Healthcare: Ambulatory | Medical Office Building

St. Joseph Hospital

Ambulatory Care Center

The St. Joseph Hospital campus was transformed by this comprehensive multi-phased project which included a significant facility expansion and reconfiguration of vehicular and pedestrian circulation. Working closely with the Hospital, the design team created just the right balance between inspiration and practical design solutions. Abundant daylight, warm colors and natural materials offer inviting spaces to welcome patients and visitors, while at the same time reflecting St. Joseph’s culture and mission.

A sweeping drop-off canopy defines the new hospital entrance, leading visitors into a welcoming atrium that connects outpatient and inpatient services and care areas. Visitors have direct access to admitting, family waiting areas, a new retail pharmacy, a café, and a gift shop—without interfering with patient privacy.

The first floor addition houses new cardiovascular and oncology centers. Significant first floor renovations provide a new, fast-track emergency department, and improved access to diagnostic imaging, nuclear medicine, breast health, and phlebotomy. The second floor includes the Surgi-Center and Endoscopy Suite. A new, freestanding, two-level parking garage and new traffic patterns were added on site, separating emergency traffic from that of visitors and outpatients.
