- Hammes Company and Sentara commemorate the completion of the steel structure of Sentara CarePlex
West, a 3-story, 72,000 square foot medical office building and fitness center located at the corner of Coliseum Drive and Hampton Roads Center Parkway.
The topping out celebration is a traditional event held by construction crews once the steel frame of a new building is complete. The final uppermost steel beam will be set in place May 10 at 1:00 p.m. with workers and project team members signing their names on the beam prior to its installation. The flying of the American flag from the top of the building will mark the date of this special occasion.
Conveniently located directly across Coliseum Drive from Sentara CarePlex Hospital, Sentara CarePlex West focuses on improving health and fitness. Debuting December 2007, Sentara CarePlex West will be home to an array of outpatient offerings including rehabilitation services, women’s imaging, and Sentara’s comprehensive weight loss program coupled with private weight loss surgery expertise.
Sentara’s existing fitness center, presently located about one mile away at the corner of Magruder Boulevard and Butler Farm Road will also be relocated to the new building. Occupying two stories of the new facility, the fitness center will offer the community improved access to much-needed health fitness services in a state-of-the-art fitness facility. Current and future members will experience a new aquatic complex, medically integrated programs, and amenities. Current members or those interested in more information about membership should contact the fitness center at 766-2658.
