St. Elizabeth Cancer Center

Edgewood, Kentucky

St. Elizabeth Medical Center is leading the way in Cancer Care treatment in the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati areas with the construction of a new$160 million Cancer Center addition. This new project consists of a five story 235,000 square foot addition with a 70,000 square foot three story patient room on top of the existing fully functioning 4 story Patient Tower.

Garren Colvin, CEO of St. Elizabeth Medical Center, wanted this building to be a “Key component in fulfilling our ongoing vison to lead Northern Kentucky to become one of the healthiest communities in America”. CMTA embraced this and wanted the engineering of the building to be a part of this vision. Examples of this include additional filtration and airflow treatment for the conditioned air of the building and silver ionization water treatment improving the water quality for the patients. The building also needs to be very energy efficient so that additional resources can be used for patient treatment rather than operation and maintenance, and thus, the building is designed to be Energy Star Certified.
