Kadlec Regional Medical Center is a progressive, 270-bed healthcare provider serving the communities of Southeast Washington. The Kadlec facility was constructed in many phases, starting in 1968, to the most recent tower addition completed in 2008 with more expansions planned. This 71.8 Million dollar project is a six story building featuring a 36 bed outpatient observation unit, 10 new operating rooms, a 28 bed wing of private patient and two floors shelled in for future expansion. Apollo performed the Mechanical systems (HVAC, plumbing and piping, and medical gas) to support new patient rooms, public areas, surgery suites, & MRI suites. The building is also engineered to go as tall as 10 stories as future needs dictate
The original equipment had reached obsolescence and was operating inefficiently. Significant competition for capital dollars existed with obvious priorities on core mission investments such as a new Healthcare Information Technology system and expansion of the existing NICU.Apollo Solutions Group collaborated with Kadlec’s facilities and executive leadership to develop and fund a project that addressed their facility needs and met their financial criteria. By working closely with the Kadlec CFO, Apollo was able to fully understand what was needed to implement the project solutions.
Apollo leveraged all possible sources for project funding. On behalf of Kadlec, Apollo authored and was awarded a $2,000,000 grant and loan package from American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds. In addition, Apollo proactively worked with the City of Richland and Bonneville Power Administration to obtain $900,000 in cash incentives. In total, the project was awarded $1,500,000 in cash grants and incentives as well as a $1,400,000 low interest loan.
