That placement was celebrated by those who are working on the building and those who will work in the building during a brief ceremony May 13.

The beam will hang above the front doors of the building, located across from Mercy Hospital.

For a week prior to the ceremony, the beam sat near Mercy Hospital so those who will work in the building could sign the beam.

It was also signed by those working to construct the medical building.
