Using human-centered design techniques, SmithGroup, working with RTA Architects, has identified ways to optimize operations spread over two buildings, while creating a unified and seamless campus. The expansion and renovation strategy allows the hospital to convert from semi- to all-private patient rooms. Outpatient services are nearly doubled, with larger exam rooms, support services, and a new procedure suite. Patient rooms are enhanced with natural light and cutting-edge environmental controls, while new dining and lounge areas provide space for family gatherings, private conversations, and respite.
