The Missner Group Completes Installation of Toshiba MRI for Illinois Bone & Joint
(Skokie, Illinois) – The Missner Group is pleased to announce that the firm has completed the installation of a Toshiba Magnetic Resonation Imaging (MRI) device at the newly constructed three-story 41,000 square foot medical office building in Chicago for the Illinois Bone & Joint Institute (IBJI).
Located at 2923 N. California Avenue, The Missner Group coordinated the installation of the imaging equipment and managed multiple parties involved in the project including: the architect, Technology Consultants Group; the magnetic shielding specialist, ETS-Lindgren; the manufacturer and supplier of the MRI equipment, Toshiba America Medical Systems; as well as the radiological and technology specialists for IBJI. The MRI equipment was installed on the first floor of the property where the coils and magnets were hoisted via a crane through a removed window. The space features concrete walls specified to medical imaging requirements, RF shielding throughout and specialty HVAC and electrical systems.
“The open communication methods and follow-up demonstrated by The Missner Group was integral to the success of this project,” said Ron Streck of Toshiba America Medical Systems. “The construction team, led by Project Engineer Patrick Ennes, was very thorough. They always followed-up to ensure that all parties were kept up to speed and that the project proceeded efficiently.”
The Missner Group constructed the facility last year for developer, Debb/Kosich Healthcare Developments. Glen Missner was the project executive overseeing the project, Patrick Ennes was the project engineer and Angelo Christopher was the site superintendent.
