With the best doctors, we now look to transform our facilities

In conjunction with renovations to the existing hospital and parking garage, the new building will dramatically improve the patient experience

  • First floor lobby and emergency department
  • Two floors of operating rooms and surgical suites
  • Three floors of private patient rooms

The Medical/Surgical Pavilion at a glance:

The new building will create a unifying front entrance to the hospital and university

With parking underground, the design doubles the amount of existing green space, providing for open, attractive landscaping and a more tranquil environment for pedestrians and those inside the building

A landscaped courtyard and covered arcade connect inside and outside spaces. At least half of the building has sight lines to the courtyard green space

A covered drop-off area, glass-enclosed lobby...

...and waiting areas flooded with natural light

Inviting but controlled check-in areas for security...
...with 33 private emergency department exam rooms to strengthen infection control and create a more tranquil environment for patients and families

Flexibly designed to accommodate a high volume of patients as a result of natural disaster, acts of terrorism, or disease outbreaks

The Heart of the New Pavilion

156 beautifully proportioned private patient rooms featuring:
  • Garden views
  • Adjustable lighting
  • High-performance acoustics
  • Family-friendly pull-out beds
  • Personal storage
  • Individual entertainment options
  • Private 'wet' bathrooms (entire room acts as a shower for flexible care)

And when every second counts...

A rooftop helipad providing direct access to the ED, OR and ICUs – transporting patients rapidly to the correct area of the hospital

Designed with sustainability as a guiding principle, including an eco-friendly green roof to reduce energy consumption.

With your help... Groundbreaking 2017 & Opening 2020
