Our Campus Rebuilding Project
The New White Memorial
In August 2001 White Memorial Medical Center embarked on a multi-phase campus construction project that is now in its final phase. A key milestone was the opening of a new 8-story specialty care tower on April 26, 2006. The entire campus project was completed in March 2010.
The first portion began March 3, 2001 with "soft demolition" -- removal of everything inside the building, leaving only the building skeleton. Hard demolition – the demolition of the external walls – began at the end of March. A wrecking ball provided dramatic visuals as demolition continued in May. The demolition is expected to be completed at the end of June. After the site is cleared, the last phase of our campus construction -- building a new lobby concourse, gift shop and chapel – will begin. That construction, and our entire project, was completed in March 2010.
