‘Slipped beam’ closes hospital garage

A parking garage at St. Mary’s Hospital slipped off its foundation today.

Though the structure, which is not part of the Century Project expansion, was closed as a result, hospital officials said it was not a major structural beam. The beam, known as a spandrel beam, is used as a balcony barrier, and as a structural beam holding up the garage, Dan Prinster, vice president of planning and business development said in a release.

Still, the hospital plans to keep the garage closed until the beam could be removed. A walkway connecting the parking structure, which opened in 2004, will remain closed until repairs are made, Prinster said.
