Methodist Olive Branch Hospital

On October 19, 2011 LeBonheur Methodist Healthcare broke ground on a new 100-bed 5-story, approximately 210,000 SF hospital on a green field site in Olive Branch, Mississippi. MMC Contractors and our joint venture partner G & J Gipson Mechanical were selected as part of an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) team for the design and construction of the new hospital and central utility  plant. The Gipson/MMC Contractors team is providing full mechanical, plumbing and medical gas pre-construction, fabrication and construction services.

The project is being designed and constructed utilizing Integrated Project Delivery Methodology and Lean Construction Principles.  MMC Contractors is responsible for the layout, design, and permit plan development of all plumbing and HVAC systems in coordination with the Professional Engineer’s oversight

The hospital was designed using LEED energy conservation principals including a ground source heat pump system with 250 geothermal wells and 200+ individual heat pumps with outside air supplied via dedicated outside air units. domestic hot water for the building is generated entirely by geothermal heat pumps. 

The new full-service hospital includes:

  • Emergency Department
  • Obstetrics including Labor & Delivery and Nursery
  • Cardiology - including open heart
  • A diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac cath. lab
  • MRI
  • Pharmacy and Laboratory
  • Surgery
  • Administrative facilities

The new facility opened in August 2013, providing Methodist Healthcare a new LEED Gold In-patient facility to serve approximately 47,000 Mississippi residents who live in the Olive Branch area.

In May 2014, the project became the 2nd healthcare facility in the United States to achieve LEED GOLD Certification.
