EwingCole to Design Cancer Center Addition at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center

Washington, DC (May 2012) – EwingCole, an award-winning architecture and engineering firm, has been selected by the Johns Hopkins Health System to design a new radiation oncology addition and renovation to the Bayview Medical Office Building. The Sydney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center will open in late 2013.

“The new Kimmel Cancer Center presents an extraordinary opportunity not only to expand treatment capacity but also to create an environment that gives evidence of the compassion and quality of care at Johns Hopkins,” said Andy Jarvis, AIA, LEED AP, principal of EwingCole’s Healthcare Practice.

The 18,000-square-foot addition will include exam/consult rooms, clinical support space, linear accelerators and a radiation therapy simulator. The 7,500-square-foot renovation includes vitals/phlebotomy, an infusion area and oncology pharmacy. The project’s estimated construction cost is $10,500,000.

“Over the past nine years, EwingCole has designed 20 new outpatient cancer centers. Our team of architects, engineers and interior designers are veterans of these projects,” continued Jarvis. “With each new cancer center, we find ways to improve the efficiency of care, enhance the cancer patient’s experience, improve energy efficiency and reduce construction costs.”

EwingCole is a national expert in cancer center design and has designed facilities for National Cancer Institute designated centers including Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Fox Chase Cancer Center, City of Hope National Medical Center and the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center. Additional cancer center clients include AtlantiCare Health System, North Shore Long Island Jewish and SUNY Upstate Medical University.

EwingCole’s Bayhealth Pavilion Wins Best of Year

 “Can you believe this is a hospital? Look, it’s gorgeous!” – Juror comment
Philadelphia, PA (December 2012) –  EwingCole, one of the nation’s leading architecture, engineering, and interior design firms, is pleased to announce that the firm’s design for Bayhealth Medical Center’s Phase II Pavilion has been recognized by Interior Design as Best of Year 2012 in the Health Care: Large category.

The work was honored on November 29, 2012, when over 800 designers and manufacturers gathered in New York City to celebrate the best projects and products of the year.

For this 7th annual event, Best of Year Project Design honorees were selected by Editor-in-Chief Cindy Allen and a jury of design leaders from four finalists in each of 45 categories, chosen from over 550 total submissions.

Present to receive the awards were Designer Saul Jabbawy, Architect Mary Frazier, Interior Designer Rebecca Ofsharick, and Structural Engineer Oscar Gomes.

Completed in March 2012, the $140 million, 391,000 sf project is designed as a base for a future seven-story patient tower. Connections to existing facilities resolve a campus strategy for the separation of operationally efficient service circulation from the clear wayfinding for public and patient flow. The program includes state-of-the-art emergency and trauma departments with a helipad. An integrated cancer center located just off the new entrance lobby houses radiation oncology, medical oncology and infusion, a central sterile department, compounding pharmacy and a conference and training center.

Ambulatory Facility of the Future

Presentation by Michael Hubble from The Advisory Board Company

Prior to the Great Recession, hospitals and health systems were pouring capital into outpatient facility renovation and expansion initiatives. As the economy has recovered and capital markets have begun to thaw, many organizations have jump started their planning efforts around ambulatory care. Yet the rationale for investing in outpatient sites has changed and it is clear that ambulatory space configurations will have to evolve to accommodate new care delivery models. Facility layouts must also adapt to advances in clinical and information technologies.

Looking Ahead
Inpatient Hospital Facilities: The Next 10 Years

By Patrick Shultz, AIA, EDAC, LEED AP
In May 2007, the American Hospital Association published its report “When I’m 64, How Boomers Will Change Health Care”. The report details how Baby Boomers, as they age, will impact U.S. healthcare. As Boomers reach age 65, they will do so at a rate of over 10,000 per day, or 4,000,000 per year. The report states, “By 2030, there will be more than 70 million Americans over age 65”. This aging population will utilize the bulk of health care resources and represent a full one-third of our U.S. population moving through the health care system and its facilities by 2030.
