Design Achievement – Banner Baywood Medical Center is located on a tight, urban campus in Mesa, Arizona. The design of the seven-story bed-tower and new imaging wing maintains an intuitive path of circulation for patients, visitors, and materials despite the zoning and parking limitations of the site. The inpatient units create a patient and user-friendly environment, incorporating a triangular-shape floor layout which offers the most efficient flow for staff, keeping corridor travel distances to a minimum. The Baywood Medical Center implements Banner Health’s new finish and color standards to enhance the patient experience and eases wayfinding and orientation throughout the healing environment.
Scope Summary – The 170,000-SF bed-tower, interior remodel and central plant expansion of Banner Baywood Medical Center followed the completion of a new 640-space parking garage and a 3,000-SF material management building. The first floor of the seven-story bed-tower accommodates a new entrance to the hospital including main lobby, registration, discharge, gift shop, dining room, and drop-off canopy. The second through fifth floors include a new 28-bed CCU/ICU unit, a 26-bed medical-surgical nursing unit, a pharmacy expansion, and cardio pulmonary unit. Floors six and seven are shell space for a future medical-surgical unit. Renovation to the existing hospital included diagnostic imaging, an operating room addition, pre-op/PACU, laboratory, dialysis unit, pharmacy,and staff support spaces. All of the central plant’s chillers, cooling towers, associated piping, and emergency power generation were renovated and expanded to meet the utility needs of this growing campus.
