Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital Medical Tower II and Pedestrian Bridge

Albany, GA

Project Description

Page has been designing healthcare projects for Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital for over two decades. Two of the most recent projects on its main campus in Albany include the Medical Tower II, which houses Phoebe’s expanding cancer center, and the Centennial Sky Bridge, the first timber bridge in Albany in 70 years, and the only timber bridge in the world that spans between two buildings.

An earlier project, the 195,000-square-foot Medical Tower I, incorporated a 60,000-square-foot comprehensive cancer treatment and research center into the two lower levels of the eight-story building. Within fifteen years, the center’s outpatient volume tripled. When planning the 170,000-square-foot Medical Tower II, the design team directly connected the first three levels of the two towers. As a result, the delivery of the clinical services was more efficient and the cancer center was able to expand onto two full floors. The center of excellence, which treats over 1,300 new cases annually, is in clinical and academic partnership with Duke University and the Medical College of Georgia. The center brings in the newest proven technologies, and increases the facility’s ability to attract pharmaceutical based research opportunities.
