Medical, architectural design and industrial construction teams were formed to collaborate to build-in and achieve results that foster best-practices patient care and recovery during initial planning for the new facility.
Visually, The structure is designed to harmonize and compliment its desert location and austere landscape surroundings, offering spectacular views and creating productive, attractive workspaces for staff to work with patients.
The overall design specifically incorporates state-of-the-art technology for clinical care within military hospitals. Integrated operating rooms feature robotic and information systems for careful, efficient management of patient data. These expanded rooms accommodate the newest equipment including digitized radiological equipment. Recovery rooms feature patient lifts and family areas. The project also includes installation of an intrusion detection system and provides connection to the energy monitoring and control system.
This mission-critical project includes the design of a 21,600 square foot replacement hospital, clinic alterations, utility plant building, ambulance shelter, and helipad. Combining state-of-the-art facility design with innovative energy conservation and generation, this facility will be the nation's first carbon-neutral hospital, setting a precedent for future military medical facilities.
