Houston Methodist West Hospital

Houston, TX

Project Description

Designed for flexibility and planned to accommodate future expansions, the Houston Methodist West Hospital is located on a beautifully landscaped 42-acre campus. Preserving several old growth oak trees, and accented by multiple outdoor water features and gardens, evidence-based design concepts, patient safety principals, energy efficient and infection control strategies were implemented throughout the hospital to promote healing and ensure patient and staff safety, comfort and well-being.

The first phase of the campus included a six-story hospital and medical office building, and a remote central utility plant. Completing the phase I masterplan was a 1,200-car parking garage and an additional Medical Office Building. A campus-wide third floor public concourse level includes sky plazas and enclosed walkways connecting the public buildings and parking garages to keep patients, visitors and staff members protected from the elements.
