Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Ambulatory Cancer Center
West Harrison, NY

A former office complex was creatively re-envisioned to create a light-filled, calming environment for patients and staff alike.  The 102,000 SF freestanding outpatient facility offers holistic cancer care, personalized medicine, and cutting-edge clinical trials.  An operationally efficient layout helps to reduce the cost of healthcare delivery and support both short- and long-term expansion possibilities.

 
“I wanted to take a moment to personally thank all of you for contributing to the success of Harrison’s DOH inspection on Friday. Without your help, the inspection would never have gone so smoothly.  Each one of you played an important role throughout the long months (and years) leading up to Friday’s inspection.  You have laid a strong foundation for the opening and future success of MSK-West Harrison in October.”

SUNY Upstate Medical University Hospital

SUNY Upstate Medical University Hospital

Upstate Cancer Center
Syracuse, NY

EwingCole designed this 97,000 SF facility to serve as the new gateway to the SUNY Upstate Medical University Hospital. The building connects on two floors to the main hospital building, and is designed to connect via third floor skywalk to a future ambulatory care building across the street.  The primary design objective was to create a comforting and encouraging experience for patients at every moment in their visit.  The design takes advantage of the building’s location to create a three-story atrium that connects all major circulation routes, bringing daylight and sunlight indoors, and uses warm, natural materials and finishes throughout.  A large green roof with a four season garden provides a relaxing vista and an outdoor place of respite.

Roberts Pavilion Patient Tower
8th & 9th Floor Fit-out
Camden, NJ

Planetree principles of holistic, patient-centered care offer increased access to daylight, use of natural materials, and minimized appearance of medical technology to support an environment of healing and calmness.  The project was a fit-out of a shell space for 60 new med/surg beds to support cardiology and surgery.  EwingCole used “live” 3D model review during planning and full scale mock-ups to gain staff buy in and approval.  Some of the work performed included new chillers, cooling tower and elevators.  The design features curated images that reflect New Jersey culture and heritage.

Penn Presbyterian Medical Center
Philadelphia, PA

A new 178,000 SF addition includes new trauma services, an expanded emergency department, relocated diagnostic imaging, and new 60 critical care patient beds.  The project includes upgraded and enhanced surgical environments.  EwingCole improved flow of patients and staff, with distinct paths for public and support circulation.  Sustainable design elements were used to achieve LEED Silver Certification as part of PPMC’s commitments to energy efficiency and to constructing quality health care facilities.  2016 ICU Design Citation Award from the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM), the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Academy on Architecture for Health.

 

 
“All of a sudden, Penn Presbyterian became a robust, 24/7 face for the system. We had the perfect opportunity to right a few design and planning wrongs, and we are very happy with how efficient this space has become. There’s a real cultural component, too—something about the space adds confidence, like wearing new clothes. The staff has internalized this and so have the patients. It’s nice to see the validation that new design can echo the superior level of care that we have always offered.”

Bayhealth Medical Center

Bayhealth Medical Center

Kent Campus Expansion, Phase 2 Pavilion
Dover, DE

The new 440,500 SF, $140M Pavilion includes a state of the art emergency department and integrated oncology center.  It was designed as a platform for future clinical functions and a 10-story Patient Care Tower.  The project received AIA and ENR Awards of Merit; along with Interior Design Magazine and IIDA Best of the Year.

 
“A massive complex broken down and layered successfully into manageable, navigable forms. The most successful strategy is the flowing anthropomorphic movement of public spaces, almost guiding the visitor to their destination. Interiors are well done — organic curves, well lit, beautiful. It’s exciting to see this quality of design in a healthcare project.”

Pocono Medical Center

Pocono Medical Center

Outpatient Cancer Center
East Stroudsburg, PA

The new 65,000 SF, $21.6M cancer center personalizes and humanizes medical treatment through a focus on nature – the local peaks, streams, forests, and skies of the Pocono Mountains – to support and enhance the healing process.  Lobby and main circulation spaces overlook a healing garden; its trees, glacial boulders, and water features extend indoors to the lobby.  The project received an AIA Honor Award; Modern Healthcare Award; Healthcare Environment, IIDA, Modern Healthcare and ENR Best of Year.

 

 
“I see hope here. The clarity of glass, white walls, the colors of natural courts, and the attention to detail expresses the science involved in healing. Light is the theme.  The warmth of the sun lifts the spirit of patients during difficult treatments for cancer. Well composed. Crisply detailed.”

Annenberg Conference Center for Medical Education
Wynnewood, PA

At 39,800 SF, the three-story Conference Center is connected to existing hospital buildings, with conference and meeting venues to accommodate a variety of seating configurations and integrated technology access for computers and audio/visual equipment.  The space includes a medical research library, conference center, reception space, specialized meeting rooms, administrative and departmental offices, and informal meeting spaces.

 
“The public areas of the interiors are given tactility and presence through highlighting a few materials, which are juxtaposed with sculptural episodes formed by drywall ceilings and partitions. More dramatically, vertical extension of the spaces provides for pleasant light-filled experiences.  The jury applauds the designers’ successful efforts to provide an engaging yet quiet place that is appropriate for its function as a health care facility.”

Cancer Center at Schuman Pavilion
Loma Linda, CA

This project was completed in two separate phases.  Phase I was a $12M conversion of 11,000 SF within the hospital that provided 18 outpatient chemotherapy infusion stations, 11 exam rooms, a pharmacy, and physician consultation areas.  Phase II further expanded the medical oncology program and created a single entrance for all the Cancer Institute’s programs, including proton therapy.  Patients can enjoy views over a walled garden with flowering vines and San Bernardino mountain vistas.

 
“It is my distinct pleasure to recommend EwingCole. The project for the Loma Linda University Cancer Center was placed on a very aggressive timeline and we presented this plan to three different firms. EwingCole presented an amazing drawing that far exceeded our expectations. The design was patient focused and contained all the program elements we felt were important.”

Castle of Care Children’s Hospital
Sioux Falls, SD

EwingCole developed a master plan for a 179,000 SF, $43.3M, five-story children’s hospital that combined four parcels of land and closed two city streets.  The new hospital contains a 35,000 SF multi-specialty clinic and offices for 36 physicians; the space was also designed for future vertical expansion.  A ground level pedestrian connector allows access to the main hospital entrance, while a second floor bridge links the hospital to the surgical suite.

 

“EwingCole showed significant thought leadership and the ability to help us develop a facility that will meet the needs of our community both today and tomorrow. Its design is dynamic, and EwingCole thoroughly understands how to meet the rapidly changing requirements of pediatric healthcare.”
