Clinicians have access to the latest in leading-edge technology and care delivery, and benefit from working 10
in a high-quality work environment that enhances collaboration and communication to attract and retain the region’s top talent. Working with hospital leadership, department heads, and key stakeholder groups, ZGF applied a Lean design approach to validate project goals, study existing workflow and operational processes, and incorporate improvements into schematic design. Focused, full-scale mock-ups were used to assist clinical and cross-functional teams in sizing patient rooms and standardizing core layouts. The new St. Joseph Hospital is also Denver’s greenest hospital. It uses 32% less electricity, consumes 29% less natural gas, and reduces total utility use by 41% compared to the original facility.
CHI FRANCISCAN HEALTH Franciscan Medical Pavilion-Highline
ZGF PROGRAMMED AND DESIGNED THE 48,000 SF, TWO-STORY CLINIC, NOW THE PROTOTYPE FOR ALL CHI FRANCISCAN CLINICS.
To achieve the most efficient, patient centered solution, ZGF used a Lean, cross-functional approach. This involved working with an integrated team of clinic leadership, care providers, staff and patients assembled to work collaboratively with the design team to create a facility fully focused on the patient. Using six Integrated Design Events, the team collectively made operational and design decisions to achieve optimized outcomes. These include a standard clinic pod module for flexibility for use by specialty providers and collocating specialty services, decreased exam room-to-provider ratio from
3:1 to 2.5:1, a two-month reduction in schedule, and an incentive payout to the project team for achieving schedule and budget.
NYU LANGONE HEALTH Research Facilities for the Departments of Psychiatry and Child + Adolescent Psychiatry NEW YORK, NEW YORK
ZGF DESIGNED 67,800 SF OF NEW CLINICAL, RESEARCH, AND ADMINISTRATIVE SPACE ON TWO FLOORS IN THE ONE PARK AVENUE BUILDING TO ACCOMMODATE MAJOR PORTIONS OF NYU LANGONE HEALTH’S PROGRAMS.
The Department of Psychiatry’s lobby is located on the eighth floor and the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Department’s lobby is on the seventh floor. Each has a unique identity, while maintaining the desired separation between clients of differing ages. The overall facility includes open workstations, shared and private offices, workrooms, conference rooms, and collaboration spaces for over 400 employees—providing both visual and acoustic privacy, as well as security within and between the departments. The density of the program and the building’s large footprint influenced the concept of “The City” as an organizing theme. This was reflected 18
in the layout by the creation of smaller neighborhoods, a clear circulation plan, and community work spaces—in the same way that the City employs plazas, streets, and parks to define unique character. Conference facilities and the Child Studies “Hub” were strategically located to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration between the child, adolescent, and adult programs. Color and materials were carefully selected to serve the working needs of professionals and staff, while providing interest and variety for the broad range of ages of visitors and patients.

Sited to maximize natural daylight and views to nature, the hospital flanks a healing garden, a metaphorical heart for the Pendleton community.
CHI FRANCISCAN HEALTH St. Anthony Hospital
GIG HARBOR, WASHINGTON
ZGF PROGRAMMED AND DESIGNED THE 256,000 SF, 80-BED ACUTE-CARE HOSPITAL ON A 30-ACRE SITE.
Through Integrated Design Events with hospital staff and leadership, the project team analyzed areas of waste and implemented a Lean, cross-functional approach to minimize waste and enhance patientcentered care. The process resulted in increased operational efficiency; an example includes a split-flow process for triaging emergency room patients that has reduced the average wait time to approximately 10 minutes. The hospital includes a 24-hour emergency department; medical, surgical, and critical care units; inpatient and outpatient surgery; a heart catheterization laboratory; diagnostic services; physical, occupational, and speech therapies; and a 600 SF chapel. Outside the hospital, walking paths and nature trails throughout 24
the wooded campus adjoin with an existing public pedestrian path and park-and-ride, enabling alternative transportation options for hospital employees, patients, and visitors.
LEGACY HEALTH Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center
ZGF PLANNED AND DESIGNED A SIX-STORY, 469,000 SF MEDICAL CENTER THAT INCLUDES CAPACITY FOR 220 BEDS, TWO FOUR-STORY MEDICAL OFFICE BUILDINGS TOTALING 189,000 SF, WITH A CONNECTING ATRIUM, AND A SEVEN-STORY PARKING STRUCTURE FOR 1,464 CARS.
Legacy Salmon Creek Medical is a facility with an emphasis on patients and their families—a medical center that is ultra-efficient, yet aesthetically beautiful, with a “healing” environment that is comforting and uplifting. The design intent was to create clear, definable circulation systems to orient patients, staff, and visitors beginning at the first entry to the site. Overhead glassenclosed pedestrian bridges link the entire complex. The medical building includes two L-shaped patient towers over a two-story base. The patient towers are angled 28
to maximize views of the adjacent natural habitat and Mount Hood. Indigenous landscaping, pervious surface treatments, natural stormwater detention design, and sensitive site lighting have all been incorporated as sustainable design features in consideration of nearby natural resources. The medical center was named one of America’s Top 10 Greenest Hospitals by the Green Guide for Healthcare.
LEGACY HEALTH Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center, Emergency Department Remodel
ZGF WORKED WITH LEGACY GOOD SAMARITAN MEDICAL CENTER STAFF TO DESIGN IMPROVEMENTS TO THE 16,364 SF EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT, WHICH PROVIDES 24-HOUR EMERGENCY MEDICAL CARE.
