Craven Regional Medical Center "Topping Out" Ceremony

The last steel beam was hoisted Thursday on a $22 million project that will add beds and private rooms to Craven Regional Medical Center. Hospital leaders gathered for a "topping off" ceremony at the hospital, and all signed the beam.

The project will add two floors and 37 beds to the New Bern hospital. In several areas of the hospital, existing rooms will be modified so that shared rooms become entirely private. The expansion will also bring the hospital up to its licensed capacity of 350 beds. The project will make the remodeled third floor of the hospital a 20-bed cardiovascular-care unit with private rooms.

The new fourth floor will have a 20-bed medical-surgical unit. That unit is for general patient admissions and recovery after surgery.The hospital's orthopedic unit will move from the second floor to the fifth floor and will gain five rooms in the move. It will have 21 private rooms.

T.A. Loving Company of Goldsboro was awarded the $22 million building contract.
