About This Project
The new replacement facility consists of a hospital tower with associated low-rise ancillary areas and a mechanical powerhouse. The tower structure is staggered in height. One side of the tower is 4 stories in height and the other, 3 stories. The entire tower structure was designed for a total of 6 stories. The total floor area is 212,000 square feet, and the facility contains 106 beds. The hospital is part of a master-planned residential, retail, and corporate community in northwest Houston known as The Vintage.
The facility includes large windows throughout the hospital, including a 4-story glass rotunda at the entrance. In the center of the rotunda, a grand staircase leading to the labor and delivery and surgery waiting areas wraps around a large olive tree. For simplified wayfinding, the emergency department (ED) and diagnostic waiting areas, lobby, reception and admission areas, and chapel and dining room are aligned down a public corridor that spans the front of the hospital. Varying ceiling heights help define spaces. The 22-bed ED includes dedicated, enclosed triage exam rooms and is directly adjacent to the cardiac catheterization laboratory.
