West Point, Georgia - May 20, 2013 - Batson-Cook Construction has been named one of the nation’s top healthcare general contractors for the fourth consecutive year by Modern Healthcare magazine.

The 98-year-old general contracting and construction management firm was ranked 12th in the magazine’s 2013 Construction and Design Survey, which ranks the nation’s general contractors based on the construction contract value of healthcare space completed during the previous year.

Batson-Cook delivered more than $190 million in healthcare facilities in 2012, representing more than 700,000 square feet of new and renovated space.  Among the firm’s notable healthcare projects completed last year were the $107 million J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Tower of Baptist Medical Center and Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida; the $71 million Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern Regional Medical Center in Newnan, Georgia; and Valley Healthcare, a 30,000 SF, $7 million multi-specialty Medical Office Building in Columbus, Georgia.

“Batson-Cook Construction is honored to be named among the ‘best of the best’ nationally for our healthcare construction,” said Randy Hall, CEO. “I am proud of our team, which brings experience and innovation to the pre-construction, construction management and general contracting phases of these complicated projects.”

Batson-Cook has risen steadily in the rankings since placing 27th  in 2010.
