Skanska Builds $ 187 Million for Orlando Health Jewett Orthopedic Institute – News
Swedish construction giant Skanska has won a $ 187 million contract to build the new 371,000 square meter Orlando Health Jewett Orthopedic Institute in downtown Orlando, Florida, a combined inpatient and outpatient hospital.
It will have an eight-story building with 75 inpatient rooms and 10 operating theaters. An adjoining six-story medical office building will have two floors with outpatient suites, which will also house 12 operating theaters.
The medical pavilion and the center for outpatient surgery designed by the architectural firm EYP Architecture & Engineering are due to be completed by the end of 2022. The completion of the hospital is planned for summer 2023.
The hospital is one of the few orthopedic-specific facilities in the southeastern United States, Skanska said.
Skanska is currently building several healthcare construction projects in Florida, including the renovation and expansion of the Gulf Coast Medical Center in Fort Myers and the completion of the second phase of the Salah Foundation Children’s Hospital at Broward Health in South Florida.
