Conceived as a ‘home away from home,’ the site will house transplant patients at subsidized rates and offer comfortable hotel rooms where guests can reside while navigating these emotionally and financially difficult situations.  The building is being partially funded by public donations and the design and construction teams (including Rafael Viñoly Architects) worked on a pro-bono basis.

Rafael Viñoly Architects have just announced the completion of The Translational Research Center at Penn.  This first expansion phase in an overall master plan for Penn Medicine that includes both the University of Pennsylvania Health System and the University’s School of Medicine, the Translational Research Center builds on the original Perelman Center while simultaneously preserving its urban character and laying the groundwork for future development. As a translational facility, the new building unites research and clinical functions under one roof to allow the practices of scientific investigation and patient care to inform one another through close proximity.

NAC-Bellevue-Medical-Center-12 

The new Group Health Bellevue Medical Center is the flagship facility serving the Group Health membership of east King County in western Washington state. Based in nearby Seattle, Group Health is a nonprofit healthcare system that offers medical coverage and healthcare services throughout the Pacific Northwest.

A primary objective of the planning process for the new facility was to promote operational changes that would generate efficiencies and create a superior patient environment. As such, the visioning sessions with the client focused on how Group Health wanted the medical center to function rather than on the building itself.

Rafael Viñoly Architects - Institute for Regeneration Medicine at UCSF Print E-mail

Rafael Viñoly Architects’ design of the Ray and Dagmar Dolby Regeneration Medicine Building at the University of California, San Francisco has been completed.

The project is targeting LEED Gold certification. DPR Construction served as the design-build contractor and the Smith Group served as executive architect.


Located on a steeply sloping urban hillside, the Dolby regeneration medicine building presented the design team a unique challenge: executing a horizontal structure on an uneven site. RVA responded by creating a beautifully sinuous, serpentine building that makes use of every foot of available space.

Henley Halebrown Rorrison - The Waldron in Lewisham, South London Print E-mail
Friday, 10 December 2010 08:17

The phased masterplan development of The Waldron health centre in Lewisham South London has just been completed. Designed to change people’s perception of healthcare, The Waldron is planned around a new civic square framed by the health centre, shops, and a 5-storey development with street level café. Inside, the 6,029 sq m health centre is organised around two courtyard gardens and a spacious foyer featuring a site-specific installation by artist Martin Richman.
HhBR-01Located in the London Borough of Lewisham just north of London’s South Circular inner ring road, in an area in which housing estates and tower blocks populate a discontinuous landscape, the new centre replaces an anonymous single storey health centre with a significant urban development that has a greater capacity to shape the fabric of the locality and form a backdrop for public activity.

Featuring a 24-hour emergency department, this hospital designed by Seattle based ZGF Architects for the Franciscan Health System, is equipped to handle trauma cases and includes medical, surgical and critical care units; inpatient and outpatient surgery; a heart catheterization laboratory; diagnostic services (including MRI, CT scans, ultrasound and mammography); and physical, occupational and speech therapies.

The main hospital is connected to the 95,000 SF Milgard Medical Pavilion which houses medical offices and the Jane Thompson Russell Cancer Care Center, an integrated cancer center offering programs for patients and families. The project also includes parking for 700 cars.

A Community in Need

Prior to the completion of the new St. Anthony Hospital, the South Sound Region represented one of the largest population centers in the State of Washington without a central community hospital. As a result more than 3,500 emergencies and 4,000 patients requiring overnight care had to travel well outside of the area for treatment annually.
