Topping-Off Ceremony Marks Milestone in Alpena Patient Tower ProjectThu, 29 Apr 2021 06:02:25 EDT
This week, officials of MidMichigan Medical Center - Alpena celebrated a topping-off ceremony for the patient tower project currently underway.
Officials say the tradition acknowledges the completion of the steel portion of a construction project with a commemorative beam hoisted into the air. At the medical center in Alpena, the beam was signed the week prior by employees, providers and volunteers.
Then, during Tuesday’s private event, Medical Center Board members and Development Council members gathered to sign the beam.
The beam will be later positioned in a permanent location. Officials say construction for the new patient tower remains on schedule and is slated to open in spring 2022.
