*Previous Personal Experience of Stephen Reinel
The replacement hospital in Palm Coast, Florida was built for Florida Hospital in 2002. The new hospital and attached medical office building is 300,000sf built at a cost of approximately $60 million. Major components of the program included an 81-bed patient tower with ICU and step-down beds, full laboratory, imaging, surgery and outpatient surgery, emergency cardiac rehabilitation, medical and radiation oncology and ancillary services. The building infrastructure was designed to accept an additional bed tower to double the number of inpatient beds.
The new hospital is a three-story, state-of-the-art, approximately 300,000sf facility. The design mixes traditional design elements with contemporary design elements to provide community residents with an inviting look and feel while paying tribute to emerging technology in medicine.
The building was designed before the advent of LEED but was deemed by Florida Hospital to be an economical, sustainable solution to their building needs at the time. The building structure is a steel frame with light-gauge steel exterior studs, sheathing and a synthetic stucco system. There is one linear accelerator vault in the Oncology department with space for a future vault adjacent to it.
