Design Achievement—Envisioned as the hospital of the future, the Cleveland Clinic Avon Hospital leverages flexibility and technology while incorporating an interdisciplinary team approach to both medicine and services. Simultaneous to design, medical staff developed a work flow process to coordinate with interdisciplinary teaming, e-hospital, and technological advancements. The design, which is informed by process mapping of patient, material, and support services, results in a 15
percent reduction of space compared to an average acute care hospital in the United States. Visioning sessions involving enterprise leaders and researchers in the analysis of multiple mock-ups of patient rooms led to the final selection of a same-handed room configuration. Within the room, the patient conveniently controls lighting and temperature, as well as personal information systems through an interactive television. The judicious use of acoustic treatments and enclosure of the interdisciplinary work stations creates a quiet patient environment.

Scope Summary—This project included a 225,000 SF inpatient bed tower expansion of a an existing family heath and ambulatory surgical center. The scope added 126 inpatient beds, 12 intensive care beds, two new operating rooms, a pharmacy, a lab, dietary services, and an expansion of the emergency and imaging departments. Developed on an environmentally sensitive site that contains wetlands, the parking expansion represents one of the most extensive uses of permeable pavers in the United States.
