VCBO Architecture collaborated with Perkins & Will to complete this in-depth campus reconfiguration consisting of a large multi-specialty clinic, a new hospital tower housing patient beds, surgical suite and emergency department. This uniquely complex project also includes the demolition of several existing facilities, the re-purposing of other existing spaces, a new central utility plant, a new materials management addition, acute rehab unit, education center new retail and in-patient pharmacies and a large site work package that completely reconfigures the existing parking, access routes, etc.

Programming and schematic design were performed using a Lean design process for both hospital and clinic portion of the project. Space layout, adjacencies, equipment needs, circulation and seven flows of healthcare were assessed with active participation by users, staff and corporate leads, all the while being monitored and guided by the Steering Committee. Both the hospital and clinic were designed using an on-stage / off-stage delivery system.
