Eureka, CA

Reviving a regional lifeline

St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka enabled Petra to do what it does best – allocating resources wisely, and closely evaluating the community’s needs to address what they need most. Through Petra’s efforts, St. Joseph Hospital Eureka was able to significantly improve its financial outlook while completing the construction of much-needed clinical spaces.


The 102,000 square-foot Northeast Addition of St. Joseph Eureka, completed in late 2011, includes new Emergency, Central Sterile, Diagnostic Imaging Departments; a Surgical Suite with eight Operating Rooms; a Cath Lab, 12-bed ICU, and a 40-bed telemetry unit. Halfway through construction, during a time of unpredictable schedules and cost, Petra served the role of Construction Manager and facilitated as the General Contractor for the project. Petra successfully delivered the project on time and minimized the facility’s further exposure to financial uncertainty.
