Helen Caloggero Women’s and Family Center Topping-Off
PMB, a leading healthcare real estate developer across the continuum of care, and Providence St. Joseph Hospital, a cornerstone for health care in Orange and Los Angeles Counties for over 90 years, celebrated another major milestone on October 20th in the construction of a new 137,000 square-foot medical office building with the ceremonial ‘Topping-Off’ of the steel structure. Construction workers, employees, physicians, community members, elected officials and donors gathered to sign the 17-foot long, 570-pound steel beam before it was hoisted atop the Providence St. Joseph Hospital Helen Caloggero Women’s & Family Center. The building is named in honor of generous donor Marsha Moeller’s late mother.
The ‘Topping-Off’ ceremony is a long-standing tradition in construction derived from an ancient Scandinavian builder’s rite held when the highest beam of steel is placed atop a structure during construction. The tradition of adorning the beam with an evergreen tree and American flag symbolizes positive intentions and good luck for future occupants. The Helen Caloggero Women’s & Family Center is expected to be complete and welcoming the new occupants in the fourth quarter of 2023.
The Providence St Joseph Helen Caloggero Women’s & Family Center will house a birthing center, mother and baby assessment center, maternal diabetes and wellness, maternal fetal testing, pelvic health and rehabilitation, perinatal education, OB/GYN clinical offices, certified midwives, comprehensive imaging, conference / education rooms, physical therapy, medical oncology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, surgery center, urology, pharmacy, retail Stork Shop, and a Blue Bowl Superfoods outlet. Visitors and tenants also will have access to a convenient underground parking garage.
