National Jewish Health Center for Outpatient Health
The Center for Outpatient Health provides a new grand entrance to National Jewish Health, the nation's leading respiratory hospital. The new Center is designed to help serve increasing numbers of children and adults, while also enabling expanded space for research and education. The project scope included the new facility, parking garage and sky bridge connecting to the main hospital. The five-story Center will house six outpatient clinics, including 110 exam and treatment rooms, with areas dedicated for children and adults. Caregivers will treat patients for a wide variety of illnesses, including respiratory-related conditions, cardiac conditions, asthma and allergies, rheumatology, gastroenterology, neurology, cancer and others. Also included will be a 17-bed infusion suite for patients living with cancer and those with immune-related diseases who require biologic infusions. Shell space has also been designed into the program to allow for future expansion. In addition to meeting the functional goals of the project, the client tasked us with creating an iconic building belonging to campus and community. He outlined six characteristics that all facets of the design should embody: Flagship, Presence, Front Door, Welcoming, Substantial and Significant. These were our guiding principles as we developed the character and expression of the building to create a pragmatic and poetic design.
