2015 PCI Design Award Winner - Mercy Joplin Hospital

On May 22, 2011 an EF-5 tornado demolished St. John's Mercy Regional Medical Center in Missouri. After assessing the damage, they determined that the precast concrete was the most resilient component of the original structure. As plans began on the new hospital, the architect, HKS Inc., specified precast concrete not only for its durability, but also for its aesthetic capabilities.

The new $345 million Mercy Joplin Hospital features precast concrete exterior cladding, concrete roofs with hurricane-grade penthouses and high-impact glass secured by the precast concrete. The precaster, Enterprise Precast Concrete, Inc., used Versa-Brix® M from Architectural Polymers to create the strong visual facade that offered the necessary levels of storm resistance.
