We are beaming with pride as we celebrate the structural completion of our new clinic and specialty building this fall. Your support is critical to our growth, and you are invited to participate in two special events.

On Thursday, November 10 at 12 pm we will set in place the last and highest beam during a topping out ceremony. This construction tradition has an ancient history and is still used today to acknowledge good work and progress. You are invited to watch it happen online at www.facebook.com/hcmchealth.

Beams like the last one are vitally important to the new building’s structure, but its real strength is you. In the weeks leading up to the topping-out event, staff, patients, families, and the community are invited to sign their names on a piece of the building.

From Monday, October 3-Friday, October 14, stop by the skyway between the Red and Purple Buildings between 11 am and 1 pm to leave your mark on a steel plate. We’re also taking these plates to our neighborhood clinics and other sites to give as many people as possible the opportunity to participate. The signed steel plates will be installed as artwork in the new clinic and specialty building.
