Design Features

Housed within the 21-story main tower are new clinical spaces including operating rooms, imaging suites, inpatient rooms, pharmacy, nutrition, translational research and outpatient services as well as a conference center and support spaces. The design integrates space for research and education on each patient floor, providing a collaborative environment that will accelerate the development of new diagnostic and personalized treatment tools.

In addition to leading the design and construction of the fifth floor outpatient services center, Moody Nolan led the renovation planning and design efforts for the project which included work in Ross, Doan and James Halls. These buildings were renovated for CSS, emergency medicine, materials management and environmental services.
