The MCL Construction team at Methodist Hospital has received the "Sharing the Care" award from the Methodist Hospital Foundation.
"This award is given to individuals, groups, or businesses that take extraordinary steps to donate supplies to help Methodist deliver The Meaning of Care," said Foundation President and CEO Tracy Madden-McMahon
MCL Construction designed and constructed COVID-19 testing booths that give healthcare workers a safe and sterile environment. The enclosures are mobile so that they can be transported easily to different parts of the hospital.
"This pandemic is like nothing I have ever seen before," said MCL Construction Project Manager Tom Carlisle, who leads the MCL Methodist Hospital team. "This was a team effort, not just with our employees, but our building partners who call Methodist Hospital home. We are a big family."
The family includes MMC Contractors and Keystone Glass, who donated goods and services to make this project possible.
The MCL team included:
Madden-McMahon added, "Keeping our front line healthcare workers safe is essential and we are beyond grateful for partners who go above and beyond. The plexiglass booths built and donated by MCL Construction will protect our caregivers and help save lives."

Methodist Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska, announces the completion of the second phase of the Surgery Expansion Project on its campus located at 8303 Dodge Street.
The second phase includes the addition of 15 new surgery rooms including two heart and one endovascular suite. The addition of 60,551 square feet also includes a new sterile processing department, a new waiting room, new office space, locker rooms, and a physicians’ lounge.
“Opening the OR spaces in phases was necessary so we could maintain our current surgery schedule while moving some of our existing equipment to the new OR suites,” said Jay Jadlowski, Service Executive - Surgical Services at Methodist Hospital. “As has been the case during this entire construction period – we’ve not stopped providing surgical services and won’t as we put the finishing touches on our new surgical areas.”
The first phase of the project included the mechanical and electrical upgrades needed to build the new surgery suites, the kitchen and dining room facility updates, and a new Endoscopy Center was constructed on the second floor.
The third phase of the project will start in late August and will consist of the demolition of the old operating rooms and remodeling them into 44 new private prep/recovery rooms.
MCL Construction is the general contractor on this project and has worked closely with the hospital staff and designer to assure the safety and quality that is demanded in healthcare construction with minimal to no disruption to daily hospital activities and procedures.
