Critical access hospital in Oregon cuts down on unnecessary space
ZGF Architects has designed a new 103,000-sf critical access hospital to replace an aging 220,000-sf facility in Pendleton, Ore. The new hospital will feature 25 inpatient beds, a 10-bed emergency department, and a helipad. Plans for the new hospital will eliminate nearly half the space of the current design, reducing nonessential spaces to improve efficiency and patient-centered care. The project is scheduled for completion in September 2013. Members of the Building Team include Sellen Construction (contractor), Coughlin Porter Lundeen (civil & structural engineer), and Affiliated Engineers (MEP engineer).
