Encompassing more than 550,000 SF, the expansion of Riverside Community Hospital is one of the largest projects Nashville-based HCA Healthcare and Perkins+Will have completed over a 25-year relationship. Opened in 2017, the 7-story expansion includes a perinatal unit, a 12-bed intensive care unit, and medical/surgical nursing units (60 beds total), as well as a new lobby, dietary, clinical laboratory, central utility plant, and loading dock. Shell space is included on multiple floors to allow future expansion of inpatient bed capacity, imaging, and surgical services. The new tower establishes a formal datum connecting new and existing hospital buildings. This connecting path enhances site flow and patient/visitor wayfinding on campus. Exterior glazing is used strategically to maximize scenic views.
