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.

Construction Begins on EwingCole Designed Keller Army Community Hospital Addition

West Point, NY (February 2012) – EwingCole, an award-winning architecture and engineering firm based in Philadelphia, has designed a new $34 million addition to the Keller Army Community Hospital Clinic at the United States Military Academy at West Point.  The project is designed to achieve LEED Silver Certification and is expected to be completed by May of 2014.

“It was important to provide the West Point community with convenient medical care in an environment comparable to the very best private sector facilities,” said John Capelli, AIA, principal of EwingCole’s government practice. “Through a series of design charrettes with representatives of the US Army Corps and the hospital, we have created a project that enhances the outpatient experience with a modern entrance, lobby and a clear circulation path that allows access to daylight and views of the Academy.”

The 51,000 square foot addition will become the home for optometry, ophthalmology, physical therapy, and orthopedics clinics, as well as provide TRICARE office space. The clinic design can respond over time to changes in the mix of examination rooms, patient needs and physicianservices without the need for renovation. This provides unmatched flexibility for the Army and its patient population. The project will be phased to allow the hospital to remain open during construction.

“This project will significantly expand our capability to execute better our mission of providing world-class health care,” said Keller Army Community Hospital Clinic Commander Col. Beverly C. Land.  “It will prove to be a benefit to our patients to have many of our services that are currently […]
