The Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH) Consultation Department presented McCarthy Building Companies with a top safety designation, naming the $161 million Banner Estrella Hospital Expansion a “STAR Site” through the state’s Construction Voluntary Protection Program “C-VPP.”
The Banner Estrella Hospital tower expansion is currently the only hospital construction project in Arizona with a STAR approval. ADOSH representatives conducted an audit of safety and health management systems and practices at the six-story, 279,000 square-foot tower project, which will serve the West Valley. The expansion project, which is set to open to patients in March 2014, also contains additional obstetrical suites, additional neonatal intensive care unit capacity, new cardiac catheterization labs and a new endoscopy suite.
