The Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH) at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, has a new, overhauled look as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District wraps up a 45,000-square-foot addition and a 17,000-square-foot alteration to the existing hospital.

By the end of October, the $56.4 million project will be complete and will include a state-of-the-art Emergency Center, a Behavioral Health Unit, and a brand new expansion of the Mother-Baby Unit, which was finished in July.

The project was constructed by Mortenson Company, Minneapolis, Minnesota, in a little over three years.

“The positive attitude the entire team kept through construction was amazing,” said Steve Farkus, Louisville District project manager. “A large group of stakeholders coming together to make it happen—it’s a thing of beauty to witness.”

The project was designed to be (LEED) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design silver certifiable and meets all construction standards for a silver rating being an energy efficient building. All lighting systems and windows were designed with energy efficiency and emotional well-being in mind.
