Merrick County Medical Center

This entirely new 52,500 square foot hospital supplants Central City’s existing hospital, doubling the size, and incorporating new technology. The building itself began with a steel frame structure with masonry veneer. The interior includes six inpatient beds, a rural health clinic, universal care rooms, an operating theater, CT/X-ray room, pharmacy, a full range of procedure rooms, emergency room, and administrative rooms.

As a design-build arrangement, Sampson participated in intense value engineering procedures, helping the hospital board realize its vision of peak rural health while keeping the project under budget. Despite constraints like a tight schedule and a raw greenfield site, we were able, through planning and negotiation with the owners and designers, to complete the project below the anticipated budget.

Sampson brought significant experience and knowledge of the regulatory requirements of a healthcare setting, allowing us to meet the needs and maintain compliance on this project. Sampson leaned in to not only partner with Merrick Medical Center, but they leaned in to partner and communicate with the communities we serve... I commend Sampson Construction for the work they do.
