of hope for the community.”
