Women's and Children's Hospital Study
200,000 SF Addition
136,000 SF Renovation
A national healthcare client decided to study options for reinvesting in their existing women’s and children’s campus or move to a completely new campus. Buying a vacant property and developing a new hospital campus plan is an easier conceptual project scope to tackle, so they requested MKM provide a fast-track review of what it would look like to expand their Women’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital on their existing hospital campus they have invested in for so many years.
Our master planning studies ranged anywhere from lean improvements by displacing and expanding departments within the confines of the existing building envelope to expanding departments with additions and free-standing facilities. After two months and a dozen conceptual options that balance existing facility infrastructure improvement along with clinical/patient care improvements, three of the options were developed further with infrastructure studies, structure review to add additional stories to existing buildings, and exterior renderings.
Option 1: A 200,000 SF addition and a 136,000 SF renovation with the program containing 19 LDR Patient Rooms, 46 Post-Partum Rooms, 115 Private NICU Rooms, 27 High-Risk Patient Rooms, MOB Clinic space, and expanding the existing surgery department into the Women’s Hospital footprint to contain expanded Pre-Post, PACU, and Operating Rooms for the Women’s Hospital Program. The Children’s Hospital would remain in its in existing location; however, and would receive new finish updates and potential to expand further.
Option 2: A similar program and scope to Option 1 with more stories, increased SF, and the Women’s Hospital addition would integrate more with the existing Children’s Hospital instead of the existing Surgery Department. The Children’s Hospital would expand its program into the new Women’s Hospital addition and the additional support spaces required for an isolated surgery department within the Women’s Hospital program would expand as well.
