New York, NY, United States, 2018/03/28 - Modern Healthcare Magazine has once again recognized Turner Construction Company as the top Construction Management Company for healthcare facilities, delivering more than 6.5 million square feet of space for healthcare sector clients in 2017.
Turner Construction Company is pleased to share that Modern Healthcare (modernhealthcare.com) has once again recognized the firm as the leading construction management company in the United States for hospitals, medical centers, medical office buildings, and other care facilities a distinction Turner has earned 18 out of the last 21 years.
Randy Keiser, Vice President and General Manager of Turner’s dedicated Healthcare Group, noted that Turner had completed nearly twice as much healthcare sector work than the next-closest company a total of more than 6.5 million square feet of space for clients in 19 states.
“It’s hard to become number one and even harder to stay number one,” Keiser said, giving credit to the nearly 1,500 Turner employees who go to work on healthcare projects each year. “Our continued success is a powerful testament to the hard work and passion of our people; they have continued to go above and beyond to understand the business of healthcare and put lean construction principles into practice.” He also noted that teams have embraced technology tools such as Virtual Reality, which help end users visualize and make informed decisions about their space before it’s built and support virtual trade coordination and construction-phase problem solving. Added Keiser,“In the Healthcare sector and throughout our portfolio, technology tools are making Turner an ever-stronger partner to clients.”
He added that Turner is fortunate to work with the leading design, trade, and client partners in the business. “This recognition also reflects the skill and focus of our industry collaborators, as well as the confidence and trust our clients place in us when they engage us to realize their vision,” he said. “They are working to continuously advance improvements in patient care and the way we serve communities. We’re proud to do our part to support that important effort and we’re pleased to share this recognition with them.”
