As the new face of ProMedica Toledo Hospital’s campus, the 686,000 SF, 13-story, 309-bed Generations of Care replacement tower promotes a well-connected environment with a strong link to community through transparency in design and process. The design combines parametric applied research, smart technology, patient-focused care strategies, and sustainable design principles to create a modern patient tower that exemplifies comfort and transformative care inside and out. Parametric applied research infused into the layout of patient units increases caregivers’ access and time with patients, while reducing their walking distances by half. The integration of user-friendly technology throughout the facility encourages multidisciplinary collaboration and coordination between staff and patients to improve clinical outcomes. Curtain walls allow for plentiful natural light, and energy-conserving systems and durable terra cotta masonry panels contribute to an environmentally friendly building design. ProMedica’s brand values are conveyed throughout the project in details like sustainable and responsible landscaping, clear wayfinding, conveniently located services, and clear vertical and horizontal sight lines that promote connectivity within the building.
