TMP designed the Medical Center of Southeast Texas to optimize comfort and functionality while providing enhanced staff and patient flow. The 350,000 square-foot facility contains the consolidated programs of Park Place Medical Center and Mid-Jefferson Hospital. The building’s exterior colors and massing recall the resort hotels that dot the gulf coast from Texas to Florida. The new facility has become a catalyst for commercial development in the surrounding area.
Key aspects of the project:
- A master plan that allows for significant future growth of the hospital and related uses such as medical office buildings.
- A design scheme that features major “streets” and neighborhood blocks to simplify wayfinding and to increase flexibility for future change.
- Staff lounges on patient floors that are on the exterior wall to allow for natural light and views. All patient rooms are private with window views of the surrounding community.
- The collaboration between the design team and contractor resulted in a 30-month delivery schedule.
