To support NJH 10-Year strategic plan, DPA worked to develop a conceptual design for a new state-of the-art, 400,000 square-foot specialty inpatient hospital and outpatient healthcare center. The facility is planned to house 144 beds, eight operating rooms, emergency and intensive care units and over 100 exam rooms. In conjunction with the research campus the new space would accommodate an increase in the number of patients in clinical research trials of new medicines, leading to better, faster and safer care. As a result of master planning studies the site for the new facility was chosen across Colorado Blvd from the existing campus and south of the Historic B’Nai B’rith Administration building taking advantage of the primary north south connector as well as the one-way pair of 13th and 14th streets to maximize exposure and access. Site development places the primary building on the prominent northwest corner allowing for maximum surface parking as well as re-use of an existing pedestrian bridge connecting to a new parking structure that can serve both the existing campus and the new medical complex. The building’s design is a tribute to the existing campus architecture and plays on the materials and massing of the Smith Clinic and Laboratory building while introducing a new pallet of colored glass elements to create a consistent language across the entire campus as a component to be used in all new construction.
