Modern Healthcare's Annual Survey results rank Hammes No. 1 with $2.3 billion in completed projects

MILWAUKEE, WI. March 21, 2018 – Milwaukee-based Hammes Company has again been named the nation’s leading healthcare developer by Modern Healthcare in its “2018 Construction and Design Survey.” This achievement is Hammes’ 20th year to earn the ranking as leading developer among the leading design/build companies. Results of its 39th annual survey were released by Modern Healthcare on March 17. 

Rankings were based on a number of factors, including, among others, the dollar volume for completed healthcare projects in 2017 and square footage for completed healthcare construction projects in 2017.

Propelling it to the coveted top position, Hammes in 2017 completed healthcare facility real estate projects encompassing more than 5.9 million square feet and valued at an impressive $2.3+ billion.

A notable project that contributed to Hammes Company’s top ranking was, Baptist Memorial Hospital- North Mississippi (BMHNM) Campus in Oxford, Miss. The BMHNM flagship hospital completed in 2017 on time and under budget, and totaled over 602,831 square feet with 217 beds. This facility recently won an Award of Excellence in New Construction from Associated General Contractors of Tennessee. 

“Hammes is honored to again hold this top ranking and to continue as the industry leader in the development of innovative, patient-centric healthcare facilities,” said Chris Kay, President and Chief Operating Officer of Hammes Company. 

“Our success is rooted in Hammes’ laser focus on providing flexible solutions tailored to each client’s unique market, mission, facility, finances and strategy. With the healthcare real estate industry continuing to evolve rapidly, we are proud to offer solutions to valued clients that will meet their healthcare facility needs in the future.”
