This new 7-story, 343,000 SF patient tower was the result of a system-wide transformational masterplan for Summa Health. The objectives were to create additional private patient rooms, consolidate women’s health services, expand surgery capacity, and create a new front door for the hospital. The result is a design with simple forms and massive curvatures that conveys the health system’s identity while complementing the existing campus architecture. A grand, 2-story lobby creates a prominent front entrance, while a curved wood accent wall provides clear wayfinding. A comprehensive Breast Center is prominently located as a symbol of Summa’s commitment to women’s health. A new labor and delivery department provides enhanced mother/baby facilities and services. Three floors of modern, private patient rooms utilize natural light, provide expansive views, and promote family involvement. The tower changes the city’s skyline and provides a new neighborhood identity.
