Sundt employees help support breast care center patients

During a recent Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) Friends of the Dental School event, the Sundt Foundation—a nonprofit organization focused on improving the lives of disadvantaged children and adults—presented a check for $5,000 to help support patients’ needs at the Texas Tech Physicians of El Paso (TTP El Paso) Breast Care Center.

Karinn Chambers, M.D., assistant professor in TTUHSC El Paso’s department of surgery and medical director of the Breast Care Center, said 80 percent of the center’s patients are uninsured and have very little means, so a gift like this will be impactful.

“It’s wonderful to see the amount of support and devotion that’s in our community for breast cancer patients,” Dr. Chambers said. “This is a predominant diagnosis in our area, and there is a big need for this kind of support.”

The Breast Care Center, accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), provides high quality care and treatment options for patients with breast disease. The center is committed to not only treating patients, but also features a Breast Cancer Survivorship Clinic to help alleviate the stress that comes along with diagnosis.

The funds will be used to provide patient care, educational materials and equipment.

“Sundt Construction’s mission is to create environments where our clients and employee-owners and our communities prosper. So for every project we build, we try to give back,” said Angelica Rosales, Sundt Construction business development representative.

The Foundation is funded primarily by local Sundt employee-owner donations, which are matched by the company. With overwhelming support from the local employee-owners, TTP El Paso’s Breast Care Center was selected to receive a grant from the Foundation this quarter.

“Giving back is important to our employee-owners. We feel it creates a great work environment and strengthens relationships to helps our clients achieve their goals, which is what we’re here to do,” Rosales said.

The Sundt Foundation is the charitable arm of Sundt Construction, which is managing construction of the Medical Sciences Building II (MSB II) at TTUHSC El Paso. MSB II will be home to the future Woody L. Hunt School of Dental Medicine.

The check was presented to TTUHSC El Paso on April 18, during the Friends of the Dental School event that included a hard-hat tour of the MSB II. Through a virtual reality application, about 30 local dentists and community members were able to visualize the space where the school will be located.

The school’s facilities will include a 6,200-square-foot Simulation and Technique Laboratory, where students will hone dental treatment skills on A-dec Simulators featuring life-like, articulating manikins.

City Approves Construction Contract for Eastside Regional Park and Facilities

Construction will soon start on what city leaders are calling “a monumental quality of place project” in far East El Paso.

The new Eastside Regional Park will be home to a public indoor 50-meter competition-ready pool with a diving well – the only one its kind in the region, a community center, gymnasium, computer center, and an outdoor neighborhood water park among other amenities.

On Tuesday, City Council approved awarding a guaranteed maximum price contract valued at approximately $37.7 million to Sundt Construction, Inc. to construct the first phase of a project known as Eastside Regional Park.

“This is going to be El Paso’s largest park and a major regional attraction for residents and visitors alike,” City of El Paso Capital Improvement Department Director Sam Rodriguez said. “Council’s action enables us to begin transforming this 92-acre parcel on the Eastside into to a premier destination for families.”

When construction on this major project starts later this summer it will mark another significant milestone for the City – the development of the first neighborhood water park.

The first phase will span across 10.6 acres and includes three major projects that deliver on the City’s commitment to expand recreational, educational and cultural opportunities:

  • An indoor natatorium with a 50-meter competition ready pool, a diving well with 1 and 3 meter diving boards, spectator seating, warm-up and cool down pool, office, training room and lockers.
  • A multigenerational community center with a gymnasium, spectator seating, multipurpose classrooms, kitchen, dining area, reading room, computer center, indoor running track, and fitness area.
  • An outdoor neighborhood water park with a family pool, toddler pool, water slides, climbing walls, artificial wave surfing feature, lazy river, food concessions, and changing rooms.
  • Other amenities including parking, entrance plaza, walking path, landscaping and public art.

“Residents have told us time and time again that they want more parks and more things to do so that’s what we are delivering. We are on a journey to create great spaces that offer unique experiences while serving as a catalyst for economic development that in the long run can provide relief for our residential taxpayers,” Mayor Pro-tem Michiel Noe said.

Via a news release, city official added:

This project is another step toward realizing El Paso’s vision of having safe and beautiful neighborhoods, a vibrant regional economy, and exceptional recreational, cultural, and educational opportunities. Phase one should be completed by 2020. It will be constructed using the construction manager at risk delivery method, which is efficient and cost effective. This method incorporates the use of a “Guaranteed Maximum Price,” which is an agreement declaring that the project will not cost the City above the agreed upon amount, unless changes are made to design or new services are requested and incorporated into the construction of the project.

When the Eastside Regional Park is completed, it will be approximately twice as big as Eastwood (Album) Park, three times as big as Marty Robbins Park, and about four times as big as Yucca Park.
