Rockville, MD – On Friday, July 14th, construction partners Minimally Invasive Vascular Centers (MIVC) and Forrester Construction will celebrate a major project milestone for the new vascular surgery center being constructed at 9201 Cherry Lane, Laurel, Maryland. The 23,000 square foot, three-floor structure will be “topped out” – an occasion marked with a beam signing, speeches and party with food trucks, a DJ and radio broadcast.

The new Vascular Surgery Center will focus on the diagnosis and treatment of all diseases of the arteries, veins and lymphatic systems. MIVC’s goal is to offer minimally invasive treatment with an emphasis on patient education, early diagnosis, non-invasive treatment, prevention and maintenance. The new Laurel, Maryland MIVC facility will feature exam rooms, an operating theatre, ultrasound rooms, endovascular procedure rooms and recovery area. The state-of-the-art facility will include a juice bar, unique art and an open design concept. The basement has private parking, a loading dock and storage rooms. Upstairs, there will be administrative offices, a conference room and a green roof. Exterior work will consist of insulated metal panels, aluminum punched windows and an aluminum storefront. There will also be two elevators, power sliding doors and five rectangular skylights above the reception area. The LEED Certified facility occupies two acres at the intersection of Cherry Lane and MD 197 in Laurel, Maryland.

MIVC and Forrester are very proud of this partnership, which is bringing important economic benefits, jobs and increased access to healthcare in Prince George’s County. During construction, it is estimated that the project will create between 75 and 100 jobs for county residents. Forrester also relied on many local subcontractors and suppliers including Kent Island Mechanical of Laurel; Natelco Electric of Capitol Heights, CF Masonry of Elkridge; Hyattsville Door and Lock of Hyattsville and Anderson Fire Protection of Elkridge. Once opened, MIVC will employ upwards of 50 local residents including physicians, nurses and other healthcare personnel. The facility also addresses an important need for more healthcare facilities in the area and raises awareness for vascular medical conditions. As a show of support for this effort, Prince George’s County officials and Economic Development representatives will be on hand at the topping out celebration.

This historic healthcare project has been led by MIVC President and Director of Business Affairs, Wendy Muhammad, who says, “Vascular disease is rampant in our community.  We are truly honored to be of service and very appreciative of strategic partners like Forrester, who echo our mission of profit with a purpose.”

Forrester’s President Steve Houff continues “Investing in our neighbors, building lasting business relationships and embracing our clients’ missions are values at the center of everything we do as a company. I am really proud of this project and the partnership with MIVC because of what it represents. It allows us to leverage our team’s expertise as great builders to actively support our community and partners, which is the perfect situation for our company.”
