Norman Regional Hospital – Healthplex Campus

Norman, OK

Project Description

Norman Regional Health System’s three centers of excellence - the Heart and Vascular Institute, the Women’s and Children’s Pavilion and the Orthopedic Center - each maintains a unique identity adjoined by an arcing spine. Standing tall against the backdrop of the hospital campus, the elevator tower is a beacon viewed throughout the city. The 95-acre master plan includes the existing Healthplex and two medical office buildings, staff parking garage and hospital expansion.

The design team considered how patient care and safety issues could be enhanced by nature, daylight, and color, while positively affecting the experiences of patients, families, and staff. Site position and orientation were top priorities in providing unobstructed views of the water feature, gardens, walking trail and outdoor respites. Natural finishes bring the outdoors inside, while curving corridors flooded with natural light create vistas to the scenery beyond.