The remodel improves work flow and staff efficiency through implementation of Lean principles, gives clarity and identity to points of entry and arrival at the emergency department, and provides a peaceful and supportive interior environment that enhances the quality of the emergency department experience for patients, staff and visitors. The project has enabled Legacy to transform care for patients that use the emergency department by creating three specialized “Pathways to Care”: Oregon’s first combined emergency department and urgent care center; the West Coast’s only Senior Care specialty facility; and a behavioral 32
health care unit. The redesigned interior is sensitive to the unique requirements of an aging population and patients with special needs and includes the addition of windows to enhance the healing environment by providing daylight and outside views. Right-sizing the patient care spaces and the supporting infrastructure gives the department the flexibility to adapt to change and growth over time. In addition to the interior remodel, ZGF designed a new exterior canopy and site improvements for the entry, enhancing the emergency department’s street presence and visual identity at the existing entry to the hospital.
PROVIDENCE HEALTH & SERVICES Providence Portland Medical Center Guest Housing
AS A REGIONAL DESTINATION FOR CANCER CARE AND HEALTH SERVICES, PROVIDENCE PORTLAND MEDICAL CENTER CHOSE TO EXTEND ITS HEALING MISSION THROUGH THE CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW GUEST HOUSE.
The Guest House is a 30-unit facility offering the comforts of home in a peaceful and welcoming setting for patients and families traveling from out of town for medical treatment. It is located just a block from the hospital and adjacent to a residential neighborhood. ZGF’s understanding of Portland zoning requirements, the Providence Portland campus, and its surrounding neighborhood helped steward this project to its successful outcome, which involved the approval of a conditional use. The design respects its context with exterior details carefully scaled to its surroundings;
façade punches break down its massing; and materiality rendering a lodge-like feel. A range of amenity spaces are included—quiet alcoves for reflection, small group seating pods, and larger group gathering areas with outdoor dining / seating— providing patients and their families an array of opportunities to relax, recharge, and connect with other occupants in a community-building environment.
OREGON HEALTH & SCIENCE UNIVERSITY Center for Health & Healing South (CHH South)
ZGF FORMED A COLLABORATIVE PROJECT DELIVERY TEAM WITH OHSU AND THE CONTRACTOR TO DESIGN THE 360,000 SF AMBULATORY HOSPITAL AND 264,000 SF PARKING GARAGE AND CONFERENCE CENTER, TOPPED BY 72,000 SF OF GUEST HOUSING.
The upper six floors of the facility, which will house the Knight Cancer Institute, are being designed to optimize flexibility and incorporate precision medicine in a patient-centered care environment. To achieve the most efficient solution and meet an accelerated schedule, ZGF used a cross-functional, Lean approach to programming and design. The design includes features that maximize the time caregivers provide in-room treatment by implementing just-in-time supply and medication delivery and in-room charting, and providing flexible spaces with fewer fixed and built-in elements 36
to ensure medical assistants have clear visibility to the exam rooms. The design of the infusion center creates four neighborhoods with a mix of private, semiprivate, and open bay patient treatment areas that maximize natural light, patient privacy, and caregiver line of sight. The infusion pharmacy, located directly above the infusion center, is connected to the clinical space with a material lift, decreasing motion of staff and material. A centralized check-in area and the phlebotomy department are located on the first floor, providing patients with connectivity to amenities, such as a cafĂŠ, a fireplace, and lobby space, while waiting for laboratory results and before proceeding to the infusion center. The cancer researcher workplace program, located directly above the clinical cancer floors, provides researchers and staff with an easy connection to the clinical floors.
PROVIDENCE HEALTH & SERVICES Providence Alaska Medical Center, Generations Women’s & Children’s Hospital Tower ANCHORAGE, ALASKA

This involved working with an integrated team of clinic leadership, care providers, laboratory and radiology technicians, administrative and housekeeping staff, and patients assembled to work collaboratively with the design team to create a facility fully-focused on their number one core value to do what is right for the patient. Using eight Integrated Design Events held over
eight months, the team collectively made operational and design decisions to achieve facility outcomes including the 23% reduction of non-patient care space yielding a $2,100,000 savings to the project cost, creating 62 right-sized procedure rooms with 92% flexibility, and an increase in patient satisfaction scores to 89%.
THE EVERETT CLINIC Shoreline Clinic
ZGF PROGRAMMED AND DESIGNED THE TWO-STORY 44,000 SF CLINIC—WHICH REPURPOSED AN EXISTING GROCERY STORE—TO HOUSE 13 DIFFERENT MEDICAL SPECIALTIES, REFLECT TEC’S VALUES, AND STREAMLINE AND ENHANCE THE PATIENT EXPERIENCE BY REDUCING WAIT TIMES AND PROVIDING COMPREHENSIVE CARE IN A SINGLE EASY TO ACCESS LOCATION.
The clinic was designed in just six weeks using a Lean, cross-functional approach. The clinical layout is structured around the public ‘main street’ which connects the front door and lobby to informal waiting areas, exam rooms and group medical appointments. Exam rooms flank a central open plan and team care pod, which allows for onstage and offstage circulation and improved access and wayfinding for both patients
and caregivers. The design team used virtual reality technology to model the space three dimensionally, allowing the client to experience the care environment and make changes prior to construction.
SCIENCE CENTER / WEXFORD SCIENCE + TECHNOLOGY 3737 Science Center, Penn Medicine University City
ZGF WORKED WITH THE UNIVERSITY CITY SCIENCE CENTER AND WEXFORD SCIENCE + TECHNOLOGY IN A JOINT VENTURE TO DESIGN A NEW 357,251 SF FLEXIBLE CLINICAL, OFFICE, AND RESEARCH BUILDING IN PHILADELPHIA.
At 13-stories, 3737 Science Center continues the architectural vocabulary established by 3711 Science Center to visually connect the contiguous buildings. As the anchor tenant, Penn Medicine University City occupies six-and-a-half floors for the Penn Musculoskeletal Institute, a surgery center, and allergy clinic, in addition to radiology, pharmacy, laboratory services, and administrative programs. Another Penn Medicine practice group, Good Shepherd Penn Partners, occupies one-and-a-half floors for its physical therapy practice. Future clinical, office or research laboratory 54
tenants will be supported on the upper floors. The interior environment is designed to enhance the patient experience. A glass-enclosed two-story clinical entrance and lobby with a patient drop-off area accommodates arrivals to the ambulatory center. A separate second lobby services the tenants on the upper floors. A landscaped public terrace encourages pedestrian activity and provides seating. This is the first approved clinical facility in the State of Pennsylvania to utilize active chilled beam technology with enthalpy heat wheel recovery.

