Palos Heights IL
The new 400,000 SF Hospitaller Pavilion for Palos Health includes the complete restructuring of the campus entry sequence and experience. Construction began with a new 600-car parking garage and a complete replacement of aging infrastructure with a new energy-efficient power plant. The new Hospitaller Pavilion includes 192 private patient beds, an Integrated Procedures Suite with 14 O.R.’s, a medically integrated and innovative Center for Short Stay Care, full service laboratory, pharmacy and a new main entrance to the Hospital. The main entry was relocated from the west to the north side of the hospital campus, with all vehicular and pedestrian traffic redirected to this new location. The new lobby acts as an organizational spine for relocated out-patient facilities and provides a clear path to the vertical circulation to access new and existing buildings. A positive image, security and a natural setting are all influenced by design and support the Hospital’s mission to offer world-class healthcare in a compassionate and caring environment.
