60+ Years of Design + Innovation

A Healing Environment that Connects with Nature

Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula Pavilion Expansion
Monterey, California, USA

“The pavilions project was particularly challenging for the architects in that we charged them with maintaining the design aesthetic of our original Edward Durell Stone building into the entire new project. HOK has accomplished this admirably. In addition, HOK has had to deal with sensitive site issues, given that the hospital resides within the California coastal zone, with significant building limitations imposed by the California Coastal Commission.”

Dr. Steven Packer
CEO, Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula

Healthcare Business & Technology named this community hospital one of the “25 most beautiful hospitals in the world.”

HOK designed an expansion that doubled the size of the hospital while adding state-of-the-art technology based on the modern care protocols.

Completed through a design-build delivery model, the project included a 200,000-sq.-ft. new building and a 90,000-sq.-ft. expansion.

Architectural Record reported that HOK’s major design challenge was “maintaining the Zen-like peacefulness and iconic design of a complex that has become a fixture in the community while carrying out such an extensive enlargement and modernization and adhering to the incredibly strict regulations of the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development.”

A new patient bed wing and diagnostic and treatment center feature 100 percent single-bed, multi-acuity patient rooms developed around a series of healing gardens.

The project includes a new surgery and cardiac surgery department, a new cardiac catheterization department, a new emergency department, a renovated and expanded radiology department, support services, mechanical plant and structured parking.

The design helps patients relax. CHOMP overlooks the Pacific Ocean and Monterey pine forests. This expansion blends into the environmentally protected area while maintaining the character and integrity of the original facility, designed by architect Edward Durell Stone.
