Medstar Franklin Square Medical Center’s existing Surgical Suites have reached the end of their useful life, and lack the basic space, equipment, and infrastructure to support the staff in the complex procedures they do on a daily basis. This project to consolidates MSFMC’s two separate surgical suites into one integrated department. The new pavilion faces east to a dedicated entry, drop-off, and parking lot to provide an easy and welcoming patient experience. It also ties directly to the recently constructed inpatient tower.
Hord Coplan Macht’s design for the new 84,882 sf surgical pavilion is composed of key surgical, prep/recovery, PACU, and includes public, administrative and staff support areas designed to enhance and optimize the patient experience, achieve key programmatic and core operational efficiencies and address overall MFSMC campus deficiencies. The project includes 14 operating rooms, 22 PACU, 28 prep/recovery positions that will consolidate the surgical service line at the hospital and help meet needs of a modern surgical program to create an optimal environment for patient care.
From the outset, The hospital President expressed he wanted this project to symbolize a shift in the identity of the hospital, from a community facility to a world-class hospital of choice for residents throughout the region. Our response extends the color and pattern of the existing hospital, in an intelligent, modern aesthetic with clean lines and contemporary materials that correlate with the technological advances that occur within. Inside, the building extends the aesthetic of the exterior, and blends it with a mixture of natural materials to bring warmth to the interior spaces and connect to the human experience.
