Geiger Brothers installs new medical facility at Pike County site

X-152A Medical Facility

Geiger Brothers has completed installation of a new medical facility under contract to Fluor/Babcock & Wilcox Portsmouth (FBP), part of the infrastructure and miscellaneous project work being done in preparation for and as part of Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant Decontamination & Decommissioning (D&D)

Geiger Brothers work to install the new medical facility included water and sanitary line installations, telecommunications cabling and connections, installation and connection of the eight component units, and interior finishes including floors, ceilings, door frames and cabinetry.

Adena Occupational Health, Chillicothe, owns the “8-plex” facility that serves Fluor-B&W employees and subcontractors.   The facility offers 5,371 square feet of space and includes five spacious exam rooms, one procedure room, and rooms for hearing, pulmonary function and vision tests.

The facility is now staffed with Fluor-B&W employees and Adena medical professionals and offers a wide range of diagnostic testing, wellness programs and emergency medical care.  Services include employee physicals, injury care, fit for duty exams, drug testing, blood draws, x-rays, and return to work exams.

“The X-152A Adena medical facility project was much more than simply installing a trailer,” noted the Fluor-B&W project manager.  “This is the culmination of the previous closure of the long-serving on-site medical facility, and designing a medical facility that will meet the needs of the Portsmouth workforce today and in the future, while maintaining the high standards of Adena. Many hours went into the project to ensure the final deliverable meets everyone’s expectations and needs.  Most importantly, safety was built into the project through planning, engineering, training, security and implementation.”

Although the Adena Medical Trailer is part of the X-152 Trailer complex, it looks very different due to its color. The color serves to allow visitors to identify the facility easier and as a symbol of how different this trailer is from any of the others.

The first day of operation was February 24.  On March 5, the staff welcomed a steady stream of more than 100 visitors for an open house and tours of the facility.  The Medical Facility’s Operations Manager said, “I was really pleased with the turnout and had a great time showing off the clinic. There was a wide mix of people including Fluor-B&W employees, Adena staff, and Department of Energy representatives. All of the medical staff love the facility and is glad to be here on site.”
