Modern Healthcare Article: “From Powering Cities to Empowering Healthcare Providers”

Sonny Hamizadeh, AIA, Senior Account Executive at SSOE Group, was recently featured in Modern Healthcare in an article highlighting the recent uptick in building renovation and conversion projects in the healthcare industry—as seen in the publication’s annual Construction and Design Survey results. Sonny explains that new construction is still prevalent, but when renovating is more practical and cost-effective, many clients are now considering that route. The feature goes on to detail SSOE’s recent renovation project for ProMedica Health System, still under construction, which the article appropriately dubs a “whopper remodeling job”. The project requires transforming two historical industrial structures in Toledo, Ohio into what will soon be ProMedica’s corporate headquarters. The design consists of repurposing a 19th century landmark steam plant and connecting it to a former bank building to create an office space for nearly 1,000 employees. Complex to say the least, the urban revitalization effort also required the demolition of two deteriorated 20-story brick smokestacks, which were replaced with smaller steel replicas that required close coordination with National Register of Historical Preservation officials.