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS American Lake Campus Master Plan and Ambulatory Medical Building
ZGF DESIGNED A NEW 76,000 SF OUTPATIENT MEDICAL FACILITY ON THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS’ AMERICAN LAKE CAMPUS, WHICH WILL MORE THAN DOUBLE THE SPACE DEDICATED TO OUTPATIENT SERVICES FOR VETERANS.
In response to the campus’s recent listing on the National Register of Historic Places, a Master Plan and Preservation Plan were developed by ZGF to provide a vision and to guide the next century of development on the historic, pastoral campus. The master plan provides guidelines to enhance the overall patient / family experience by improving campus entry and wayfinding, adding a campus loop road to improve vehicular circulation, enhancing pedestrian connections, improving safety within the campus, and defining campus gateways. Originally planned 58
as a seismic replacement project to Building 81, the new outpatient facility will house specialty clinics, a pharmacy, a laboratory, an infusion clinic, and surgical / gastrointestinal services. Decanting the historic Building 81 will allow non-essential clinic spaces to expand. The new clinic is sited in the heart of the campus to reflect its relationship to existing medical services, and to signify that modern medical care is at the center of this historic campus. A “Court and Garden” scheme was developed to provide clear arrangement of spaces around a central “gathering space” or lobby. The design provides veterans and their families immediate access to the stunning natural environment / healing qualities of the campus, while efficiently arranging the building’s program components on the site. The facility is targeting LEED Gold®.
UC IRVINE HEALTH Facility Master Plan
ZGF PRODUCED A COMPREHENSIVE FACILITY MASTER PLAN, AS WELL AS A PHYSICAL DESIGN FRAMEWORK, TO ASSIST UC IRVINE HEALTH WITH EXPANSION OF SERVICES AND FACILITY DEVELOPMENT AT THE ORANGE AND IRVINE CAMPUSES AND ITS SATELLITE LOCATIONS THROUGH A 2022 PLANNING HORIZON.
Master planning concepts were developed to balance physical, operational, and financial requirements, while keeping the patient experience at the forefront. Working closely with key stakeholders, the ZGF team led a collaborative process that was broken into three phases: Current State, which focused on how care is delivered in its current-2012 state; Future State, which developed guiding principles for a new model of care that needs to be in place to achieve the targeted improvements; and Facility Master Planning Study, which established an
orderly approach for restructuring UC Irvine Health with maximum flexibility to meet the needs of the changing healthcare environment. This information, synthesized with strategic direction, was used to inform forecasting assumptions to establish the right services, at the right size, in the right location. The Physical Design Framework, produced concurrently with the Facility Master Plan, establishes physical design standards, such as architecture, landscape, circulation, lighting, and sustainability, to guide new construction and land planning on the UC Irvine Medical Center Campus to ensure consistency with UC Irvine Healthâ€™s vision for a unified campus to provide state-of-the-art, accessible patient care.
VIRGINIA MASON MEDICAL CENTER Jones Procedural Center
ZGF PLANNED AND DESIGNED THE 25,000 SF STATE-OF-THE-ART INTEGRATED PROCEDURAL CENTER IN THE JONES PAVILION.
The goal of the project was to congregate overlapping invasive procedures services within one department, allowing patients to receive integrated care for varying treatment needs from a singular location on campus. ZGF used a Lean approach to planning to minimize waste, increase operational efficiency, and optimize the patient experience. Working with clinical staff, the team created an environment that facilitates a continuous flow throughout the patient care delivery continuum and keeps patients separate from the staff area. The Center features 12 admit / recovery rooms, with an alternate of two additional rooms, as well as
three C-arm procedure rooms, two bi-plane procedure rooms, and ancillary spaces to support treatment functions.
THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN Dell Medical School, Health Transformation Building and Health Discovery Building

Connections between the upper levels of the two buildings enhance synergies between research and clinical care at the Medical School. Both buildings are LEED Gold®.
UNC HOSPITALS Hillsborough Campus
HILLSBOROUGH, NORTH CAROLINA
WITH THE GOAL OF REACHING DEEPER INTO THE HILLSBOROUGH COMMUNITY, ZGF, IN ASSOCIATION WITH EYP / BJAC, DESIGNED THIS NEW 270,000 SF HOSPITAL ON A GREENFIELD SITE THAT WAS SELECTED IN ORDER TO ACCOMMODATE GROWTH OVER TIME.
As the new home for the UNC Hospitals, Hillsborough campus, this multi-phase project included the campus build-out of a 60,000 SF medical office building (completed in 2013), a 14,000 SF central utility plant, and surface parking. The completion of the LEED-Silver registered hospital—with a Level 2 emergency department, 68 licensed beds, 15 observation beds, a surgical suite with six shared operating rooms and two general procedure rooms, a Post Anesthesia Care Unit, and pre- and post-surgical recovery—concludes the Phase 1 development. The 66
full campus build-out is expected to include more than 800,000 additional square feet of building space. The hospital is designed to expand in place without disturbing the front door and public face of the facility. To that end, the curved façade of the hospital seamlessly links to the existing medical office building. Additional bed towers, expansion of the diagnostic and treatment block, as well as additional medical office buildings, can be added in any order or combination to provide a flexible framework for the future and to maximize the use of the site. The interior color palette and artwork throughout the building are based on North Carolina’s three predominant landscapes: coastal, piedmont, and mountain. Each level of the bed tower features aquas, greens, or purples, along with corresponding nature scenes in signage, artwork, and patient room design.
NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Center
ZGF WON AN INTERNATIONAL DESIGN COMPETITION TO LEAD THE PROGRAMMING, PLANNING, AND DESIGN FOR A 1,200,000 SF ADDITION TO THE EXISTING 2,500,000 SF WARREN G. MAGNUSON CLINICAL CENTER ON NIH’S BETHESDA CAMPUS.
The expansion included a 240-bed replacement hospital for inpatient and outpatient care (620,000 SF), as well as related clinical research laboratories (250,000 SF) in proximity to patient treatment areas. It replaced outdated facilities at the National Institutes of Health and upgraded its research environment, increasing opportunities for physicians and patients to participate in the nation’s top tier of clinical research. The design presented a “campus plan” approach to the new Clinical Research Center by scaling the building elements to modest three- and four-story wings, which 70
step down from the existing Clinical Center toward the neighboring community, bringing the entire complex back into harmony with the rest of the campus and the community. The seven-story science court, adjacent to two outdoor courtyards, is the physical heart of the expanded complex. It provides interaction space on each level. Interstitial spaces maximize flexibility of building systems, allowing laboratories to be converted to patient rooms, or vice versa.
BAY AREA HOSPITAL Hospital Expansion
COOS BAY, OREGON
AS A REGIONAL COMMUNITY HOSPITAL BUILT IN THE 1970’S, THE BAY AREA HOSPITAL UNDERWENT A 44-BED, 110,000 SF EXPANSION AND MAIN LOBBY REMODEL TO ADDRESS GROWING PATIENT NEEDS, CHANGES TO CARE DELIVERY PROTOCOLS, AND A DESIRE FOR INCREASED PERFORMANCE.
The ZGF team worked with hospital leadership to evaluate existing system and resource flows, overall departmental efficiency, and outcomes in keeping with Lean design principles. A steering committee and traditional user groups were formed to evaluate potential procedural and operational changes and their impact on resource availability and value stream considerations, as well as financial impact as part of a business proforma analysis. During schematic design sessions, the design team constructed full-scale 74
mock-ups of proposed room changes to allow staff to evaluate and refine designs as needed. In keeping with the hospital’s role as a community hospital and a primary source of healthcare for both outpatient and inpatient needs, the mock-ups were made available during the organization’s annual family, staff, and community picnic, allowing a broad group of stakeholders to understand the potential changes and their impact on the delivery of patient care. The initial three-story expansion included outpatient services and a pre-surgery laboratory on the first floor, a high-tech ICU and cardiac catheterization laboratory on the second floor, and 30 private rooms with views of two rooftop gardens on the third floor. Later the hospital commissioned ZGF to finish the fourth floor shell space in order to house a 25,000 SF inpatient unit.

MARY DEE HACKER, RN, MBA, VICE PRESIDENT, PATIENT CARE SERVICES, CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL LOS ANGELES
UNIVERSITY OF IOWA HOSPITALS AND CLINICS Stead Family Children’s Hospital
IOWA CITY, IOWA
AS PART OF THE HEERY DESIGN TEAM, ZGF PROVIDED INTERIOR AND GRAPHIC DESIGN SERVICES FOR THE NEW 14-STORY, 507,000 SF UNIVERSITY OF IOWA HOSPITALS AND CLINICS STEAD FAMILY CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL, AS WELL AS THE RENOVATION OF AN EXISTING NICU CONNECTED TO THE NEW BUILDING. THE HOSPITAL HOUSES 189 ACUTE CRITICAL CARE BEDS, IMAGING, DIALYSIS AND INFUSION, AND A PEDIATRIC CANCER CENTER.
The interior design concept took its cues from the hospital’s belief that “individual interdependent pieces can come together to create a greater whole” to tell the story of Iowa’s unique regions and sense of place. Graphic displays on each floor feature one of four scenes— farmlands, wetlands, woodlands, and prairies—to aid in wayfinding. Each scene is comprised of a number 88
of patterns inspired by the nature within each habitat. Layers of detail unfold throughout, displayed through interwoven graphic icons at door entries, finish materials, and the application of color to each floor. These graphics are fully integrated into the main corridors, procedural rooms, patient room entries, stairwells, and the areas surrounding elevators and nurse stations, creating a positive healing environment for patients. The design process included creating full-scale mock-ups of patient rooms and procedural areas to allow patients, technicians, and physicians to experience the space and provide feedback on the displays. The ZGF design team collaborated with artist Larry Kirkland on the coloration and treatment of the large curving wall in the primary lobby, as well as the terrazzo flooring and series of totems and shadow boxes placed throughout the space.
CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL LOS ANGELES Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
TO MEET THE SEISMIC STANDARDS REQUIRED BY CALIFORNIA STATE SENATE BILL 1953, CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL LOS ANGELES UNDERTOOK A MASTER PLANNING EFFORT (COMPLETED BY ZGF) THAT RESULTED IN A SERIES OF PHASED PROJECTS.
The first phase included the new 100,000 SF Saban Research Institute, which doubled existing research space for new initiatives to be undertaken in neuroscience and medical genetics. Subsequently, a new 453-space, below-grade parking structure was located on the south side of Sunset Boulevard, along with a new lobby, entry court, and gardens. The award-winning 317-bed, 494,283 SF Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion provides acute-care pediatric facilities, diagnostic and ancillary services, and a level 1 emergency department / trauma center. The 92
majority of the structure is seven stories. An emergency heliport is located on top of the tower. This new building was designed to address the unique environment of a pediatric facility, while accommodating the needs of inpatients and caregivers from the diverse community. The design team worked with staff, parent focus groups, and patients to guide the development of a vision that would integrate the hospital’s missions of clinical excellence and family-centered care. Critical design issues that emerged focused on such topics as sleeping areas, living rooms inside and outside the care units, age-appropriate diversions within patient rooms and playrooms, access to familiar foods, adequate privacy, and outdoor spaces.
