Ron Pauley AIA
Associate Principal / Healthcare
Ron Pauley’s commitment to his clients and their projects has benefited communities across Texas through his successful development of numerous institutional facilities, especially hospitals and other medical buildings. For more than four decades, Ron’s creativity in developing unique project solutions and collaborative approach to his work has helped his healthcare clients attain their goals.
A prime example of Ron’s work at Page is the Scott & White University Medical Campus, a 273,000-square-foot, four-story complex with a new hospital, clinic, MOB, and central plant in Round Rock. In describing that multimillion dollar project, Ron says, “University Medical Center in Round Rock, Texas, has been my most successful project to date in terms of client happiness. The CEO at that time told me that he wished all of their hospital campuses could look and feel as inviting to the public.”
Additionally, his work on Seton Northwest Community Hospital and Medical Office Building in Austin was recognized with a Design Award from the Texas Society of Architects. It also marked a milestone in Ron’s career — 20 years of design collaboration with Seton’s general counsel, Margaret Gosselink, who also directed planning for the institution. The expansion project increased volume without costly phasing and shut downs.
Ron has served as the lead for many other significant PSP projects, including a major addition to Hermann Hospital in Houston as it was converted to a teaching hospital and hub of the University of Texas Medical School development at the Texas Medical Center. He also led design teams for multiple additions and alterations to Seton Medical Center in Austin, among them the expansion of services in the second-floor Women’s Center and a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
On another of several projects for Scott & White, Ron led the design team on a 610,000-square-foot addition to its Surgical Sciences Building and Bone & Joint Institute in Temple. The result was new peri-operative services that included operating room suites, post-anesthesia care unit stations, and pre/post-recovery beds with support areas for Central Sterile Processing, staff facilities, a dietary kitchen and “bistro” dining area, an attached orthopedic clinic, a central utility plant, and a parking garage.
In addition, he served as the medical planner for Scott & White Center for Advanced Medicine in Temple, Texas. That project added 541,000 square feet and renovated 30,000 square feet, allowing an expansion of services along with a new 85,000-square-foot cardiology department and a Level 1 Trauma Center.
On a personal level, Ron names his wife of more than four decades as his “best life experience”. His diverse interests have led to hobbies in woodworking and stamp collecting, but this Texas resident also enjoys snow skiing.
Ron earned his Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects and certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards.
