St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital

LOCATION: Murfreesboro, TN
PROJECT NOTES: LawlerWood was selected to plan, program, design, construct and equip a new 286-bed hospital for St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital. St. Thomas is a member of Ascension Health, the largest not-for-profit health care organization in the United States. LawlerWood won the chance to manage this project by competing head-to-head with several large national project management firms. LawlerWood was chosen because of the firm’s successful track record, broad-based development experience, relevant health care experience, and history of good team chemistry. The project received national attention for its successful use of Lean Construction modeling, scheduling and Integrated Project Delivery Management tools. The hospital opened two months ahead of schedule and was completed under budget.
