← Back to Santiam Memorial Hospital


Santiam Hospital is a not-for-profit, 50 bed acute-care hospital located in Stayton, Oregon serving more than 30,000 people annually. The hospital building dates back to 1953 and has undergone numerous expansions and remodels since its founding. Recently, Cannon was selected by the Hospital ,on behalf of a Concrete Subcontractor, to provide expert support for litigation regarding alleged structural defects at the four-level medical office building.

The structural issues under evaluation were related to the levelness of the floors. Cannon performed surveys of floor elevations and mapped out floor deflections throughout the building then compared allowable floor deflections with the actual measurements to evaluate compliance with design code parameters. Afterwards, Cannon made a presentation to an Arbitrator, who awarded $0 to the plaintiff from the Concrete Subcontractor.
