Medical Equipment Contractor Completes $28 Million Project Ahead of Schedule with 100% Turnkey Process

CORONA, CALIFORNIA (March 31, 2014) — The new hospital at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in California is the newest United States Navy medical facility. To get the hospital ready for service, Seamless Care Inc. coordinated the purchase and set up of more than 13,000 pieces of medical equipment on a tight schedule of less than a year. The company helped bring the project in ahead of schedule and the hospital opened in January 2014.

The $456 million hospital provides emergency, primary, intensive and specialty care, with 96 outpatient procedure rooms, 205 exam rooms and 54 patient rooms. It employs a staff of more than 1,000 physicians, nurses and support personnel who will serve 70,000 active-duty and veteran military personnel and their families.

Seamless Care was a subcontractor to the Clark/ McCarthy joint venture construction team. The company was responsible for an equipment budget of $28,000,000 and handled all aspects of procurement, storage, installation and preparation for testing.

“I have worked with the folks at Seamless Care for a number of years and numerous projects,” said Craig Cherf, Chief Estimator of McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. “Their efforts and assistance during preconstruction and budgeting have always proved to be accurate and helpful. In my mind, Seamless Care is one of the top companies in their field of work.”

Thanks to Seamless Care’s comprehensive “turnkey” process, the Navy and general contractors were relieved of the many time and labor-intensive tasks necessary to properly equip a large, modern hospital. The company can assist clients at any stage of a project, from early building information modeling (BIM) to final notification of biomedical acceptance of new equipment. It uses stateof- the-art software and proprietary procedures to manage the medical equipment process and coordinate with the client, general contractors and vendors.

“For a scope of work of that size, the timeframe was extremely compressed,” said Ken Ruester, Vice President of Seamless Care. “But because of our extensive experience in the fit up process and a newly-developed software program that we used, we were able to help finish ahead of schedule.”

The company has worked with several nationally-known contractors in California and is now expanding to serve clients across the country.
