Reinventing medical spaces

Northwestern Memorial Hospital was looking for a way to become one of the most well-respected medical centers in the nation—to attract exceptionally talented clinicians and innovative researchers. As an early adopter of the Integrated Ambulatory Care Model, the Feinberg/Galter Pavilions expansion was designed to deliver on Northwestern’s “Patient First” promise. The campus facility provides diagnostic and treatment space as well as clinician practice space.

The overall goal was high efficiency and patient satisfaction. To that end, we designed Galter Pavilion to link outpatient services, physician offices, and administrative space to Feinberg Pavilion’s inpatient services. This improved access and maximized time efficiency for clinicians and convenience for patients. Transitioning between the 22-story towers is effortless thanks to the unique stacking of the pavilions, the skyways, and underground walkways.

The key design idea was to create a sense of timeless quality and permanence featuring materials such as wood, limestone, and marble. Similarly, the exterior embraces inspiration from the existing Neo-Gothic buildings on the medical campus and the surrounding Streeterville neighborhood. Along the tree-lined streetscape, the building also provides amenities for the community including retail, dining, and meeting areas on the ground floor. 

This strategic reinvention by Northwestern Memorial Hospital has improved the day-to-day of both staff and patients and helped to make their facilities even more attractive to future team members.