ANN & ROBERT H. LURIE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL OF CHICAGO CHICAGO, ILLINOIS
ZGF, SOLOMON CORDWELL BUENZ, AND ANDERSON MIKOS ARCHITECTS LTD. PLANNED AND DESIGNED THE 1,255,000 SF ANN & ROBERT H. LURIE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL OF CHICAGO. AT 23 STORIES, THE BUILDING IS THE TALLEST CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL IN THE WORLD.
In 2004, ZGF assisted in preparing a vision for the future of the Hospital, which focused on the current physical environment, an evaluation of existing facilities, a comparison to peer institutions, steps involved in creating a Master Plan, and a timeline for realization and implementation. In 2005, the scope grew to include a review of a potential new building program and assessment of site alternatives. In 2006, design of the new building began. The new Lurie Children’s, a Pebble Project® partner, is located on a 1.8-acre site at the Northwestern University Medical School Campus 96
just north of the downtown business center of Chicago. A key driver for the relocation was to be closer to its academic partner, Feinberg School of Medicine, for a stronger collaboration with researchers and clinicians. The LEED Gold® building, which is connected by bridges to the Prentice Women’s Hospital, integrates inpatient care; diagnostic and treatment space; clinical support; and logistical, medical office, and clinical operations. The initial planning calls for 288 beds in Phase I, including 22 observation beds and eight clinical research beds. It has the capacity to expand to 313 inpatient beds.
CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL COLORADO AURORA, COLORADO
ZGF SERVED AS DESIGN ARCHITECT, WORKING IN ASSOCIATION WITH H + L ARCHITECTURE AS ARCHITECT OF RECORD, FOR A NEW 1,440,000 SF REPLACEMENT FACILITY FOR CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL COLORADO, LOCATED NEXT TO THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO DENVER, SCHOOL OF MEDICINE.
Evidence-based design principles informed the design process of this award-winning Pebble Project®, which houses 270 inpatient beds, outpatient clinics, offices, research and education space, and parking. All facilities are state-of-the-art, with flexible technology infrastructure to anticipate the evolution of medicine and the care of children beyond the next century.

CHILDREN’S HEALTH Children’s Medical Center Plano
ZGF, WORKING IN ASSOCIATION WITH PAGE, DESIGNED AN AWARD-WINNING 328,000 SF COMMUNITY HOSPITAL IN SUBURBAN DALLAS.
Sited on 84 acres, Children’s Medical Center at Legacy was conceived as both a complement to the main campus in Dallas, and as a community-based hospital to serve suburban-based families. The facility features three above-ground floors plus a lower garden level, 72 single-patient rooms, four operating rooms (plus shelled space for four more), full-service diagnostics, an urgent / emergency care center, a lobby café, a full-service cafeteria, a chapel, a gift shop, a family resource center, and various patient and family lounges. This is the first children’s hospital to put an ambulatory pediatric facility, not a clinic, on an outlying campus. The building was scaled appropriately to fit its site and 110
blend with the neighboring community, as well as to let the natural setting extend inside. An abundance of “green space” surrounds the building to provide an environment of healing and tranquility. Outdoor spaces were a strong tenet of the initial design for both the healing power of nature and the positive distraction for patients and family. Water is present throughout the site, from a white rock creek just outside the cafeteria / dining room to a peaceful lake on the north end of the site, which draws visitors through landscaped gardens.
LEGACY HEALTH Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel
THE 334,000 SF, NINE-STORY RANDALL CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL, DESIGNED BY ZGF, CONSOLIDATES PEDIATRIC SERVICES IN A FAMILY-CENTERED CARE ENVIRONMENT AND CREATES A NEW IDENTITY FOR THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL, AS WELL AS A NEW FRONT DOOR TO THE LEGACY EMANUEL MEDICAL CENTER CAMPUS.
This facility houses 165 inpatient beds in single rooms for acute care, neonatal intensive care, and pediatric intensive care. It also includes a new pediatric emergency department, a short-stay unit, the Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorder Unit, a pharmacy, and a rehabilitation gym. A new garden off the first floor lobby adds an open space to the garden culture well-established on the campus.

and contemplation. The hospital features a number of amenity spaces for patients, families, and staff, including two-story family lounges, a dedicated art studio and movie theater, a teen center, a workout facility, staff break rooms, and lounges. A key design objective was to integrate soft curving forms throughout the interior design of the hospital. The interiors also celebrate four uplifting color palettes and animal motifs representing the geographic regions served by the hospital: the Willamette Valley, the Cascade Mountain Range, the Oregon Coast, and the desert. Commissioned art, environmental graphics, and art created by patients are also integrated throughout the hospital to provide positive distractions and enliven spaces.
SEATTLE CHILDREN’S Building Hope: Cancer and Critical Care Expansion
UPON SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE LONG RANGE / MAJOR INSTITUTIONAL MASTER PLAN TO EXPAND THE CAMPUS BY 1 MILLION SF, ZGF PROGRAMMED AND DESIGNED THE 330,000 SF CANCER AND CRITICAL CARE EXPANSION.
. Using a Lean, cross-functional approach, the design team engaged a diverse group of over 200 caregivers and family representatives at more than 20 Integrated Design Events to evaluate existing care models, identify areas of waste and improvement, work through process refinement options, and develop design solutions to deliver an operationally efficient patient-centered care environment. The process resulted in a design that tripled the time caregivers provide in-room treatment from 26% to 76%, reduced caregiver travel distances by 80% and supply search time by 90%. 118
Strategies implemented include just-in-time supply and medication delivery, medication preparation in the patient room, in-room charting, flexible furniture systems, demountable partitions, unobstructed views across the unit to patient rooms, and clear wayfinding. The process also resulted in a unique nursing unite configuration and universal rooms design that allows for maximum operational efficiency to accommodate a range of acuity. The building is LEED Gold®.
