Morris Hyman Critical Care Pavilion

Over the last two decades, Washington Hospital Healthcare System (WHHS) has been engaged in a multiphase campus modernization. During the project’s second phase, Ratcliff was hired to oversee the final design and construction of the Morris Hyman Critical Care Pavilion, and to evaluate the hospital’s existing master plan. We began by assessing existing hospital and department needs to learn how patients and staff were utilizing space and circulation throughout the campus. This data informed the third phase of the project, where our team addressed options for either a new hospital facility or an update to the current OSHPD SPC-2 building. Working with engineers and cost consultants, we compared the benefits of new construction to the advantages of redesigning the existing hospital by evaluating cost control and operational efficiency during construction for both scenarios. Even though redesigning the existing facility was the more affordable option, we determined that new construction would reduce the amount of time and disruption to the campus. While plans for the new hospital are underway, we have also completed the design for a bridge that will link the Hyman Pavilion directly to the Center for Joint Replacement, allowing for the facility to remain connected to the campus after the new hospital and master plan have been completed. We are also designing several departmental projects, including buildouts for surgery, sterile processing, imaging, and pharmacy, as well as remodels of gastroenterology/endoscopy and a rehabilitation unit.
