Seton Medical Center Expansion Plan & Master Facility Plan - Seton Healthcare Network
Broaddus Planning was retained to prepare a planning study for a major facilities expansion for Seton Medical Center and a long-range master plan for its future facilities improvements. The intent of the plan was to outline the specific parameters of an immediate building expansion, while at the same time providing a plan with maximum potential to accommodate future changes in protocol and facilities needs within the hospital.
The recommended plan for the hospital included a vertical expansion encompassing the area currently utilized as private parking. This solution allowed for necessary expansion of the Cardiology Department and other medical surgery beds, while also providing a dedicated vehicular passenger drop-off at the first floor level. The plan also provides maximum flexibility for future enhancements and expansion within the hospital. Including future build-out of the NICU, the project encompasses 143,136 SF of renovation and new construction.
The Seton Medical Center Master Facility Plan accommodates the specific near-term projects in a prioritized implementation plan, as well as the long-range strategic and departmental projections of the hospital. The team worked in close collaboration with the Seton Medical Center senior administration, Seton Network Facilities, Seton Network Planning, Network Real Estate and an associated long-term tenant on Seton property to prepare a comprehensive plan for future growth.
