PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, EIR Healthcare, the modular innovation firm bringing efficient industrial practices to healthcare, real estate and hospitality, announces a strategic partnership with IMC Construction, a leader in innovative, consultative construction services. IMC Construction has named EIR Healthcare a preferred vendor partner, providing its modular manufacturing solution to building the "hospital of the future."
"This new collaboration will allow EIR Healthcare to efficiently solve tomorrow's healthcare challenges today. We're looking to leverage the network and expertise of IMC while enabling them to offer cost-effective construction solutions to the healthcare industry," said EIR Healthcare CEO, Grant Geiger. "Our goal of this partnership is to optimize the clients' patient and healthcare professional experiences from beginning to end through our new partners' comprehensive network,'' Geiger said.
This partnership underscores EIR Healthcare's plan to create an end-to-end solution for healthcare facility construction, establishing a "real estate-as-a-service" ecosystem. As part of this ecosystem, in the coming months, IMC Construction will be incorporating EIR Healthcare's MedModular into their offerings as a unique solution to the "fixed costs" problem of healthcare construction.
IMC Construction has completed over $700MM in the healthcare sector and will now be able to offer modular, prefabricated hospital builds for the first time, utilizing EIR Healthcare's MedModular "smart hospital room in a box." IMC was recently featured in ENR MidAtlantic for their innovative modular construction strategies with a science & technology client in Newark, DE.
"This collaboration is an excellent complement to our 40 years being recognized as an innovative construction service," said Bob Liberato, Project Executive, of IMC Construction. "As we have evolved, we identified EIR Healthcare as a critical partner adhering to our core values and motto of Improving Lives and Environments and are thrilled for the next chapter with them."
The new venture will not be restricted to just hospitals but also to build surgical centers, medical office buildings, labs, urgent care centers and stand-alone emergency departments, to name a few. EIR Healthcare has also been working to expand its ecosystem leveraging new technology integration, such as the recent partnership with Crestron, integrating Amazon Alexa into MedModular room build-outs.
