Spokane-based Lydig Construction Inc. has won a $6.4 million contract to expand the cancer center at Evergreen Hospital Medical Center, on the state's West Side, says Heidi Maki, a marketing manager for Lydig.
Lydig's Bellevue office is handling the project, located at 12040 N.E. 128th, in Kirkland, about eight miles north of Bellevue, Maki says.
She says the project will finish out the shell space on the first floor of the hospital to include an oncology center and administrative offices with a combined total of 29,800 square feet of floor space for the hospital's cancer center. The project also will involve relocating the hospital's main reception area, Maki says.
The project, which Seattle architectural firm CollinsWoerman designed, is expected to be completed next October.
Evergreen Hospital, which has 275 beds and is the centerpiece of King County Public Hospital District No. 2, opened in 1972 as a modest three-story facility, the hospital's website says. It has been expanded since then to include a fourth-floor addition to the original structure, an emergency department addition and later expansion, a seven-story patient tower, and a hospice center. In addition, the hospital district's services include medical groups, home care, and community health programs.
Most recently, Lydig was the contractor on a $1.5 million pre-surgery suite-renovation project at Evergreen Hospital, which it completed in March, Maki says.
The district, which is funded in part though a property-tax levy, serves northeast King County, including the cities Kirkland, Bothell, Duvall, Kenmore, Redmond, Woodinville, and Sammamish.
