HealthSouth Cypress Hospital
Pieper collaborated with Hoar Construction on this 40-bed rehabilitation hospital in Cypress, Texas, for HealthSouth, the nation’s largest provider of inpatient rehabilitative healthcare services.
Pieper’s responsibilities for the project included electrical, lightning protection, fire alarm system and the cabling for nurse calls, data, intercom and telephone systems and security. One of the biggest obstacles the project faced was the location of the main centerpoint service. There was no access to the site for power, so a new easement from Farm-to-Market Road 1960, across someone’s property, with poles had to be built. Generators were used for temporary power for construction.
“According to the owner’s representative, HealthSouth feels that the HealthSouth Cypress Hospital is the best quality project they have ever built — a quality project turned over ahead of schedule and with no (lost-time) injuries.”