SEATTLE CHILDRENâ€™S Faculty Physician Workplace
ZGF TRANSFORMED 16,000 SF OF FORMERLY CLOSED PRIVATE OFFICES INTO A HIGHLY COLLABORATIVE OPEN PLAN ENVIRONMENT DESIGNED TO OPTIMIZE SPACE UTILIZATION AND ENHANCE TEAM-BASED CARE.
The first-of-its-kind workspace for the hospital required buy-in from an intergenerational physician staff and leadership previously dispersed across the hospital campus. The result is a paradigm shift in the way the academic medical center organizes their workspaces. Based around six-person neighborhoods that balance collaboration with the need for privacy and contemplative workspace, the project includes a mix of meeting and support spaces in a flexible, technologyrich setting. Using a Lean, cross-functional approach to programming, the team worked through a series of Integrated Design Events to make collective design 122
decisions that greatly decrease travel time so that staff and faculty can spend more time at the patient bedside, while adhering to an accelerated design and construction schedule.
SEATTLE CHILDREN’S South Clinic
FEDERAL WAY, WASHINGTON
ZGF PROGRAMMED AND DESIGNED THE 37,000 SF OUTPATIENT CLINIC IN SEATTLE’S SOUTH PUGET SOUND. REPURPOSING A FORMER CIRCUIT CITY, THE NEW CLINIC HOUSES A RANGE OF SERVICES INCLUDING URGENT CARE, OUTPATIENT CARE, OCCUPATIONAL AND PHYSICAL THERAPY, AND SPECIALTY CLINICS SUCH AS OPHTHALMOLOGY, SPEECH THERAPY, AND SPORTS THERAPY, TO NAME A FEW.
This model brings outpatient services to a convenient community location for patients and families while allowing Seattle Children's main campus facility to focus on acute care services. Using a Lean, cross-functional approach to design—with more than 13 Integrated Design Events that engaged diverse stakeholder groups—ZGF was able to quickly gain consensus on a design that minimizes waste and enhances patient124
centered care. Key outcomes include enhanced access and convenience for patients as they arrive, reduced patient and staff travel distances, reduced storage space, and a 75% decrease in the total number of specialty treatment rooms required, from 20 to five. Additionally, successful project management resulted in a 2.5% savings of the overall project cost.
OREGON HEALTH & SCIENCE UNIVERSITY Doernbecher Children’s Hospital
ZGF DESIGNED A NEW FACILITY FOR DOERNBECHER CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL TO CONSOLIDATE AND EXPAND PREVIOUSLY DISPERSED PEDIATRIC INPATIENT, DIAGNOSTIC, TREATMENT, AND PUBLIC SERVICES.
The 260,000 SF, 80-bed facility includes nursing units, PICU, surgery, radiology, laboratory, clinics, and ancillary services. The design solution needed to creatively respond to the complexity of the steep, narrow site, while providing a link to the OHSU Hospital and Hatfield Research Center to the north. A bridge-like configuration was conceived to connect the new five-story building to critical program elements in the adjacent buildings. Departments are organized along a curved circulation spine, which serves as an orienting device and provides views of Portland and the Cascade Mountains beyond. Outpatient clinics, 126
pharmacy, laboratory, and radiology and rehabilitation departments are all housed on a single level so visitors and outpatients are conveniently separated from the upper inpatient floors. A variety of amenities, comfortable furnishings, extensive use of natural light, and an ambitious art program all contribute to a non-institutional ambiance, while recognizing the needs of patients’ families. Since its completion, ZGF has designed several expansions to convert administrative areas to patient rooms and to accommodate an enlarged inpatient oncology center.
BEIJING CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL Leukemia Center
THE JOINT TEAM OF ZGF AND BEIJING INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN HAVE DESIGNED A NEW 569,066 SF (52,868 SM) LEUKEMIA CENTER FOR THE BEIJING CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL.

GOOD SAMARITAN HOSPITAL Dr. Donald & Beret Mott Children’s Center
ZGF DESIGNED THE 42,000 SF DR. DONALD AND BERET MOTT CHILDREN’S CENTER AT GOOD SAMARITAN HOSPITAL.
The Children’s Center is a family-focused, medically-based facility that provides multidisciplinary intervention services to children and adolescents with special healthcare needs. It houses the Child Development Center, an educationally-based early intervention program for developmentally disabled children that provides and coordinates special programming to enable individuals to reach their highest potential in preparation for entry into public schools or community-based programs. The Child Development Center also offers an integrated preschool, educational programming to measure development growth, early intervention training, and therapy. Both programs have 138
a long history of service to Pierce County children and families. The Children’s Center, established in 1966, is the oldest hospital-based neurodevelopment center in the State of Washington. The facility also houses physician, psychology, orthotic, and adaptive technology services in addition to research, education, and support functions. The primary goal of the design was to provide an exciting, inviting building for the children—a facility that will attract them by providing a non-institutional presence on the Good Samaritan Hospital campus.
BC CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL & BC WOMEN’S HOSPITAL + HEALTH CENTRE Teck Acute Care Centre
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA
ZGF, IN ASSOCIATION WITH HDR | CEI ARCHITECTURE, DESIGNED THE EIGHT-STORY, 640,000 SF CHILDREN’S AND WOMEN’S INPATIENT TOWER AS MEMBERS OF THE AFFINITY P3 (PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP) TEAM.
The primary design objective was to improve care delivery by optimizing access and flow and incorporating Evidence-based design principles such as natural light, views, roof gardens, purposeful art, LED lighting. In response, the team designed the public entry and elevator core to reside along the main circulation concourse of the larger hospital campus and separate public, patient, and staff flows. Inpatient units are standardized in size and layout and are adaptable to meet evolving needs and maximize caregiver time with patients. The new facility includes an emergency
department, imaging and procedural suites, hematology and oncology departments, a high-risk birthing suite, neonatal intensive care units and a pediatric intensive care unit. The design team worked with caregivers, staff, and a patient advisory group to develop a design that provides positive distractions and ease of wayfinding. The building will be LEED Gold®.
