Promoting quality and enhancing experience for the patients of UPMC West Shore

The healthcare system listened to their patients and the community who wanted PinnacleHealth’s quality and experience, as well as a magnet hospital, for Harrisburg, Pennsylvania’s West Shore area. By building the new five story, 108-bed facility, they are accommodating that request.

A primary objective for team: design and build West Shore Hospital in under two years, and do so in the most cost-effective manner possible. Our design relied heavily on moderating elements such as structural regularity, simplicity of detailing and the ability to prefabricate elements off-site, such as precast concrete panels and punched windows. In addition, by using Building Information Modeling (BIM), the project team developed an exceptionally well-coordinated three-dimensional design that guides efficient use of field labor.

Future expansion of the facility is also critical to the long term success of the project. Each floor is designed to expand horizontally with no loss of existing program space. Similarly, the surgical suite can add additional operating room’s by expanding to the adjacent corridor and ED, cardiac care and radiology departments are designed to expand horizontally at grade.
