AdventHealth Taneja Center for Surgery
The six-story, 300,000 SF hospital expansion not only rebrands the entire campus, but also places patient access for the vertically integrated, 18 operating room surgical service line and 96 bed addition for medically complex patients (expandable to 300) at the front door.
The two-story lobby connects visitors with the exterior environment. Natural gardens are integrated within this space. The surgical service line is located at the front door of the hospital, and a monumental stair, designed as a sculptural element, ties the entry concourse with the surgery waiting space for families above. By locating the patient restrooms inboard, we free up the façade so the patient rooms have abundant light. Materials are upscale and durable for reducing hospital infections and long-term maintenance.
