“Having worked with Cianbro, I can tell you that I am unlikely to ever again hire any other contractor. Their organization, their ability to adapt to new and difficult settings, and their concern for our unique medical needs were unsurpassed.”

Unique Challenge

Cianbro constructed the MRI room and installed the MRI unit without shutting down the hospital area.  Patient interference was minimal and business was conducted as usual.