Patients have the power of choiceâ€”they own this facility and design their own experience. A patient told me that he felt the healing intensified here because he felt so relaxed.

spaces, and a meditation room. The design provides an architecturally coherent front door for the Health System, clarifies the vehicular and pedestrian entrances to the University Hospital and the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center, and provides rational connections to a new enclosed pedestrian circulation system that will ultimately connect all present and future Health System facilities. The project is LEED-Gold certified.
SEATTLE CANCER CARE ALLIANCE SEATTLE, WASHINGTON
ZGF DESIGNED THE SEATTLE CANCER CARE ALLIANCE (SCCA), WHICH COMBINES THE TALENTS OF THE FRED HUTCHINSON CANCER RESEARCH CENTER, THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON MEDICAL CENTER, AND SEATTLE CHILDREN’S, TO PROVIDE STATE-OF-THE-ART CANCER CARE IN A PATIENT-CENTERED SETTING.
The SCCA facility is located on the dense urban Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center campus. Building on the strengths of each institution, the SCCA supports and extends their respective missions in clinical research and patient care, becoming the front door to premier outpatient cancer care in Washington, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho. The building is designed around the needs of the patient and family, yet also provides an efficient, uplifting atmosphere for physicians and staff. The first phase of the SCCA included 176
159,310 SF with four stories of below-grade parking; a planned expansion to 209,000 SF was recently completed. Also completed was a build-out of the 12,326 SF Women’s Center, which was relocated to a larger space to create an expanded outpatient program for breast oncology, gynecologic oncology, and breast imaging clinics.
THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA The University of Arizona Cancer Center at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center PHOENIX, ARIZONA
IN 2011, ST. JOSEPH’S HOSPITAL AND THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA CANCER CENTER, THE ONLY NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE-DESIGNATED COMPREHENSIVE CANCER CENTER HEADQUARTERED IN ARIZONA, FORMED AN INNOVATIVE COLLABORATION TO DELIVER THE HIGHEST STANDARD OF CANCER CARE WITHIN AN EVIDENCE-BASED, MULTIDISCIPLINARY MODEL, ALONG WITH THE MOST MODERN TECHNOLOGIES, AND A COMPASSIONATE, PATIENT-CENTERED APPROACH.
Planned and designed by ZGF, the new 220,000 SF building includes spaces for radiation oncology, a retail / clinical pharmacy, a boutique, a support and wellness center, infusion, a clinical laboratory with a research component, diagnostic imaging, endoscopy and interventional radiology, exam and procedure rooms, and conference rooms throughout, as well as one floor 178
of shell space to accommodate future growth. A healing garden is located adjacent to the main entrance of the building and visible from the main lobby. The two organizations are working together to recruit cancer specialists, as well as cancer researchers to support clinical trials. As part of the partnership, all inpatient cancer care is being handled at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, and the outpatient treatments are offered at the new cancer facility. The project is registered with the certification goal of LEED Gold®.
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN DIEGO Rebecca and John Moores UCSD Cancer Center
LA JOLLA, CALIFORNIA
ZGF PROGRAMMED AND DESIGNED THE REBECCA AND JOHN MOORES UCSD CANCER CENTER, A MULTIDISCIPLINARY FACILITY DEDICATED TO PROVIDING BASIC SCIENCE, TRANSLATIONAL SCIENCE, AND CLINICAL SERVICE.
The 270,000 SF award-winning facility includes space for clinical care, basic research, cancer prevention and control, and administration departments. The clinical care component includes exam and procedure rooms, radiation oncology, chemotherapy / infusion, imaging, physician offices, and support spaces. The basic research program includes wet-bench research laboratories, laboratory support, and associated office space. The cancer prevention and control program includes administrative space for clinical trials, community outreach, and cancer prevention education 182
programs. Administration is located in the heart of the facility. Patients receive all their outpatient care within one facility, helping to ease the stress and strain on themselves and their families. It is a place for education about the disease and its prevention in a patientoriented, healing environment. A Cancer Commons, along with outdoor gardens, creates spaces of varying size and character to support interaction among faculty and students, while providing space for patients prior to and during treatments.
HACKENSACK UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER John Theurer Cancer Center
HACKENSACK, NEW JERSEY
ZGF, IN ASSOCIATION WITH RONALD SCHMIDT & ASSOCIATES, HAS DESIGNED THE 155,000 SF JOHN THEURER CANCER CENTER TO BUILD UPON HACKENSACK’S ROLE AS NEW JERSEY’S LARGEST TEACHING AND RESEARCH HOSPITAL.
The new cancer center houses radiation oncology and medical oncology, as well oncology research, surgery, exam rooms, and necessary support functions. Patient amenities include yoga classes, a meditative labyrinth room, instructive cooking stations, dining facilities, and rooftop gardens, all of which contribute to the well-being of patients and their families, as well as the clinicians and researchers working at the Center. Offices are conveniently located adjacent to the exam room lines and staff work clusters, and close to the patient infusion areas, providing efficient operations 186
for doctors and staff. The building creates a new and welcoming place of arrival on the northern edge of the medical campus with a three-story entrance atrium that features a Murano glass bird mobile. Perimeter waiting areas are filled with natural light filtered by exterior sunscreens, and provide unobstructed views to the campus, landscaping, and the New York City skyline. The complex also includes a parking structure for 900 vehicles connected by an enclosed pedestrian bridge. The project is LEED Silver®.
