Building Unabated

What bad economy? While the US is still reeling and moaning about the lethargic job market... and the ailing economy... and the wrangling of its leadership to get the nation into more debt...; the healthcare business is laughing all the way to the bank. Baptist health, the Goliath in Miami is getting bigger relentlessly. A new hospital just launched in West Kendall... and now this new expansion in South Miami hospital that was annexed into the Baptist health conglomerate not too long ago. I am always amazed at the speed and efficiency of the construction industry in the US. Compared with what it takes nature to grow a simple tree in years, decades, or even centuries... these concrete buildings are finished in no time at all. However, the consolation us mortal beings have is that from space, these man-made structures are invisible and insignificant when compared to nature's oceans, jungles, deserts and mighty rivers.
Scorching Hot
