Crane to Be Used at Hospital Campus March 30

On Saturday, March 30, a large crane will be delivered to the hospital campus at 8 a.m. and used to remove a temporary generator located near the Mountain building.

Normal construction noise levels are expected. The crane will be removed from the site by the end of the day.

Please note this work is separate from Building Care, which uses its own crane.