There is overwhelming positive feedback from everyone who has toured the unit and many complements about the use of space, color and light. Hat’s off to ZGF. DEBRA GUMBARDO, CHIEF OF PSYCHO-SOCIAL SERVICES, SEATTLE CHILDREN’S
CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL OF PHILADELPHIA Medical Behavioral Unit
WITH NO KNOWN PRECEDENT, CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL OF PHILADELPHIA (CHOP) PURSUED A VISION TO DEVELOP A NEW PEDIATRIC PATIENT CARE UNIT: ONE THAT WOULD MEET THE REQUIREMENTS AND LICENSURE OF AN ACUTE CARE UNIT, AND WOULD PROVIDE A SAFE AND SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR PATIENTS WITH A COMORBID DEVELOPMENTAL, BEHAVIORAL, OR PSYCHIATRIC DIAGNOSIS.
A multidisciplinary team led by ZGF worked together to envision, plan, and design an environment that would support a new model of care for this unique population of patients, that was previously treated in a general medical surgical unit. The new 11,000 SF Medical Behavioral Unit (MBU) is a remodel of an existing unit on CHOP’s main campus in Philadelphia. It provides a supportive environment with programmed spaces not 190
typically found in an acute care unit, such as places for creative activities, relaxation, and two meditation rooms where patients can self-soothe. The unit also includes safety and security features that provide a more therapeutic and dignified environment for this unique patient population. Within the MBU, a specialized lighting system that supports circadian rhythms was developed and implemented in all patient and staff areas, including the corridors. The goal of this impactful lighting system is to mimic the solar day and provide routine lighting exposure to reinforce a body’s natural 24-hour cycle.
CHI FRANCISCAN HEALTH St. Joseph Medical Center, Mental Health Unit Renovation
ZGF DESIGNED THE MENTAL HEALTH UNIT (MHU) TO CONSOLIDATE ALL MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES IN A SINGLE LOCATION ON THE ST. JOSEPH MEDICAL CENTER CAMPUS.
Using a Lean approach to planning and design, ZGF verified the MHU’s vision, operational and functional processes, validation of the unit’s existing program and projection of future needs, development of a number of alternative design concepts, as well as the final design to optimize flow and minimize waste. The group areas were designed to provide more flexible spaces and a greater sense of community for the patients and staff, to support a variety of patient activities throughout the unit while maintaining sight lines critical for patient and staff safety. The ZGF team increased security measures, privacy and visual observation when designing staff 192
areas. The interior design provides a calm and soothing therapeutic environment using natural materials, views of nature, art and lighting.
PROVIDENCE HEALTH & SERVICES Swedish Medical Center-Ballard, Behavioral Health Unit
ZGF PROVIDED PLANNING AND DESIGN FOR THE 15,605 SF EXPANSION AND RELOCATION OF SWEDISH MEDICAL CENTER'S BEHAVIORAL HEALTH UNIT FROM A HIGH ACUITY, URBAN CAMPUS TO A COMMUNITY HOSPITAL IN SEATTLE'S BALLARD NEIGHBORHOOD.
Located on two floors, the project increases the number of patient beds from 10 to 22, and the Unit’s design creates a calm and soothing space that promotes recovery, mindfulness, respect and safety. Light colors and subtle texture on the walls provide visual interest. Materials that absorb sound—rubber floors and special ceiling tiles—foster a peaceful environment. Interior touches, such as mosaic tiles in the common area, provide textural interest while connecting patients to nature. The gradual change in tile color, from dark to very light at the ceiling plane, is a strategy of biophilic 194
design that connotes the relationship between earth and sky. Lighting design throughout the Unit support patients’ circadian function. This lighting changes through the course of a day to mimic the color and intensity of the sun’s light to support healthy circadian rhythms, which have been shown to increase the rate of healing and the effectiveness of the body’s absorption of medicine. Lights in comfort rooms offer patients the ability to change the shade of lighting as a calming effect and a measure of control.
SEATTLE CHILDREN’S Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Unit
ZGF PROGRAMMED AND DESIGNED THE NEW 34,000 SF UNIT WHICH TREATS CHILDREN AGES THREE TO 18 YEARS WITH COMPLEX MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES.
The PBMU expands a 20-bed unit located on one level to 41 beds located across two levels within Seattle Children’s existing hospital. The program provides a variety of spaces that patients can access outside of their single patient rooms, including a dining area, comfort rooms, group rooms, classrooms, and recreational facilities. Following the hospital’s guiding principles of respect for self, others, and the environment, the design is healthy and supportive, maximizing healing connections with the outdoors by adding large windows in patient rooms and incorporating warm and natural materials to aid wayfinding. The facility was designed using a Lean, 196
cross-functional approach to minimize waste and enhance operational efficiency and patient-centered care within a strict budget, while adhering to an accelerated design and construction schedule.
I have found the staff at ZGF Cotter Architects to be an enjoyable group with whom to work, and very much appreciate their innovative design concepts, flexibility, and dedication to seeing the full vision for this project realized.

BAPTIST HOUSING Linwood Seniors Housing
SAANICH, BRITISH COLUMBIA
THE SEVEN-STORY, RESIDENTIAL CARE FACILITY INCLUDES 220 SUITES DESIGNATED FOR COMPLEX RESIDENTIAL CARE (LONG-TERM SKILLED NURSING), AND SUITES DESIGNATED FOR DEMENTIA HOUSING.
Inspired by the individuals who call the project home, the design is deliberately non-institutional and emphasizes connections to nature and the outdoors. The environment intentionally links the lives and experiences of residents, staff, family members, and members of the community, within a safe, calming, and homelike setting. The building organization follows a house / neighborhood model, with each floor making up a neighborhood of two 20-bed houses. The design is highly standardized and flexible so that any house
can easily become dedicated to specific resident groups, such as those with acquired brain injury, memory loss, or behavioral issues. This project was completed by Cotter Architects, prior to entering into partnership with ZGF Architects.
