Hospital Surgical Pavilion
The new 477,000-square-foot MedStar Georgetown University Hospital (MGUH) Medical/Surgical Pavilion in Washington, DC is designed to optimize health care delivery, streamline hospital services, and meet the current and future demands of a growing and aging population. It will accommodate the three essential needs of a world-class academic medical centre: excellent clinical care, a strong foundation in education, and leading-edge research.
Slated for completion in 2022, the six-storey pavilion will boast 32 state-of-the-art operating rooms, an intraoperative MRI suite, an expanded emergency department with 33 exam rooms to serve 36,000 patients a year, a central sterile processing department, and other facilities designed to improve the quality of health care for patients and advance ground-breaking medical research. It will be connected to the main MGUH at the ground, first and fourth floors. The layout will be specifically tailored to improve patient access, wayfinding and circulation throughout the entire hospital complex.
A series of enhancements, such as a rooftop helipad with direct access to surgical and emergency facilities, 156 private patient rooms, and a three-level, 600-car underground parking garage, will ensure greater accessibility and a better overall experience for patients and visitors alike. The new pavilion will also connect to the Georgetown University central chilled water, steam, and condensate systems.
The surrounding green space will be doubled to create a more open and attractive campus. The result will be an optimal surgical and clinical environment featuring the latest technologies, which will be instrumental in attracting the best and brightest students, researchers, and medical professionals.
In addition, the expanded facilities will help cement MGUH’s reputation as an authority in cancer treatment, transplant medicine, orthopedics, neuroscience, and other key disciplines.
This represents the largest healthcare project in the history of the District of Columbia. The project is designed in line with LEED® Silver certification requirements. Both the hospital and university will remain operational during construction.
