The new critical care and surgical tower transforms the campus by meeting growing needs for critical care services and renewal of aging facilities. The new Theurer Pavilion improves the quality of care being provided, enhances the System’s image locally and nationally, and provides a state-of-the-art facility in which to treat patients, teach, and work. The project features 9 floors of cutting-edge technology and a superior design to provide patients and families with world-class acute care, reinforcing comfort, safety and privacy. The in-patient tower spans over 2nd Street and connects to the existing parking garage.

Additionally, the project included the design of a 44,000 sf Central Utility Plant (CUP) to consolidate existing infrastructure, which was located throughout the campus. On track to achieve USGBC’s new PEER (Performance Excellence Electricity Renewal) certification, the CUP provides enhanced capacity, improves energy efficiency, and promotes environmental stewardship.

Page is design and medical planning Architect and Architect of Record for the Interior Build-out of the Pavilion and partnered with RSC Architects serving as Architect of Record for the overall project.
