“We are pleased to partner with HOK, an acknowledged industry leader, to build an innovative, patient-centric facility that reflects the most advanced health care design principles.”
The Prebys Cardiovascular Institute builds on a legacy of Scripps advancements in pioneering surgical procedures and research to provide the most innovative treatment options to patients with cardiovascular diseases.
Close collaboration with Scripps administrators and clinicians helped the team design a facility that embodies the mission of Scripps with features that support the delivery of care, patient safety, staff efficiency, productivity and functional flexibility.
The 167-bed hospital includes 59 intensive care beds, four operating rooms, two hybrid operating rooms, three cardiac catheterization labs, an electrophysiology lab connected to centralized research labs, and a center for graduate education.
Stacked brick and punched windows lining the north and west facades relate to the La Jolla campus and its architectural character while the curved glass curtain wall on the southeast delivers a message of transparency to the community.
To test design ideas, HOK’s team implemented a mock-up program by putting a modular building setting on one of the parking areas. The space featured key rooms at full scale, including operating rooms, patient rooms, and nurses’ stations. Users tested all aspects of the design including finishes, equipment, clearances, furniture, and furnishings.
Prebys Cardiovascular Institute represents the first phase of a master plan that is transforming the Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla campus.
