Hospital employees, such as Mary Sturt from the SVH Foundation, were invited to sign the ceremonial structural beam that would be hoisted atop the Patient Care Tower.
Community members sign the ceremonial beam before it is hoisted atop the Patient Care Tower. Approximately 100 people attended and enjoyed the ceremony.
Say “cheese” — members of the Patient Care Tower construction building team get ready to hoist the final beam.
Up, up and away as a 200-foot crane hoists the last structural beam into the air and onto the Patient Care Tower frame.
Community members look upward as the ceremonial beam is hoisted into place atop the Patient Care Tower.
Symbolizing a safe completion to the framing activity, the ceremonial structural beam is lowered into place. The Simi Valley Hospital banner waives triumphantly in the wind to mark a great day for a great hospital.
The ceremonial beam is lowered and bolted into place as Topping Off Ceremony attendees watch a construction worker detach the beam from the crane’s hoisting cable.
Members of the Turner Construction team take a time-out to be photographed to commemorate the Topping Off Ceremony. These men and women are the individuals responsible for making our dreams of building a state-of-the-art hospital a reality!
Taking a moment to commemorate today’s Topping Off Ceremony with a photograph is SVH President and CEO Margaret R. Peterson and Vice President and CFO Clif Patten.
