PMC selects firm for new facility project
October 6, 2022
The Petersburg Medical Center Board unanimously voted to select architecture firm Bettisworth North to design the new PMC facility project during its Sept. 29 meeting.
Bettisworth North, a firm with offices in Anchorage and Fairbanks, names the YKHC Paul John Calricaraq Clinic and Hospital renovation, the North Pole Veterinary Hospital, and the ANTHC Healthy Communities Building among some of its previous healthcare facility projects.
According to PMC CEO Phil Hofstetter's report, the hospital put out a request for written proposals for the project which were then scored by a five-member selection committee with representatives from the hospital board, administration, clinical, facilities, and finance departments.
The committee then interviewed the two firms with the highest scores and unanimously decided that Bettisworth North was the most qualified of the two and passed its recommendation on to the hospital board.
With the hospital board's approval of the architecture and engineering design services selection, Hofstetter will begin project negotiations with the firm.
