New Harrison medical facility on Bainbridge Island to be built by Tim Ryan Construction, Inc.

Tim Ryan Construction, Inc. has been awarded the contract for pre-construction and construction services for Harrison Medical Center's new facility on Bainbridge Island.

"We're obviously thrilled," said company president Dan Ryan. "We've done a lot of work with Harrison in the past and enjoy our relationship with them."

The Poulsbo-based company has previously completed a wide range of projects for Harrison Medical Center, ranging from the installation of new X-ray and CT (computed tomography) units to the construction of full medical office suites, including Harrison's 6,400-square-foot, 24-hour urgent care facility in Port Orchard.

Other projects for Tim Ryan Construction have included retail and office buildings, restaurants (including Island Cool Yogurt in Lynwood Center) and the Suquamish Museum.

"We're excited to be back on Bainbridge," Ryan said. "It will be nice to have a marquee project going on the island again."

Harrison Medical Center filed an application for a site plan adjustment with the city of Bainbridge Island on July 9. Harrison wants to build a two-story medical building on 2.5 acres near New Brooklyn Road and Madison Avenue, just west of Highway 305.

Ryan said the company hopes to seek building permits by Sept. 1.

"We're well on the way to a final design," Ryan said.

Harrison announced its Bainbridge expansion in November, and the plans have changed a bit since then. Officials with the nonprofit hospital said earlier that a 13,000-square-foot facility was planned; Harrison is now seeking city approval for a 25,000-square-foot facility that would be built in two phases.

The first phase is a two-story, wood-framed structure of approximately 17,000 square feet. The facility is expected to include a medical office, 24-hour urgent care, primary care, rotating specialty care, lab and digital imaging.

The second phase would include 7,000 square feet of space and would move forward based on market conditions.

Coates Design is the architect for the project.

Harrison is planning for construction to start in mid-November, and the facility is expected to take a year to complete.

The city is currently conducting its environmental review of the project, and the comment period on the review ends Aug. 30.
