    NEW YORK, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Turner Construction Company's Washington, D.C. office has secured a $58.5 million contract for construction of a new clinical tower for the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) in Baltimore, Md.  According to an announcement made today by The Turner Corporation (AMEX: TUR), the nation's leading general builder, Turner will serve as general contractor on the project, which will be performed in association with the Sherman R. Smoot Corporation.
    The 266,000 square-foot clinical tower will be a replacement facility for 149 of the UMMS's 747 beds.  The nine-story tower, designed by Toronto-based Zeidler Roberts in association with Edmunds & Hyde of Baltimore, will feature the latest clinical equipment and facilities. The tower is being named in honor of benefactor Homer Gudelsky, and will include new facilities for cancer care, ambulatory surgery, surgical intensive care, the neurosciences, nuclear medicine and radiation oncology.

Glenn Little, Turner vice president and general manager responsible for the company's Washington, D.C. territory.
