With the goal of re-shaping and improving healthcare delivery, SMRT led the design team for this 192-bed regional replacement hospital. The 640,000 s.f. inpatient facility was designed and built using integrated project delivery (IPD), a first for hospitals in the Northeast. Three major initiatives -- evidence-based, lean and sustainable design -- guided development and informed the building’s program and layout, supporting efficiencies in energy consumption, staff utilization and the environment of care. The facility achieved LEED Silver certification.
