Turner Construction Celebrates BUCOM Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening

MEMPHIS, TN — Turner Construction recently partnered with Baptist Health Sciences University in Memphis, Tennessee, to bring their vision to life by constructing the Baptist University College of Osteopathic Medicine (BUCOM) facility. BUCOM is part of the Baptist Memorial Health Care (BMHC) system, one of the largest health care systems and the largest provider of Medicaid in the region.

The recent BUCOM Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening Celebration marks the culmination of the collaborative efforts of Turner Construction Company and Baptist Health Sciences University. From the initial blueprints to the final touches, every aspect of the project was meticulously planned and executed.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony symbolized the official opening of BUCOM to the public. Dignitaries, community leaders, faculty, students, and stakeholders gathered to witness this historic milestone. Hartley Healer, the school’s mascot, was also in attendance. The ribbon was ceremoniously cut, signifying the beginning of a new chapter for Baptist Health Sciences University.

Following the ceremony, guests were invited to explore the newly unveiled BUCOM facility, providing attendees the opportunity to experience firsthand the cutting-edge technology, modern amenities, and innovative design elements incorporated into the building. From classrooms to research laboratories, every space within BUCOM was designed with the future of health care education in mind.

The completion of this project not only signifies a significant achievement for Turner Construction Company and Baptist Health Sciences University, but also has an impact on the local community. By providing an educational facility, BUCOM will play a role in shaping the next generation of health care professionals and advancing health care practices in the region.
