    Balfour Beatty Construction Seattle raises $40,000 for CHI Franciscan Health Systems From Annual Golf Tournament

    September 16, 2015

    It was all heart for the Howard S. Wright, a Balfour Beatty company, Seattle office’s 14th annual charity golf tournament raising $40,000 for the CHI Franciscan Health System’s Electrophysiology department on September 10th at The Golf Course at Newcastle. The 144 golfers, including clients and partners, and 25 employee volunteers enjoyed a beautiful day full of golf and games such as Shoot for the Skyline, Target Practice, and Brain Teaser on the course made for a day of fun for a good cause.

    CHI Franciscan Health System’s Electrophysiology department uses specialized equipment in a cardiac catheterization lab to study and map the electrical activity of a beating heart. The results of the EP studies can be used to direct targeted treatments and/or interventions to resolve cardiac arrhythmias. The Seattle office of Balfour Beatty Construction is currently working with CHI Franciscan Health on the expansion of the Harrison Medical Center Hospital providing acute care to the community of Silverdale, WA.

    Balfour Beatty Construction’s Seattle office has a long history of community investment practices in the Puget Sound region. The company continually supports a number of charitable organizations including American Heart Association’s Heart Walk, Rebuilding Together, and NAIOP Community Enhancement program.
