Layton Construction Co., Inc. is ranked as the ninth largest healthcare general contracting company in the United States in the 2011 Construction & Design Survey released by Modern Healthcare on March 14, 2011. Rankings are based on 2010 construction revenues. Healthcare projects represented 31 percent of Layton's total revenue last year.
A total of 196 respondents participated in this year's survey. According to results, the healthcare construction industry continues to show signs of rebounding from the current economic recession. Layton has fared well in recent months by expanding its geographical reach--current healthcare projects are found in nine states throughout the United States.
Layton recently wrapped up work on the 256,000-square-foot Loma Linda University Medical Center-Murrieta in Murrieta, Calif. The new five-story facility adds more than 100 beds to southwest Riverside County and features a hybrid operating room that is designed to treat heart patients with less-invasive procedures and is the first of its kind in the area.
Projects of note currently underway include an expansion to Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello, Idaho, set to open in May. The 350,000-square-foot expansion includes a six-story patient tower housing 187 acute care beds, a 25-bed emergency department and 16 newborn intensive care beds. The project is two months ahead of schedule and will be delivered in just 23 months from start to finish.
Additionally, Layton is currently constructing the 208,000-square-foot University of Utah Specialty Care Center at Daybreak in South Jordan, Utah; a new nearly 1,000,000-square-foot patient tower for University Hospital in San Antonio, Texas; an expansion project at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. that includes construction of a new emergency room and heart center; and was recently selected for construction of the new 190,000-square-foot, 83-bed Seton Medical Center Harker Heights in Harker Heights, Texas.
