The right prescription
:+ : By Ruben Cañas
One of our goals in 2021 is to grow our healthcare presence in Oregon, yet breaking down doors in new markets is not easy. Our Portland team took a partnered approach to break through the virtual door, which started with a simple phone call by Tom Albers and Mike Johnson leveraging an old relationship with the head of construction for Legacy Health Systems. From that call, we gained an understanding of their needs and were awarded two design build pharmacies at two separate hospitals with two different architectural design teams. This is when the heavy lifting really started. Compounding pharmacies have tight environment requirements (ISO-5 & 7), which makes for a demanding design that can be complicated with heavy coordination and communication. The Oregon team rose to the challenge – kudos go to our top-notch team members Andy Ware, Jeff Welter and Chris Lee!
With design finished and our permit documents for both locations complete, the stage is set for our MacDonald Miller Portland team to start construction later this summer. With so much to be proud of, teamwork and executing with distinction is what makes us shine the brightest.
