MD Anderson recognizes general contractors that maintain excellent safety records with gold or silver STEP awards. The honors are given out based on criteria requiring safety inspections; review of injury and claims records, workers compensation and general liability; and overall safety management in aspects of a Rolling Owner Controlled Insurance Program project.

McCarthy’s Alkek Hospital expansion project has the lowest Total Case Incident Rate (or TCIR) of the six ROCIP projects currently in progress at MD Anderson.

The 510,000-sq-ft vertical expansion involves a 12-story addition above and a 24-story elevator tower next to the existing, operating 12-level Alkek inpatient tower. The expansion is nearing completion.
