After Major Surgery, "Patient" is Doing Well
“We appreciated the entire JMA team as it functioned quite well. Jesse Gladman’s involvement and commitment to the project was critical to its success. Thanks for making it all happen and on time – that was a biggie for us.” – Ken Alban, Administrator, Santa Rosa Surgery Center
The Santa Rosa Surgery Center was looking for a contractor to renovate their aging basement facility at 1111 Sonoma Avenue. They needed to enlarge their Sterile and Clean Room capacities to enable them to increase their operating area from three to four Operating room Suites, while modernizing these areas. In the process, they also wanted to freshen the look of the entire facility, by updating the Lobby, Women’s Changing Rooms, Staff Lounge and Doctors’ Lounge.
Because of the sensitive and sterile nature of medical surgery, it was necessary to close down operations during the renovation. To minimize the impact of this on the Santa Rosa Surgery Center and their patients, JMA teams collaborated with the Center Operations Manager to put together an ambitious schedule: demolition and construction activities would be compressed into 10 days, working 24-hour days. Delays would be unacceptable.
The JMA Project Management team, John Fox and Andrew Supinger, expedited the planning and submittal process in 40 days. Then at 5:00 PM, Friday, September 10th, The Center turned their facility over to us. JMA general superintendent, Jesse Gladman, supervised the entire construction project and led the day shifts while our superintendent Marty Costa directed the night shifts. Using three shifts of JMA carpenters and laborers, and a team of some of the most reliable local subcontractors, we successfully completed the project and turned the facility back into the hands of the medical team at 9:00 AM on September 20th, ten days later. The medical team took the day to move back into their offices and were back in the surgery business on September 21st.
