Designed by HDR Architecture, Inc. and built by DPR, the North Tower features a dramatic new main entry canopy and drop off concourse that connects all major service lines of the new ground level and expanded first floor. It is linked to the adjacent parking garage by a covered pedestrian bridge.
Representing a key phase of the hospital’s $300 million master plan expansion of facilities and services, the patient tower largely consists of in-patient bed units and complimentary healthcare functions. These include: diagnostic services, imaging and laboratories on the first floor; labor and delivery (L&D) services including 12 L&D rooms and a 24-bed NICU on floor 2; 24 post-partum rooms and 24 medical /surgery rooms on the fourth floor; 48 beds of intermediate care medical and surgical patient rooms on the fifth floor; and shell space slated for 96 total additional beds on floors six and seven. The project also includes a mechanical penthouse with a future helipad above and an above-grade basement.
