HMH CELEBRATED A SIGNIFICANT CONSTRUCTION MILESTONE
A “Topping Out” Ceremony was held on December 23, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. to
mark the securing of the uppermost beam atop the North Tower at Hardin
Memorial Hospital. Immediately following the ceremony guests enjoyed a
Hot Chocolate Bar inside the Outpatient Surgery & Endoscopy Center
The symbolic steel beam in the “Topping Out” Ceremony will be adorned with an evergreen tree symbolizing growth and good luck, and an American flag, along with signatures from our ironworkers, construction crews and our community. The use of a American flag and tree on the steel beam is an American ironworker tradition that dates back to the beginning of the last century.
Construction of the new North Tower began earlier this year in October 2013. The North Tower when completed will showcase two new floors, featuring 56 new private rooms at Hardin Memorial Hospital. The new North Tower is expected to be completely finished in the spring of 2015.
