Central to a grasp plan to remodel The MetroHealth System’s important campus in Cleveland, the 800,000-square-foot Glick Heart opened in November 2022 as a catalyst to carry hope and therapeutic to town’s various and economically challenged West Facet. (For extra on the mission, learn this HCD journal function.)

The mission was submitted to the Design Showcase by HGA (Milwaukee). And whereas it’s primed to ship care effectively in the present day, it’s prepared for the longer term because of a “process-neutral” platform that solutions a name to realize limitless flexibility to adapt to alter in each expertise and care supply.

To that finish, the constructing design leverages modular and open flooring plans, movable partitions, prefabricated elements, and demountable methods that permit rooms and areas to be rapidly reconfigured. Service platforms are common to allow simple flexing between service strains, as wanted.

In the meantime, the grasp plan additional establishes the $608 million mission as a “hospital in a park” in response to an absence of greenspace within the surrounding group; when accomplished, the hospital can be surrounded by 25 acres of landscaped parks.

The design additional serves the group via its arts program, offering house for music, dance, theater, and visible arts.
