Healthcare System Builds Helipad Using JOC

Healthcare System Builds Helipad Using JOC

Jackson South Community Hospital’s addition of a helipad to provide air rescues and transportation services was part of an initiative to obtain Level II Trauma Center designation for the facility.

Key Project Factors:

  • Compressed procurement time
  • Work around the ER’s 24/7 functionality
  • Small Business Enterprise (SBE) subcontracting goals
  • Coordination with many agencies & construction was completed while approval from the state for Trauma II designation in process

The total project timeline took approximately 6 months and the Jackson South Trauma Center now stands on its own as a full-service, around-the-clock trauma center. The project was completed on time and on budget with Job Order Contracting.
