“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.”
Close collaboration with Scripps administrators and clinicians has helped the team design a facility that incorporates advanced thinking in patient-centered care while supporting the recognized programs of progressive cardiovascular care of Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla and Scripps Clinic/Scripps Green Hospital.
The building will include 108 medical/surgical beds, 60 intensive care unit beds, 10 interventional/operating rooms, a new central energy plant, a sterile processing department and space for a future expansion of the emergency department.
Respectful of the traditional design on the existing campus, the team used four materials — brick, glass, steel and metal panels — to create direct, readable forms.
When it opens in 2015, the institute will house the most advanced diagnostic and treatment options for patients with cardiovascular diseases. It also will serve as a center for medical research, clinical trials and graduate medical education.
