Baylor Surgical Hospital at Fort Worth
Fort Worth, TX
The Page Interiors team collaborated with their architectural colleagues on the full-service design of a replacement 82,000-square-foot community hospital. The intent was to create a sense of welcome for those arriving for patient-family centered care.
A double volume glass curtain wall indicates the facility’s lobby and greeting area. The translucent glass also provides visual clues that the lobby is open to the second floor with a surrounding monumental stair. A contrasting warm-toned, material-wrapped elevator core establishes circulation points of the facility.
The curtain wall then drops to a one-story scale, beckoning patrons from the lobby and leading them along a glass path to department entry points and waiting areas. Family and guest respite areas are provided near surgical services with interior and exterior lounge areas that provide adjacent consultation rooms, and a private discharge route when they are reunited with their loved ones.
The second level accommodates additional respite areas and nourishment for families and visitors with a café that overlooks the lobby garden and adjacent Park Place neighborhood. It also houses business support services, 26 inpatient beds and four intensive care beds.
