Surgery Center Expansion

Salem, Ohio    map
Status: Complete

This new 32,000 sf, two-story surgery center includes a suite of six operating rooms arranged around a sterile core with potential for future expansion to eight ORs. The design provides natural light, logical circulation separating staff, public and patient traffic, and maximizes adaptability/flexibility. Adjacent inpatient and ambulatory areas are each other's overflow space and feature universal bays to handle pre- and post-operative patients. Intended to blend with the original campus, the design reconfigures the existing palette and materials for the 21st century. This project is enrolled in the Green Guide for Healthcare's pilot program.
